Beautiful colours, Wintersong (love that name) and Artjak.

Can anybody identify these?

Wild cherries here are very sweet (when properly ripe), but not much flesh for a big stone. But I agree with Fairygirl - beech or hornbeam for the 2nd one.

Problem with Bluebells

How strange, are there any others nearby? English ones are slimmer with drooping heads and longer slimmer bells. Spanish are more upright, pretty, but can be thugs. Do you know anyone who wants them? If you don't, then just dig them out and chuck them - but not on the compost heap!

I sent a post which isn't there now, perhaps I forgot submit reply.

I just wanted to say I have a Bowl of Beauty and I love it and I love it's name as well.

Pruning was a good one from Verdun. I forgot it doesn't have to be just plants. So what about "potting up" or "potting on". Or just pottering about in the garden!

Make do and mend

I made staging for the GH from a really cheap special offer shelving unit from a French supermarket. The extra staging for baby plants in the spring is cheap planks of wood on cheap metal trestles that I take down when the plants go in the cold frames to make room to plant the tomatoes. The cold frames are made from cheap building blocks with air holes in them, lined with polystyrene.

Lovely baby, Blackest. I have 6 grandchildren and youngest son hasn't started yet!

Raining this morning in sunny (?) Dordogne, so we went to the market in Périgueux then did the weekly supermarket shop, bought a parasol (haha) for the garden and had lunch at the Chinese. You can guess, we are retired!

Greenhouse query

I have all those plants outside at the moment, out all year long. But, as Verdun says, the little ones need potting on first.

Please help me identify this really invasive plant!! And how the spread
