I do that Nut

They look familiar but I can't put a name to them - I certainly wouldn't pull them out until you know what they are. 

Something keeps saying 'daisy' to me -   Shasta - something along those lines ........... but I'm probably wrong

Trees from Seeds.

Sounds a very 'unusual' set up to me Clari - which is why I suggested they get the best information available - there's very little that Kew doesn't know about seeds

We only get squirrels around here very rarely - usually around acorn time - but OH spotted one on the feeders this afternoon - when we go out he lurks at the top of the ash trees - we've brought the sunflower heart feeder in for a while - hopefully he'll give up and go away

Clari !!!!!!!! (hugs) and lots of 'em xx

Wonky - I might be able to find you a couple of large plastic pots if you can't find anything else for the time being - don't forget they won't like your hard Ipswich tap water either

We'll also have to find you some nice colourful shrubs that do like your soil

Unseen pest

If it was aminopyralid I don't see why the following new growth would be unaffected?  I'm more inclined to think it's some sort of insect.

Just had a big field mushroom baked with blue cheese for lunch - luscious!!! 

Now I shall continue to sort out the last bookcase - Wonky, make room for some gardening magazines and a few cookery books!!!  


I hope Kew will forgive me ......... see Tree Seeds thread
