Re: Shrub with ball type flowers?

from Philip Slade

Hi, thanks for your reply. I had a look online and I don't think that's it. The flowers don't look the same.

Re: Re: Is the Care Calendar Location Specific

from Philip Slade

Hi Nicola

Thanks for your reply. I must have missed where in the emails it gives a range. The emails give care instructions for February, say. It might be useful if it also said "and March, April".

I thought her point was fair enough because it takes some time for gardens up here to wake up. That said I do have some crocuses coming through.

Thanks

Phil

Is the Care Calendar Location Specific

from Philip Slade

I love the facility which sends through reminders about jobs to be done for each month. I was speaking to a friend at our gardening club about it and she was very keen on the concept.

She then asked if the calendar is based on the weather in the South of England because up in the North of Scotland we can be a good month or two behind. She was concerned that the website would give suggestions which could be detrimental if based on an assumption for England. Ie pruning could end up being done at the wrong time which ends up damaging a plant.

I couldn't answer her.

Re: Re: Is this a weed and what is it?

from Philip Slade

Yep I think that's it. All this time I have been calling it a weed because it smothers everything. So it is actually a lily. I have been pulling it out for years, it doesn't seem to mind.

Thank you. These forums are so helpful.

Re: Is this a weed and what is it?

from Philip Slade

I decided to leave some of my weed alone and see what it did. Well it turns out it has a flower, and quite a bonnie one too.

Hopefully someone will know what it is now.

Re: Re: Help identifying a plant. Tall and blue/purple/indigo ish

from Philip Slade

Thank you. It grows not far from our house. We wondered if it might be a nice addition. However, I think it's best enjoyed from a distance.

Help identifying a plant. Tall and blue/purple/indigo ish

from Philip Slade

I was hoping some members might be able to shed some light on what this plant might be. We quite like it.

Re: Yellow daisy like plant. Any ideas what it might be?

from Philip Slade

It looks very much like this.

So I think we have a winner. Anthemis Tinctoria, not sure on the variety.

from Philip Slade

On second thoughts (and following a nose through Google) I think your first suggestion might be right. Ox eye chamomile maybe
