No Alan - Id welcome a PM from a neighbour! I'll have a look and see what's up

alternatively perhaps a Forker who has my email address would be kind enough to pass it to you

Are these damsons or sloes please?

The fruit of buckthorn is a small fleshy berry with a seed inside, not a 'stone fruit' or drupe like members of the prunus family, e.g. sloe, damson, plum etc

Good morning all and thanks for kind wishes - it's the frustration that's the worst - but I expect you've guessed that

Really looking forward to a garden visit at the weekend - Snoodle is going to come and pick me up

Td immunisations...

Last time I asked when my booster was due the nurse told me I didn't need any more as I'd have built up enough immunity by now - I think I'll speak to the GP about it when I go for my next checkup in a couple of months.

What's wrong with my tree

It really doesn't sound very happy.  Has it had any proper leaves at all this summer?  If not I would presume it's dead.

Not sure what fruit Cangrandmafixit is thinking of - but the fruit in the photos in this thread is not poisonous.    As I've said, it looks to me like wild damson.

Sloes grow on blackthorn bushes, the thorns can cause nasty puncture wounds which can turn septic - Pa used to suffer when hedging on the farm.
