Talkback: How to winter-prune trees and shrubs

Posted: 15/12/2014 at 07:46

Leave it until the spring then remove old blooms, cutting back to a pair of fat buds.  If the plant is congested then take out some of the older canes from the base.

They also strike really easily from cuttings.  I've produced several for family members.  I usually plant three to a pot and that produces a balanced all-around effect.  https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=840

Good morning all   A bit warmer this morning - it's already 5.4C and only dropped to 1.4C overnight so no frost. 

Today mainly involves presents, paper and sellotape  

Plant ID please.

Hi Jack

The main difference is the different coloured berries - have a look at this site - it has some good ones http://www.burncoose.co.uk/site/plants.cfm?pl_id=3520

A great wildlife shrub

Looks like pyracantha to me - the berries come straight after the flowers but usually colour up towards the autumn - sometimes the birds get them first - I've seen pigeons taking the unripe berries in midsummer.

Are you sure it wasn't evergreen?

I remember the bread strike - the village shop rationed it and dear Mrs S couldn't believe I didn't want any - she'd not noticed that I never bought any

Our usual family bread was made with two thirds stoneground wholemeal and one third white and I used a little black molasses to help the yeast along - it made lovely bread.
