I am looking for a stockist for this Rose. Our grandson, Christopher, died suddenly aged 15 years old and I would love to have a rose in his name. If anyone knows of a garden centre which stocks this variety please let me know. Thanks Charlotte

Auto log out question

Question from Ian Bridgford

In forum: How to use the site

Hi, It seems I get logged out after a short period if I don't do anything on the site.

Is it possible to create a longer delay before the site automatically logs you out ?

Thanks

Unidentified plants - help

Photo from Mark Anderson

In forum: Identify a plant

Just taken over an allotment and trying to identify a couple of plants. Not that easy as they are not in leaf but any suggestions most welcome. I suspect they have been grown for fruit given their position in the plot. One is low growing almost ginger like appearance. Other is a woody shrub which has had bird protection over it.

Is this a weed?

Question from Mike Craigie

In forum: Identify a plant

I had thought this was a rhododendron going mad but looking again the cross-section of the shoots is almost bamboo-like(?)
Growing 6ft plus and not overly-attractive - there was a rhododendron in front I think but you’ll see that’s gone woody and probably dead tbh
Any help appreciated!

Can anyone suggest a low growing plant to deter pigeons?

Question from mrs finch

In forum: General

Hi, my bird feeder is in a prime spot where I can see it from the conservatory. Despite using no mess bird food there is always a pigeon or two waddling around underneath it trampling anything I attempt to grow. Can anyone suggest a low growing evergreen prickly plant that I can plant round it. Preferably, but not essentially something that smaller birds can hop through/under. Thankyou.

what is this small leaved shrub?

Question from Peter Moore

In forum: Identify a plant

Today I have divided a not very attractive shrub. I've kept it pruned back to 1•5m height. It's never flowered or and doesn't lose its small leaves in winter. It had spread out sideways over the years. So I've been able to dig up and replant the offshoots. What is it?

In forum: Identify a plant

Please could anybody help with identifying this house plant for me? I need to know how much to water it. And if I re-pot it into a bigger pot is it likely to grow taller/bigger?

Question from sally Walker

In forum: My Favourite Plant

I have placed lots of requests for plants to be added to the Shoot listing over the past month as seeds go in, but none appear to have been acknowledged? Anyone got ideas on how to improve the process?
