If you want a longer flowering, spectacular one then look out for G. Blazing Sunset. Buds are yellow, then open to yellow and red and finally go red and it flowers on and off all Summer.

does anyone know what this is?

Ours flower from about the middle of May until the middle of June in a normal season. The ones in shade last a bit longer than the ones in full sun. I leave the heads on as they are quite decorative, but then you do get self seeded ones around and they are not always as good as the original, but still nice.

If you do cut out the old flowering stems, then you may get another flush of flowers later on in the season.

What's this?

The flowers are tiny things nestled right down in the green bracts at the top of the stems.

Can anyone identify this tree please?

Looks like one of the many Willows.

Cox's also need a lot more heat than other apples and this year has been a disadster for them.

Anyone used this mower

Posted: 14/06/2012 at 13:22

We are looking at buying a new mower. The one we most like the look of is a Honda HRX 476 HY and we wondered if anyone had used one? Grateful for any info. TIA.

Clematis from seed?

Posted: 12/06/2012 at 10:17

Just remember that fresh seed germinates far better than stored. Also it is esy to tell viable seed from non-viable. The fatter and plumper the seed, the more likely it is to be alive.

Hybrids do not come true, but species will and you never know you may get something nice. One of my alpine seedlings has turned out to be a rather nice pale pink double flowered version.

This woodpecker was feeding the baby (nearly as big as here too).
