Christmas cactus

By the way, they don't like to be moved when flowering. It makes the buds drop off. I turned that one round for the photo, the sunny side flowers better and grows better. I turn it round when it has finished flowering to encourage the other side to grow. Before I did that it went lopsided.

Mine is in a stand from IKEA in front of an unused glass door in full sun. I read not to put it in direct sunlight but that is what it seems to like best. It has grown so big that I can't get it out of the framework of the stand so no more re-potting. I feed it with little fertiliser sticks and water it when I remember. It's having it's second flowering now. Here it is a year or two ago. Son gave it to me years ago when he was a child, he's now 31. Have taken cuttings over the years but they weren't in the sun, they all died eventually or I gave them away.

Well done Wonky. My OH worked with computers for years, but when he doesn't know what to do he always asks Google!

ID this plant please

Sorry, when I clicked on your pic to enlarge it it didn't enlarge but the leaves went shinier. There is nothing else in the photo to compare with for size, it's obviously smaller than I thought. It somehow looks familiar, but my mind has gone blank!

ID this plant please

It could be cherry laurel. Grows quite large with glossy green leaves. Often grown for hedging.

Why doesn't my blackthorn produce sloes?

Blackthorn has blossom quite early. Are your Scottish bees ready to fertilise it?
