Plant/shrub/tree identification help?

Yes, can you show us a picture when it gets some leaves?  We're much more likely to get it right with that information.

Problems using the website

I find it ok on the laptop, but it can grind exceeding slow on the iphone from time to time.

I have a sneaking feeling that we had them with strawberry jam and sugar, when I was a child.....but I could be wrong.  That might have been left-over Yorkshire pudding.....

See original post

 I was telling OH about leftover Yorkshire pudding on Sunday - we used to have ours warmed up with golden syrup, or sometimes with butter and brown sugar - that was wonderful - you've never lived if you've not had left-over Yorkshire pudding served like that ... mind you, Ma had to cook an extra big one to make sure there was enough for two meals

BL - the antiques places in Norwich are expensive - far better to go to some of the regular antique auction houses in the area - several of them feature on Flog it etc - There's a very good one at Diss which is often on the programmes

another at Campsea Ashe near Woodbridge  and another at Aylsham

A bit of sunshine and showers here today.  We're off to an exhibition in a few minutes - OH mentioned lunch out - we may be gone some time ...............

Planting potatoes now?

Posted: 28/02/2017 at 09:02

I wouldn't plant potatoes until late March/early April unless you live in the far southwest of the UK. 

You could cover the beds with black plastic now to help the soil warm up so the spuds get away quickly when you do plant them. 

Misting a cordyline

I'm not in Australia so am not sure, but I think daily misting might be a bit much. 

What do others think?

Sounds good to us Hosta 

Itll be interesting to watch the bees - they're fascinating

Is that Nutella MU? Apparently it's full of palm oil - destroying rain forests and increasing health problems - revolting stuff

I'd happily have hives on my land if I had the space. It depends what the beekeeper is looking for - is he/she wanting the bees to be close to the moorland for heather honey, or orchards for blossom? Or just general flowers for a mixed honey.  Farmers sometimes pay beekeepers to place their hives on their farm to ensure that their crops such as oilseed rape are well pollinated. Of course, we then come to the neonic question 

I would respond to the ad and see if what you've got is what they want.
