Unknown shrub/small tree?

Question from Sophia Silverman

In forum: Identify a plant

It has thorns and little green berries/seeds at the moment (July). I think it has been left to grow so may be overgrown. It's currently about 2.5m high. Thanks

unknown beetle

Question from Liz

In forum: Pests and diseases

Hi
I found these 3 little critters under my dahlia pot this morning. Any idea what they are? Are they good for the garden or bad? If they're bad, how do I eradicate them?
Thank you Liz

Raised Metal walkway

Comment from martin

In forum: Garden design

Good afternoon

Im undertaking a garden redesign
One part of the project is a raised walkway but im struggling to find anyone that can help me with this.

it consists of three lengths set out in an "s" shape
the lengths are 2 x 3m by .8-1m wide and a shorter one of 2m by .8-1m wide.
the walkway would be .25m above the finished level with lights and plants under so an open appearance would be desired.
Ive included a plan and a few pictures to explain it more clearly
I’m thinking a galvanised structure bolted together on site that the grill sits in. The structure will be sat on concrete pads.
The trouble is I have no idea who could make this for me. Any ideas at all.
I’m in Devon in the uk.

Does anyone know what this is?
Found it growing in the pond margins last year. It died back over winter but has returned this year.

Mystery plant

Question from Jill Sales

In forum: Identify a plant

Does anyone recognise this plant? I have tried several plant apps but they are not consistent in their identification. The plant is low growing with very woody stems and slightly swollen leaves giving it the appearance of some sort of succulent. It appears to be hardy having survived last winter without protection. The flower buds are dark pink and the flowers very pale pink with five petals.

Can anyone identify these 2 plants ?

Question from Graham Chapman

In forum: Identify a plant

These 2 plants have appeared in my garden this year, probably bird-sown or from compost. They look like they are doing a reasonable job of ground-cover - up to 30cm high. Guessing one may be a common or garden potato, but may be something more interesting. Wondering whether I should keep or treat as weeds . . .
