As this group is so helpful - please could someone identify some more plants?
I've got a big garden and basically been winging it so far but desperate to learn how to care for the plants I have (been trying to find a knowledgeable gardener for years) with little success. If these can be identified I can start to look them up and hopefully learn how to care for them a bit more .... these are some of the plants in this border.
I have two triangular raised beds, a large rockery round the front and a pond with stream. I need to identify just about everything in them all but going to take it a section at a time to stop my head from exploding ....
I found cards for some of the plants but I don't know what plant no.3 is, think no.4 could be a Spiraea.
No idea what plant numbers 5 and 8 are either - plant 8 looks like it's about to flower - it seems quite happy under the shade of the Ceanothus.
I planted a Ceanothus not realising how big it would grow - it is MASSIVE and I have no idea if it should be trimmed or how to do it. I think that's a 'Silver Queen) underneath that seems to be leaning and I'm wondering if this is because it wants more light, should I trim that side of the Ceanothus? (see last photo).
Any advice for any of them would be so much appreciated ...
