And of course the berries on Cornus mas are edible, a bit tasteless though.

Been a good year so far for Hazel catkins. If you look closely at the branches, just behind the catkins you may see tiny red flowers. With any luck, there will be a good crop of nuts for you. Joybell.

Living in Inverness,one would expect her to be a member of the Scottish Rock Garden Society. There are local groups which are definitely worth investigating.

And you really do not need any fertiliser in that mix.

Better if you wrapped the roots in damp newspaper, if you cannot pot them up. No plant likes its roots drying out. Or put the roots in plastic bags and then cover so the roots are in the dark.

Better than having to go into the house, remove hat, coat, scarf, gloves and boots to get a camera.


 Did it for this Saxifrage, only because the label has faded and I want to know which one it is.

When fully ripe, the berries look like purple grapes. Hence its name Oregon grape. They are actually edible if a bit insipid. Removal of seed would be like taking the pips out of grapes.

Yellow magnolia??

It does keep its colour better than some of the others. Ours is as I  said, only a small tree, but it has had up to 5 flowers on it each season since we bought it. More buds this year as it has grown a little.

PS WE bought it because when I counted the Magnolias in the garden I found 13 of them. After we planted it i found another one which I had missed so now we have 15 of them.
