It looks like a rowan to me - good for wildlife - the birds love the berries (which is probably how it came to be where it is).  Worth keeping - if it's not in the best place for it (and it does look a mite close to that fence) I'd move it in the autumn when it's dormant.

Good morning KEF   

Inspired by Fidget's bluebells, we are planning an expedition here  http://www.norfolkwildlifetrust.org.uk/wildlife-in-norfolk/nature-reserves/reserves/foxley-wood over the weekend - not far from here so I won't have to keep OH out of the studio for too long 

Helping Solitary Bees - will they all nest in flower pots?

They've chosen those pots in their wisdom because they are ideally situated for them - if you move them you may not choose such a good spot and they will leave, or worse, they may perish

It's concentrating on getting its roots into the soil - as has been said, top dress with compost or well rotted farm yard manure now and again in the autumn.  Water well now and again in any dry spells - don't let the soil around it dry right out - and as you've said, don't harvest any stalks this year.  It'll be fantastic next year

Mike ((hugs))   I've been away and just had a brief read of your recent post.  I hope it will help if I tell you that several years ago I knew a chap who had what sounds like the same type of bladder cancer that you have - he had the same 'up the spout' inspections that you've had - the treatment was done the same way with lasers - he would have a day off work for the treatment and go back to work the next day - he was a builder doing strenuous work.  He would have a regular 'inspection' once every 12 months and if anything needed zapping it would be zapped with a laser there and then.  He fathered the third of his three children after starting receiving this treatment.  He died some 25 years later in his 70s of a severe stroke.  

I remember him telling me that the most painful thing of any of the treatment was the injections - the rest he regarded as a day off work   I would add that he was an active allotmenteer!!!

I hope that gives you a degree of reassurance - remember we're all 'rooting' for you - rooting, get it???  That's a joke that is ((hugs))
