In forum: Identify a plant

Hello, I'd appreciate it if anyone could identify this plant for me. I bought a selection of seeds last year and didn't label them correctly when I planted them. I dislike not knowing what it is I'm growing. Here it is:

Moving a Photinia x fraseri 'Red Robin'

Question from Steve

In forum: Trees and shrubs

Hi,
I have a Red Robin, about 5ft x 4ft, planted in heavy clay. I want to move this from the front garden to the rear garden and let it grow into a high screening hedge. Is now a good time to transplant or should i root prune and wait until Autumn. I don't want it getting too big for transplanting so should i also prune it back? It will go into a border where the soil has been improved as I know they dont like clay that much, although it is growing quite well where it is.

Uploaded photo size

Comment from John Bates

In forum: Suggestion box

Hello Shoot
Just finding some of the photo's uploaded very small to identify the plants - is there any way of increasing the size of photo's stored. Also can people edit photos once uploaded as often they are side on or upside down - so plant ident is made more difficult.
Regards John

What plant is it? How can we best care for it?

Question from Michael Salmon

In forum: Identify a plant

My wife was given the plant about 20 years ago and we've never seen another one. We've propagated it twice from cuttings. The older leaves have purple veins and have lost much of their colour; there are some young leaves which are still bright green. We'd be grateful for any advice on what it is and how to care for it. Thank you.

can anyone identify this bush in my garden?

Question from neil mcferran

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi, can anyone identify this bush in my garden? My Mum planted it years ago, but had forgotten its name. It’s in a shady place, has grown to about 6 feet high, quite round shape.
It’s just flowered, flowers must have come & gone in a couple of days, they’re tiny & white, with 4 petals, on a long stem, which turn into the little brown balls on stems you can see. Hopefully you can make out the flowers in one of the pictures. Thanks for any help.

Can anyone identify these two plants?

Comment from max nathan

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi all - I need a hand identifying a couple of plants in the garden of my new flat.

Plant 1 is ground cover, and seems to be doing well in a north facing bed.

Plant 2 was left in a pot and is currently in partial shade. It doesn't look so happy.

Many thanks in advance!

Max
