Plant identity

It looks like the beautifully scented Viburnum Bodnantense - there are several varieties.  They usually flower in midwinter when the leaves have fallen, but this is an odd year and mine has been flowering on and off since August

HELLO FORKERS!

The Under Gardener has been lovely this afternoon - apparently I'm not yet fit to plant shrubs and bulbs, so under supervision he has planted a buddliea, some perennials and some bulbs for me.

Now I'm roasting a chicken and chunks of squash to have with roast potatoes and runner beans for our supper.

I think the error message you're getting may be because the picture is too big, or because the site is too busy.

Are you clicking on the green tree icon to upload?

Please can anyone tell me what this is.

It is a lovely helpful and friendly site isn't it

That is a gorgeous begonia - I'm recently warming to orange - it must be the time of year.

You see that yellow flowered plant behind the lamp in that last photo - that's another type of oxalis like the purple leaved one - you have the beginning of a collection

Please can anyone tell me what this is.

The purple leaves belong to an oxalis, probably Oxalis triangularis.

Don't know about the plant with the orange flowers. Is that what you call the Bonfire plant?   I like it.

Don't the purple and the orange look good together

Any idea what this is?

For some reason I'm now able to zoom in on the pic - so scrub my suggestion of Sisyrinchium.

I'm tempted to go along with the Carex theory. 

Fruit trees

Fish, Blood and Bone is an organic slow-acting fertiliser.  I usually apply it to fruit trees in the very early spring (February), but I know some people who are happy to apply it at any time in the winter after the leaves have fallen.

It will aid healthy sturdy growth rather than the soft lush growth that often results from the use of a high nitrogen fertiliser, so it's just what your quince needs.
