Question from Louisa Croft

In forum: Identify a plant

First time this seemingly mature plant has flowered in 2 years.

We only know it flowers either every five Or seven years.

Growing in Kent, sunny garden, sheltered with fencing and trees and nearby houses.

Thanks in advance, Lou

Is this a weed?

General post from helen inkles

In forum: Identify a plant

This plant is about a 1m high. It has beautiful foliage but tiny whitish flowers which are about to flower in June. The flowers look like a weed, but not the foliage. Anyone know what plant this is?

Cherry Tree

Question from Mark Nicholls

In forum: Pests, diseases and weeds

We have two years old cherry tree which this year had an abundance of cherries growing on it. However, one day they all but got eaten. Not sure if this is due to birds or squirrels.
How can I stop this from happening?

Please help me to identify this plant

Question from Ann Di Marco

In forum: Identify a plant

I live in SW France and I took these photos 3 days ago. The "flowers" are a dirty pink colour but are full of air. Indeed, it's like popping bubble wrap!! The shrub is about 6 feet tall with a similar spread. There were a few examples outside a planted shopping area, in full sun.

I think the flowers are actually seed pods. The outer covering is paper thin and when dried is like tissue paper. I cut one open to reveal the seeds inside.

I took this cutting to a local garden centre who immediately said they had no idea!! It's so unusual that I'd really like to have one.

Any ideas please?

Does anyone know his plant?

Question from Stephen Collitt

In forum: Identify a plant

I moved to my address a little over a year ago. In my west-facing front garden a tall flower appeared last spring and again this spring. It is erect with branches and cerise-coloured flowers are borne on the branches.
