What is wrong? Disease?

Question from Diana Gibbs

In forum: Cistus ladanifer 'Pat'

What is wrong? Our plant flowered beautifully at first in early June, but since then the buds have died and the inner parts of the branches have lost their leaves, some leaf stems look blackened. Does anyone know what's wrong and what to do to save the plant? From Diana in Suffolk

Can anyone identify this?

Question from Alan Brown

In forum: Identify a plant

This appeared unannounced in my garden a couple of months ago and is already 5 feet tall.
Its thousands of small goblet-shaped flower buds contain creamy-white petals but hardly any have opened yet.

How to cut and grow magnolia cuttings

Question from MARK C. LEE

In forum: Trees and shrubs

Hi, have a magnolia that I would like to take cuttings of to grow on, I'm new to this so help is needed. I have a non electric propagator along with cutting gel and compost, what I need to know is how to take the cuttings and then how to grow on. Do I keep them indoors or outside during the day, these sort of questions.
Thanks Mark

Please help identify this plant, growing in East coast Scotland

Question from Kate Anstruther

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi there
Please can someone help with identifying this plant? It is growing in a community bed in Fife on the East coast of Scotland, south-facing and in the sun (when it shines!). I can't quite remember but I think it's evergreen and it has white flowers which, as you can see, are now over, but started in April. Thank you so much for any help!
