Hi mel 

Can you post a picture of the plant for us please - the whole plant and also close ups of leaves and flowers.

To upload a photo from a pc you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions.  Afraid it doesn't work for phones - yet.

Also known as Ice Plant and much loved by butterflies  

They strike easily from cuttings so you can soon have many more

Good morning ChrissieB   Slow progress possibly ........ but building up to a crescendo   The hare and the tortoise come to mind - that's what I'm telling my runner beans anyway.  

For some reason my yellow courgettes were in my dreams but I can't remember what they were doing

Good morning all 

Another glorious day here in sunny Norfolk - heading south later on to meet up with daughter for a picnic - don't know if son in law will be coming along - apart from his day job he's a DJ on local radio so has programmes to prepare - anyone into House music???

Woody - I luuuuuuuurve Gregory Porter - a wonderful voice!!!  And the interviews I've heard with him reveal a sparky and intelligent personality with a dry wit - have a lovely time   He always wears a hat a bit like a flying helmet 

Panda, you're probably too young to recognise it, but the ringtone on my mobile is Champion the Wonder Horse!!! 

Cherry Laurel Yellow Leaves

I think that they'll be fine - although they're pot grown they've had a change of environment - they're looking pretty good to me.  Don't over water them - a good soaking once a week or twice a week in hot dry spells should be fine. this time next year you'll have a lovely hedge 

HELLO FORKERS!

There will probably have been seeds just waiting to spring up and they will have loved the fact that you cleared a patch of ground for them.  You'll have to have another go, and probably another ..........

Lots of information/descriptions of various cherry varieties here

Also a highly recommended supplier of fruit trees.  I've been very happy with my purchases and I know others who are also very pleased.
