Hi Sophie, one suggestion from our social media followers:

"Chionodoxa in bud perhaps?"

We hope that helps?

Hi Pamela, some helpful replies from social media:

"Yes it is indeed. Amelanchier lamarckii."
"I'd say that's a definite yes"
Another vote for the same "Amelanchier lamarkii"

Re: Trying to identify this plant.

from Nicola

Hi Emily, a reply from a helpful social media follower:

"Kalanchoe blossfeldiana looks like a good bet"

Another says "If you even know the name kalanchoe blossfeldiana it’s a safe bet you’re right."

Hope that helps?

Re: jonquil dafodil ??

from Nicola

Hi Peter, a very helpful reply from a follower on our social media:

"This could be Narcissus 'Minnow' (Daffodil 'Minnow'), a dwarf Tazetta type (Group 8). I'm growing these too, and they're just opening now."

Hope that helps?

Re: What is the name

from Nicola

Hi Pauline, some helpful replies from our followers on social media:

"Flowering currant, or ribes sanguinem."
"Ribes sanguineum or flowering currant."
"Definitely Ribes sanguineum, possibly 'Pulborough Scarlet'."
"Ribes, a decorative non-fruiting currant. There's a white version too"

Hope that helps?

p.s. all our ribes sanguinem

p.s.s."Tends to grow outside old derelict houses; I took a cutting from one and it's now a big plant that lets you know when spring is here (pic attached)"

Re: Bush in front garden

from Nicola

Hi Lisa, are the foliage and flower heads aromatic? If you rub them between your fingers do they have a scent?

It looks dead .. or almost dead form of 'Lavender'.

Hope that helps?

Re: My ‘immortelle’ sold as Xeranthymum does not look like daisies - leaves more like euphorbia and more like purple stock

from Nicola

Hi Bridget a few followers on social media all agree:

Erysimum ‘Bowles Mauve’

"It’s the ultimate ‘live fast die young’ plant. Flower’s it’s socks off for 5 years tops then keels over."

"Roots so easily, thankfully, if you can only find a non-flowering piece in the summer."

"Perennial wallflower, probably Bowles Mauve."

Also a photo attached. Hope this helps?
