Unknown Plant

Sisyrinchium striatum.

A cutting form our Hawthorn tree?

Sadly Hawthorns do not generally grow from cuttings. You would need to graft a piece of the one you have onto a normal Hawthorn rootstock. I would think that the one you have is a grafted plant.

They do not normally need pruning, but if you do have to remove pieces then once the flowering is over is the best time.

Plant ID please

And an absolute thug as far as seeding itself all over the place.

If it is Pyracantha, the berries are very popular with the feathereds. Orange and yellow ones go later than red ones, we find.

Middle one is an Oxalis, possibly Oxalis acetosella which is a native one, spreads a lot.

Yes, probably Santolina virens 'Lemon Fizz'

Flame throwers

The gas type flame guns are very effective, but only really useful on hard surfaces or where there are no desirable plants. I use ours on  weeds which seed around as the heat kills off the seeds even if the plant survives.

You really need to go over them twice too. Day one dries out the tops and then Day 2  burns o f the dried remains. They do kill off Dandelions though.

Never managed to set fire to anything except the incinerator with mine.

What is this plant please??

Or it could be S. graminifolia, very similar to S. columbiana.
