Identity needed

A friend gave me one of thease many years ago, I love it . I grow it in pots, hanging baskets and straight in the ground. 

It roots very easily just cut a piece above a leaf node and put it into water for a few weeks and it will grow roots ready for potting up.

This is is a basket growing on not quite ready yet to put outside

I've looked at the roses suggested and the closes is James Galway, 

i cant answer all the questions asked by Morelena as I inherited the rose when I bought the house but it has got thorns and is about 8ft tall and 8ft wide and it has got a wonderful perfume.

thanks for the replies

I have white swan and it certainly looks the same as mine, slightly variegated leaf.

I think it's a euphorbia possible white swan.

5 fruits grafted on 1tree - Your opinion & advice??

Topbird if you have different fruiting times you are going to have different blossoming times, not so good for cross pollination . No cross pollination no fruit.

5 fruits grafted on 1tree - Your opinion & advice??

This kind of tree is usually called A Family Apple tree, useful if you only have a courtyard garden. The drawback that I know of is you damage any of the crafting points or any fail then you get a very odd looking tree. They also don't seem to fruit very well.

The family trees I think are something of a gimmic and not very productive.

If you have a limited space and want fruit trees why not consider growing them as cordons or espalier, much more pleasing to the eye and crop well.

I wonder if any of you fine forum members can help me, I'm trying to locate a Angel Pelagonium called The Kenn Lad.

I live in the parish of Kenn and have just found out about this pelargonium and I would realy  like some to be grown in the parish.

I know this is a long shot but I think I've exhausted all other avenues.

Ive got my fingers crossed 🤞

I don't think it's a very good idea, the Leylandi roots will have congested the ground around making it unusable and depleaned of goodness also not a good idea to leave the stumps and roots in it will become deceased and cause all sorts of problems.

i don't think it would look very good either.
