Panda - they're installing a defib. machine in Waitrose down in the village, so if I need one can you get the train up here, there's a bus from the station to the end of this road and it goes past Waitrose - I'm sure the driver will let you hop off and pick it up on your way here

I'm not at all sure about it Philippa, but the shape and texture of the leaves and the furry stems remind me of one that grows in a park up the road from our old home .......

 like this one - I remember seeing new shoots one spring and being surprised by how sturdy and furry they were - but whether they looked exactly like the new shoot in the OPs photo I can't remember - it was a long time ago .....................

Definitely an ash tree.   Unless they have a very big garden that they wish to turn into a shady woodland, they need to dig that out pretty soon.

Philippa - Vitis cognitae?

 

Needs a sunny spot to get good autumn colour.  Never tried it in a container.

Hi Frank - there was a malfunction on the forum over the weekend - it was possible to post if you changed your forum settings to Basic Editor rather than Advanced.  

We kept a post with details of how to do this at the top of the Latest Posts page in the hope that people would see it .... sadly you didn't but I'm glad you're back now

Kez - to post a pic you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where yo type your post, and follow the instructions to upload a photo from a pc.  Afraid it doesn't work for phones - yet
