Get help identifying a plant here. Post images of plants you are trying to identify and give us a description of the plant. Please take a few images and post them all into the same 'forum topic thread'.

Images should be close-up of flowers, leaves, fruit and far away to give a sense of the scale and shape of the plant. Please add a description e.g. if the plant is evergreen, when it is blooming, height etc. It is always nice to have both the flower and leaf.

We will do our best for you to help identify it!

Hedge- help to identify and treat please

Question from Melanie Harries

I’ve recently moved into a house with a hedge which is showing brown patches. Being a complete novice to gardening, I’m not sure what it is and therefore how to treat it. I have had some advice that it is irreversible damage and should be removed but want to check this is correct before taking drastic action, as I’d much prefer to treat and keep th hedge if at all possible. Any advice very welcome!
Many thanks in advance,

What’s emerging in my new garden?

Comment from Clare Hayes

We moved to a new house in December and plants are now emerging. Can anyone tell me what this is going to be? I know I could wait for it to grow but I’m too curious ???? I think those are bluebells emerging behind.

Can anyone identify this?

Question from Susan Elvin

I thought it was called Arlequina (i.e. Spanish version of Harlequin) but can't find any plants of that name. It is a bulb, flowering now.

Acanthus type

Hi. Can anybody help me to identify the plant at the back of the photo. I believe it to be acanthus but it has smaller leaves than my other acanthus plants. It has a white acanthus type flower. Thank you Anthony
