You will note that some of these paving slabs are broken. Some of the 1 million visitors to this garden may walk on these broken slabs which have been laid directly on the ground with no foundation or any other preparation below them. That means as you lean forward to gaze at this trial, the slab is likely to tip and send you into the trial. There are visitors in wheelchairs who will experience difficulty and either them or their companions pushing them are likely to get hurt by these broken slabs. If it has recently rained, then the edge adjacent to the trial could dip and sent them over the side. Knowing that the RHS is short of maintenance money having only millions of pounds of profit, then perhaps a few less members would not matter so much.

In April 2014 the tulip bulbs planted in these trials beds will be in flower and the RHS wish to find out from the public what they think of them.

The unfortunate aspect of this trial is that the tulips grow and hide both their number and name identity labels, SO A COMPLETE AND UTTER WASTE OF TIME, SINCE THE DESIGNER NEVER EVER BOTHERED TO LOOK AT THE FINAL RESULT AND SEE THAT THE VISITOR COULD NOT IDENTIFY EACH TULIP SQUARE.

Problem 4 - These Rhododendrons have labels but where is the rest of their name?
IMG 2491.JPG
taken on 30 November 2013

x12IMG2491indexmissingpartsoflabelgarnonswilliams

This rhododendron has obviously been here for years. It has an identity which is
probably within the database of the plants within the library of Wisley, which
members can view. I did that with a plant in the Mixed Borders. The entry was
not all that helpful in stating that the plant was in the Mixed Borders, which
are two of 600 x 12700 cms in size.

Problem 4
I wonder if the RHS has recently spent as much money on creating a similar system as the one below as it has spent on relocating the plant centre, welcome entry area, cafe and gift shop at Wisley.


Now if we look at Missouri Botanical Garden, they have an ideal system for the
student to identify and locate the plant in their garden with its record giving cultivation etc details unlike the RHS:-

"Plant Records at Missouri Botanical Garden are maintained in a custom web-based SQL database. This comprehensive Living Collections Management System (LCMS) is fully integrated with the Garden’s Tropicos database and our mapping data in ESRI’s ArcGIS software.
Each plant in the living collection is labeled with an identification tag that is embossed with its accession number, botanical name, and collector name and number, if applicable. In addition to the embossed tags, many of the plants in the Garden have plant identification labels that provide common and scientific names, native ranges, and the botanical plant family to which the plant belongs. There are also many interpretive signs throughout the Garden to further educate visitors.
We encourage the use of our plant collections for scientific research.
Plant Identification Labels
The plant identification label is the most basic educational unit in our Garden. The labels displayed at the Missouri Botanical Garden use both common and botanical nomenclature to identify plants. The label is the standard size (2.875" x 5") and format used throughout most of the Garden.
Mapping
The Plant Records Department at the Missouri Botanical Garden maps many of the features in the Garden, including the paths, water features, buildings, planting beds, and of course, plants. This is accomplished through the use of Geographic Information Systems, or GIS, technology.

The Plant Records Department uses GIS software products by ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute) to manage our geographic data. A high resolution orthophotograph (4-inch resolution) is used as the base of the GIS. ESRI's ArcMap software is used to build layers on top of this orthophoto. Features in the Garden such as paths, buildings, and water features are simply "drawn" on top of the orthophoto using  and ArcMap's drawing tools.

Plant are mapped within MBG’s Living Collections Management System (LCMS), using tools developed in-house that utilize the Javascript API for ArcGIS, ArcGIS map services, and custom update queries. Once a plant record is retrieved in the LCMS, it can be inventoried and mapped by simply clicking or tapping on a map where the plant is located. Since the LCMS is web-based, this can be accomplished from a desktop PC, but also any internet connected device such as a smartphone or tablet. If using a GPS-enabled mobile device out in the Garden, head’s up digitizing can be facilitated using the device’s location marker on the map. Alternatively, GPS coordinates can be entered. This setup allows for SQL data in both the LCMS and the geodatabase to stay in perfect sync."

See Acer davidii and this is part of its Gardening Information record from A living
collections management system of Missouri Botanical Garden:-

"Culture
Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part
shade. Prefers part shade, particularly in hot summer climates. Also prefers acidic
soils that are kept consistently moist. Best performance occurs in cool summer
climates such as the Pacific Northwest. Plants do not perform well in the heat and
humidity of the deep South.

Noteworthy
Acer davidii commonly called snakebark maple or Pere David's maple is a deciduous,
somewhat variable, small to medium sized, understory tree that is native to mixed
forest areas of central China. It is perhaps best noted for its snake-like bark,
unlobed leaves and attractive autumn leaf color. It is part of the Macrantha
taxonomic section of maples which consists of trees commonly called stripe bark
maple or snake bark maple in reference to their distinctive bark. It is an upright,
often multi-trunked tree with arching branches that grows to 30-50’ tall. Smooth,
olive green bark is streaked with green and white. Ovate, unlobed (occasionally
shallow-lobed), opposite, dark green leaves (3-6" long) have serrulate or doubly
serrate margins. Small, inconspicuous, yellowish flowers bloom in pendant racemes
(2-3" long) in spring. Flowers give way to small but abundant winged samaras which
mature in fall. Excellent yellow to orange to red fall color. This species was discovered
in China in 1869 by Jean Pierre Armand David (1826-1900), Jesuit missionary.
Macrantha section contains 18 different species of maple, including A. capillipes and
A. pensylvanicum.

Genus name is the Latin name for a maple tree.

Specific epithet honors Jean Pierre Armand David (1826-1900).

Problems
Potential disease problems include verticillium wilt, leaf spots, tar spot, canker
and root rots. Potential insect problems include aphids, scale, borers and caterpillars.
Mites may appear.

Garden uses
Uncommonly found in cultivation. Attractive small tree or large shrub for the landscape."

The normal system in Britain with its gardens open to the public is to keep the ground weeded and bare between the plants. Sometimes the RHS have been rash and over some areas have applied an organic mulch. In this case the man with his hoover has not collected these fallen during the autumn deciduous leaves and put them to rot and waste their resouces in a compost bin. The liquid in the bin drains under the bin and is therefore not used by the plants who are going to receive the created compost. That Is why I shred in a chipper/shredder or rotary mowing machine and apply the cuttings immediately to the areas that require it. This means that they can be taken into the soil by the worms etc to replace the humus which is continually being lost in the soil. The humus provides the Organic Polymers to bind the quartz grains, clay domains and bacterium together to make soil as shown in the Soil Formation What is Soil Structure diagram. Unfortunately we in Britain have become so divorced from the soil, that we do not realise that to feed the plant we have to feed and keep the soil with its structure intact. How else do you feed the bacterium, worms and other organisms within the fast-food restaurant that the topsoil contains?

"Rhododendron /ˌroʊdəˈdɛndrən/ (from Ancient Greek ῥόδον rhódon "rose" and δένδρον déndron "tree") is a genus of 1,024 species of woody plants in the heath family (Ericaceae), either evergreen or deciduous, and found mainly in Asia, although it is also widespread throughout the highlands of the Appalachian Mountains of North America. It is the national flower of Nepal as well as the state flower of West Virginia and Washington in United States, and state tree of Sikkim and Uttarakhand in India. Most species have brightly colored flowers which bloom from late winter through to early summer.

Azaleas make up two subgenera of Rhododendron. They are distinguished from "true" rhododendrons by having only five anthers per flower." from Wikipedia

As a bear with a very small brain, I understand that there is a difference between
Rhododendron and Azalea plants, so I am unhappy to see both labels on this plant
as well it having no varietal name.

Problem 6 - 102 plants were missing their identity when in flower in 2013
out of 348 (29.31% of the plants) in 768 square metres of Mixed Borders garden
beds of the RHS Garden at Wisley.

x13IMG1975indexprobleminreadinglabelgarnonswilliams

The missing Aconitum is the other side of this support structure and so these blue aconitum flowers will never be seen by the visitors, but will by the staff who maintain these beds from the back.

Problem 7 - Problem in reading Plant labels
xxx hidden plant name
IMG 8262.JPG
taken on 12 September 2013

74

x13IMG8262indexprobleminreadinglabelgarnonswilliams

This plant is at your hip height and the label is less than 12 inches (30 cms) from you in the Alpine House. Can you read this plant label? No; nor can anybody else. This plant has been tended by the staff over the last 12 months and plunged in this sand when it started to flower. It will be returned to the greenhouses alongside when it has finished flowering, perhaps to come back again next year.

Problem 7 - Problem in reading Plant labels

IMG 8154.JPG

Good of the staff to hide the plant name given on the label behind the one facing you.

arenaria acerosxxxx with incomplete vertical label

Kind of the staff not to replace the white label with the black and white one normally created to identify plants in RHS gardens and link them to the plant database.

Problem 7 - Problem in reading Plant labels
empodium xxx part of label hidden
IMG 8365.JPG
taken on 2 November 2013

79

x13IMG8365indexprobleminreadinglabelgarnonswilliams

Kind of the staff to push the plant label too far into the pot, thus obliterating part of the plant name.

WHY DO THE STAFF WHO RUN THE ALPINE HOUSE NOT DISPLAY THE PLANT LABELS SO THAT THE VISITOR CAN SEE THEM?

Problem 8 - Is it children of visitors who move plant labels in the Heather beds
of 1000 heather varieties? In 3 years of taking 15,000 photos between my
colleague Kavanagh and myself, we only managed to photograph 848 varieties.

This label is so old that it has lichen growing on it, which the maintenance staff
have so far not cleaned off.

Do you know that the colour of the flowers in this photo may not be white,
or is my failing tunnel-vision eyesight (glaucoma in both eyes - as from March 2020)
informing me incorrectly?


See further Heather labelling problems in Plant Labelling within

SO WITHIN 2 YEARS, SOMEBODY HAS TAKEN UP THE LABEL, CLEANED IT OFF
AND PLACED IT ELSEWHERE, THUS DESTROYING THE VALIDITY OF THE LABELLING
OF THE 1000'S OF HEATHER PLANTS IN THIS COLLECTION AND CAUSING ME
TO THROW OUT ALL THE WORK CARRIED OUT BY HEATHER AND MYSELF
OVER EACH OF THE 4 SEASONS - SPRING, SUMMER, AUTUMN AND WINTER - TO
PHOTOGRAGH EACH GROUP ON EVERY HEATHER BED IN THIS COLLECTION.
THIS WAS TO SHOW THE CHANGE IN FOLIAGE COLOUR, THE FLOWER COLOUR,
SEED COLOUR AND FORM OF THESE HEATHERS TO MAKE CHOOSING ONE OR
MORE OF THEM BY THE PUBLIC EASIER.
HEATHER AND 1 DO LOVE WASTING OUR TIME AND MONEY.

Problem 9 - Rose Plant Label in Rose Garden of RHS Wisley is Trade Name (Retail Name),
with no explanation.

If you Google Rosa Wisley 2008, you get the following from the RHS on 22 March 2020:-
Rosa Wisley 2008 = 'Ausbreeze' (PBR) (S)

This WISLEY WISLEY Rose Plant Classification System as created by the RHS is now explained in this section.

HOW TO CONFUSE THE VISITOR TO THE GARDEN WITH THIS DOUBLE NAME ON A LABEL WITH NO EXPLAINATION.

What are garden 'thug' plants?

 

Invasive plants are those that can quickly get out of hand in the garden, even though they are not regarded as weeds and are commonly sold in garden centres.

Think carefully about introducing these plants to your garden, and be prepared to carry out judicious pruning and digging or thinning out as required.

Examples of such plants include:

Trees and shrubs

  • Cherry laurel (Prunus laurocerasus)
  • False acacia (Robinia pseudoacacia)
  • Kerria japonica
  • Leyland cypress (× Cuprocyparis leylandii)
  • Poplars (Populus spp.)
  • Sumach (Rhus typhina)

Climbers

  • Passion flower (Passiflora caerulea)
  • Russian vine (Fallopia baldschuanica)

Bamboos, sedges, reeds and grasses

  • Sasa palmata (see our bamboo profile for a fuller list of invasive bamboos)
  • Phalaris arundinacea
  • Phragmites australis
  • Weeping sedge (Carex pendula)

Herbaceous perennials

  • Japanese anemone (Anemone × hybrida cultivars)
  • Golden rod (Solidago canadensis)
  • Houttuynia cordata ‘Chameleon’
  • Macleaya spp.
  • Yellow loosestrife (Lysimachia punctata)

Crevice plants

  • Mind-your-own-business (Soleirolia soleirolii)

Edible crops

  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • Horseradish
  • Mint

Ground cover plants

  • Euphorbia cyparissias
  • Hypericum calycinum
  • Leptinella squalida
  • Periwinkle (Vinca major and V. minor)
  • Pratia pedunculata
  • Rubus biflorus
  • Snowberry (Symphoricarpos albus)
  • Yellow archangel (Lamium galeobdolon) 

Bulbous plants

  • Lesser celandine (Ranunculus ficaria) cultivars
  • Oxalis culitvars
  • Allium paradoxum and A. triquetrum

Pond plants

There are a number of aquatic plants that can easily get out of hand in a garden pond and are considered true weeds. Ideally these should never be introduced to the pond, though they sometimes come unwittingly with other pond plants.

Garden Thug Plants continued:-
The problems

Trees like the Leyland cypress and climbers such as Russian vine can grow so quickly that they are soon much too big for the garden.

Trees such as poplar and sumach have a tendency to sucker, sending up shoots all over the garden and even in neighbours’ properties.

Many ground cover shrubs like the snowberry or Hypericum calycinum spread via underground stems (rhizomes), sending up new plants and gradually taking over the border. Some bamboos also behave in this way, becoming a constant source of regret for the gardener.

Potentially invasive herbaceous plants and grasses, such as Japanese anemones and Phalaris arundinacea, form ever-enlarging clumps that require frequent division. Others, such as golden rod or weeping sedge also spread by seed, with seedlings popping-up in unexpected places where they are not wanted.

Bulbous plants such as Oxalis can produce tiny new bulbs, or offsets, which are scattered every time a clump is dug up, spreading the problem rather than controlling it.

 

Control

Digging out unwanted plants may work for a while, but is only likely to be a temporary solution. Judicious use of weedkillers may be necessary.

For herbaceous weeds, try a programme of spraying using a systemic herbicide containing glyphosate – Roundup and Tumbleweed are common brand names of such products. For woodier plants, choose a stump or brushwood killer such as ‘Bramble Killer Ultra’ or ‘Deep Root Ultra Tree Stump & Weedkiller’.

Beware putting invasive plants on the domestic compost heap, as this is unlikely to reach a high enough temperature to kill off tough roots or underground stems (it is all right if they have already been killed off with weedkiller). Instead, place them in the municipal green waste, as this is composted on an industrial scale, where tough weeds should be killed off. Burning may also be appropriate, but check your local Council guidelines.
