Purple Tree?

I've just looked at that link from the RHS and seen it's group one, light or no pruning. I have an old one which had got very straggly so I researched it and found they can be pruned hard, so I cut mine in half! It's done much better since.

That's a cotinus coggygria. https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/details?plantid=559  When they are pruned they make lovely fresh new growth and they can be pruned quite hard.

Progress so far

Morning all.

Loads of tulips to plant. My children gave me lots for my birthday. We had the rain that DD had too. Poured in the evening. But the forecast for the week is now better than it was.

But must muck out horse shelter before next hay delivery , aching shoulder coming up!

Have watched it all now. The right person went and I hope the other right person goes next week.

Sounds most like lime to me, but I'd chuck it. I've bought it like that for growing brassicas, then found soil here is alkaline.

Had good lunch with son. His baby is teething and only wants his Mummy, so not very cuddly today.

On the way home we visited friend in hospital who is a lot better.

Off to watch last night's Strictly. Didn't see it last night as we were at the cinema to see the opera "Carmen", live from the New York Met. Super.

Empty Space??
