I don't think they like it indoors Jools, they are pretty hardy.  Your flowers look like they are drooping because they are too warm.

Squirrel proof magnolia?

Try the grazers spray - it works on keeping the deer off my magnolia flowers.  Its effective against rabbits as well, so don't see why it wouldn't work with squirrels too.  Apparently it makes things taste yuccky

Sorry, can't help on the identity of the tree Pat.

Nice sunny morning starting here - and looks like a dry weekend too.  Thats good, as I have a long list of gardening jobs to do . One more day of mining to get out of the way first though

Morning Clari, Morning Dove, Morning John Boy, and all those yet to arrive

Really enjoying all the spring blooms at the moment .....although those in my own garden have yet to get into their stride.  But the magnolia and camellia buds are beginning to show their colours, so maybe not much longer.

Vine weevils   Nematodes worked for us in our last garden, but have only had the problem once in pots here .....primulas were the casualties then too.
