Thank you Runny - good to see you

What is this berry shrub?

It sounds as if it might be a skimmia growing in the wrong conditions which are turning it's its leaves yellow ... has anyone else got any other ideas?

Plant id help please

Dove is correct. If you look for the wrong name in a reference book you might not find the correct plant. However, Google is clever enough to guess what you really mean.

Google's not always right about what I mean ... it has come up with some surprising results in the past

Don't think Alan was being pedantic - it's just that if the poster wanted to find out more about the plant they'd need to put the right spelling into Google

Spelling mistakes and typos happen to all of us - especially early in the morning and not enough caffeine taken on board

I usually do mine while I listen to the Archers on a Sunday morning - that seems to be the best time - however there are always fewer birds on the day I do it than there were the week before and the week after - and if the wind doesn't drop it'll be too windy for them to land anywhere!!!

Oh heck Dove .................... but how would they know they were yours 

It's not just J-Lo who has a remarkably recognisable 'booty'

I just walked down to the post box to post some envelopes - the wind cuts right through you - the sort that gives you a pain behind your eyes

Coffee anyone?

It's all very well for you lot up there with roofs and tiles and greenhouses suffering in the storm ......................... there's serious stuff going on here in East Anglia ................. I just found a pair of my unmentionables blowing across the back lawn .......... they must've blown off the line yesterday, but where were they when I got the washing in yesterday afternoon - could a neighbour have found them and popped them back over the fence do you think

Can a Rose Bush live in semi shade?

It may not be ideal but roses are surprisingly tough - it sounds as if it'll be fine. 

Enjoy that baby and if you have any more gardening questions don't hesitate to ask

Wonky - just keep your head out of the way of any flying roof tiles when you're going for that bus
