What is this ornamental tree please?

Posted: 31/12/2013 at 17:05

The fruits of sorbus intermedia are a bit like rose hips and smaller than crab apples. I only have euros to compare, English money less familiar.

Is that a nut inside the fruit? If so, think again! And I don't know.

I have a rose bud and some pansies and violas. Do you count each viola flower or just the variety as one? Hellebores not ready yet.

Virginia Creeper

Think you're on the right track now! I have Virginia Creeper planted by a previous owner and I hate it. I have to pay someone to keep it under control or it gets onto the roof - too high for me to deal with. It seeds itself where I don't want it, like in my herbaceous borders, it's even in the veg garden. It ignores glyphosate, just goes red then grows back again! I pulled a load up and chucked it on the heap in my woodland and now it's romping off under the trees.

I have leeks and perpetual spinach in the garden, the rest of the veg is in the freezer. But on Christmas Day I bought the veg, needed enough for 16!

So sad when a loved animal dies. Hugs for them.

Pond Fabrication

My brother-in-law has a pond on his patio in bricks, but well lined. I think he built it himself. It's a bit like this one, but bigger, I think it's rather attractive.

Initial Seed Planting & Potting Up

Posted: 30/12/2013 at 17:39

Because the fast growing seedlings quickly absorb the nutrients in the compost and grow better when potted on. Also they may not all germinate which may waste all that compost you've put into a big pot.

Happy birthday Archiepem.

A lot of sugar in alcohol that the body turns into fat when it doesn't need the energy. But I know you winked KEF! Most nice things are illegal, immoral or they make you fat! Well, that's what my Dad used to say.

Oh, crossed with Nut, but we both think the same. Fruit can vary a lot from round to oval, red, orange to yellow and the end can be neat and apple like or messier and more star like as the one in the picture. It looks like an oldish, unpruned tree.
