Plant Indentification

Posted: 04/02/2014 at 23:06

I have enlarged to photo but can't spot the flowers you spoke of. I think you may have to post another picture when the leaves appear to get an identification. Meanwhile I would take Nutcutlet's advice and take out some of the older stems to open up the centre of the bush a bit.

"When it rains, look for rainbows

When it's dark, look for stars"

I heard a parent say this on Children in Need and it really touched me.

I'm in Essex and did mine today. The top growth had started sprouting already so I cut back and mulched it to help protect the base of the plant/new growth.

Looks great - very professional! At 100kg very permanent too, how do you intend to use it after germination in spring?

Shrub identification please

The shape and number of the leaves made me think of a  Cornus. Any evergreen ones?

Good one Fairy girl!!

I did tick the hibernating animals one but my hedgehogs have not hibernated!! I still see and feed them every evening - I think it just hasn't been cold enough for a long enough period of time.
