Yvie - you can let your hubby look at your plant when it's growing beautifully in the garden - that's his Valentine's present


Well, fruit bushes and the vine have all been pruned, autumn raspberries cut down, perennials and miscanthus-type grasses cut back, a few environmentally friendly slug pellets scattered around the shady bit where the hostas live, some Creeping Buttercups pulled out of the border (they keep creeping through from NDN) and another robin-type bird box put up.  I've had a much needed shower and there's been an attempt at an improvement to my 'manicure' and now I'm going to prep our supper ... see you in a bit ...

Forum names

Maybe some will come back - we all seem to be coping with the forum as it is now - there are blips and so on, but then there always were. 


And now we have some 'new regulars' ... and very welcome they are too. 


Some friends have fallen off their perches and their gardens are now in other hands ... but it's nice to remember them.

Which tree??

What about a Mahonia japonica?  It'll be happy in the shade and should get to a good height - the books say at least seven to eight feet but I know one that's getting on for double that height. 


Evergreen with winter flowers and usually good autumn colour, and can be judiciously pruned to keep it within a narrow space. 


'Buckland' and 'Winter Sun' are two very good varieties.

What plant is this?

That's a really good suggestion Obelixx

What plant is this?

I'd agree Lion S that it's definitely an asparagus of some sort - hard to tell which with such a small plant - you may well be right
