Re: Re: can u help me identify this supermarket bargain bucket item?

Thank you. I've compared my plant to choisyas on this website - and I think you're right (plus, it's the sort of shrub Tesco would sell!). It probably looked bedraggled because it's spent a weekend inside my house. It's outside now - a bit of northern air and rainfall will soon perk it up (that is my philosophy for most plants to be honest).

can u help me identify this supermarket bargain bucket item?

from Helen

Hello all. This plant was reduced to a quid, because it had no label. Its about 10 inch high, and the stems are quite sturdy (but not woody). It was with outdoor shrubs, so I'm assuming this is also a shrub. Leaves are about 2" long, there's no sign of any flowers. Any ideas???

Friend or Foe - are these weeds or plants?

from Helen

The following three plants/weeds have appeared in my new perrenials bed; and I'm not sure if they're plants or weeds. Image 1 has only appeared this year, but it's everywhere! Image 2 is a ground creeper (I only noticed it when photographing the others). Image 3 comes back every year and is prolific. It's dying off a bit now - but normally has white flowerheads. Any ideas???

Can you help identify this tree

from Helen

This tree has been in my garden for 12yrs. In August it was super-healthy. In Sept it died; it literally took 48hrs for it to go from healthy to dead! I have no idea why; but the neighbouring well-established honeysuckle has also died. Should I dig it out - or leave it as a framework to grow something else up? I would still like to know what tree it was (and any ideas why it died - only thing I can think of is that I had recently pruned it). Thanks for the help.
