Not everyone has your level of IT capability Mike ... And most of us understand and have tolerance and patience with all sorts of non-conformity. 


Perhaps your urge to keep things tidy comes from working in parks etc, or your need to police boundaries comes from other employment experience. 


I have a more relaxed attitude and am happy to try to help wherever the questions may be posed. 


The last thing I want to do is put new people off asking questions when they may already be feeling a little uncertain. 


A welcoming smile is far better than a bossy 'you've done it wrong' attitude

What beans are these?

Those are the flowers and seed pods (and leaves) of a brassica ... Probably your red Brussels sprouts. 

Fig tree

Are you watering it enough ?  My container grown fig needs a bucket full of water every other day from spring onwards. although they need free draining compost they still need lots of water. They are very thirsty plants. 

Identity please

Report him to your version of Trading Standards immediately! 

twisted hazel

Posted: 12/06/2017 at 07:02

Because the twisted hazel grows slowly it is often outgrown by faster growing suckers from below the graft. 


Check the straight stems down their length and if they're coming from below the graft remove them  at their bases. You should be left with just the curly stems.


In future check regularly and rub out any shoots from below the graft before they begin to grow.

Good morning all.   Today is bright and dry so far ...

Help!

Just an idea, but what about contacting your local Wildlife Trust


 http://www.cornwallwildlifetrust.org.uk/who-we-are/contact-us 


It being Cornwall, with a milder climate than most of the UK, there may be something that's made itself at home there which doesn't grow as well if at all in the rest of the country.


P.S.  Very envious of your cottage in Cornwall, even with rampant unknown plants ... we'll be down your way later in the year as usual
