Hi,

Can anyone help me identify the three plants/shrubs in the pics.

Also, anyone any advice on controlling them.
Then pink and yellow guys are in a very large planted area amongst various trees like hawthorn, Scots pine, mountain ash and crab apple. But they are getting very big. I also have dogwood in there, but in January I cut them down to about 1 foot high to keep them a nice size come summertime.

The third shrub is starting to pop up in other beds in the garden and I may move some of them back to the largest area when the time is correct.

Thanks all,
Brian.

From what I can see ( craning my neck sideways ! ) the yellow one is Forsythia, the pink one possibly a Ribes or flowering currant ( not too sure about that as I've never seen one so vividly coloured ) and the top one seems very like an Amelanchier.....lucky you...one of my favourite small trees.

Thanks for the reply,

Sorry about the rotation, they are correct on my photobucket account but wrong when I link them?

I'll re-create the link and see if that works.
