Unidentified Plant

Yes, I agree with Nutcutlet  it's Filipendual vulgaris aka Dropwort  - a wild plant, but a pretty one. 

horrible little fox

We see foxes most times we look out of the bedroom window between midnight and sunup. Sometimes they wake us with their noisy barking. They're nothing to worry about unless you keep poultry or small furry animals as pets in your garden.

Sadly I've found that the better the beer the more slugs you get - they love Adnams Broadside 

2 Qs - plant ID and how to prune it

Posted: 26/07/2016 at 21:32

yes phormium. Looks great to me. Just remove any obviously dead leaves from the base. Remove the little green weeds at its base and give it a generous layer of mulch of soil conditioner or small bark chippings all around it. It will look very much tidier and the colour wi look brighter and your friend wi think you're brilliant

I'd repot them in pots a bit bigger - I'd use a mix of 3 parts John Innes No 3 loam-based compost and one part good quality multi-purpose compost. Check that the stake ties aren't too tight - the trunk needs room to expand. 


When you pot them up leave a space of 4" from the top of the compost and the rim of the pot so that when you water you can fill this up, let it soak in and drain away.


And also do everything Pansyface hassuggested. 


And give each tree a bucket full of water twice a week in this weather, more if the compost dried out. 

Autumn/Winter veggie advice please

I see your tree is planted in a pot. what sort of compost is it in and how much water has it had, particularly of late?


It looks as if the tree didn't shed much fruit in the June Drop. I'd be tempted to remove 50% of the fruit you have there - removing the smaller ones and leaving the larger ones, ensuring that they have the space to swell.
