Oh, this thread has made me smile and demonstrated why we use Latin name for plants!!
lol Lindyloo2! Both pieces of advice above are correct but they are for two different plants! I believe you have Ricinus communis aka Castor oil plant and therefore should take nutcutlet's advice. However if you have Fatsia japonica aka Castor oil plant then take Dovefromabove's advice.
Mild n wet all day in Essex. Really dark at just past 5....glad I don't have to go out! Still got bulbs to go in - hope we get a dry day as the soil will be easy to work to get the bulbs in.
How about Nandina domestica? evergreen, flowers, berries, leaves change colour, upright habit, AGM - various sizes/varieties - low maintenance, I love mine.
Hi, Kentish maid - are you based in Kent? I took a RHS Level 2 cert. in Essex through Capel Manor. I would ring Capel Manor and ask about career advice as they are a Horticultural College http://www.capel.ac.uk/
Congratulations! I have just moved my bird feeders closer to the house so I get a great view whilst staying warm. The birds are beginning to come back to the garden now it is getting colder. Good timing on your part - enjoy!

Did you see Monty's recommendations on Friday night? Glad I don't have to pick mine the way he does!!
