Plant ID help

Yes pyracantha can take heavy pruning.  The berries are loved by birds so I would leave until they have had their fill.  As they flower on 2 year old growth you will also loose next years flowers.  I have cut one down to ground level in the past and it still came back with a vengeance. They are tough plants!

It looks like clematis montana. It will have scented flowers in the spring. 

House plant ID please

Yes I agree with Ceres.  I have a pale pink one which hasn't flowered for years.  Seeing yours I must make more of an effort to look after it. (Repot, feed and generally TAKE NOTICE) 😊

Hello everybody.  Am making list of comments.  Its nice to get so much info.  Have looked at some models and they can be quite expensive so don't want to make a mistake buying the wrong product.  Many thanks.

Thanks everyone.  As you all seem happy with Karcher will do a bit of research to see which one will suit.  Hubby has B&Q card so  might be worth a look there.  Am fed up scrubbing paths with yard broom its HARD WORK!!

Thanks again.  Have a good afternoon.

Am thinking of buying a jet washer to wash slippery paths and driveway.  Has anyone any experience or advice on the best make etc.

Hello leeph

From your description I think they might be springtails.  Have found them in my garden, there seem to be more than usual this year.  They like damp places and feed on decaying matter and fungi so don't think they will harm plants.  I would'nt like them indoors though so maybe you should repot your plants.  Hope this helps!

Yes me! I won two tickets to BBC Gardeners World Live .  Enter competitions all the time never win so was so supprised.  Had a lovely day.  Also a dozen foxgloves arrived, never ordered them so assume I entered a comp. that I had forgotten about!
