Would burn ours stuff, but I forgot to leave a space for a fire when I did the garden layout. Doh!
Not sure my machinery ability is good at the moment. The leaf blower will not work and I have had to buy a new chain saw as the old one has given up the ghost.
Close up those are flowers, rather than berries.
Post a picture is the easiest way.
Cannot find a picture of our Charles Lamont.............yet.
Viburnum x bodnantense Dawn
Depends on the type. H. niger should only have dead leaves removed. H. x hybridus is the one where all the old leaves are removed. I do ours in February though, as I like old leaves to protect the crown over winter.
Nutcutlet, the easiest way is to post a picture of the flowers.
That does look like Charles Lamont.
We have Lonicera fragrantissima and L Winter Beauty, both in flower now too.
Let's just give up gardening and wrap ourselves in cotton wool and sit on the couch and watch Donty Mon do it.
And don't get me started on Rose prunings!
Best of luck with seed. Sadly they do not do well from dried seed. To get really good results you need fresh seed sown straight from the plant. Find someone with Hellebores and beg a selection of seeds from them.
