A few plant id's please

I can't enlarge them at all and there's no picture of a red cherry or tree 

What do I grow?

Posted: 04/05/2014 at 20:51

In the original post Mike asked us to let him know what we grow in our gardens to aid him in some research he's doing - so those who've contributed have done it in the spirit of being helpful - not boasting.   

Of course there's no compulsion to take part, but I do think it's unkind to make judgements about the people who have responded to Mike's request. 

There are (believe it or not ) threads that I rarely or never contribute to, for various reasons, but I wouldn't dream of criticising those who do. 

As for feeling it's like showing off to post pics of our garden - I don't feel like that -there are far too many shortcomings in my garden for it to be showing off - but there are times when I'm so chuffed with something I just want to share it - sometimes I grab OH's hand and drag him to look at it - sometimes I grab my camera and share it with you lot 

What plant is growing in my garden?

What animal did this come from

If I were you I'd go on the Wild about Britain Forum and ask there

Doesn't look like any hedgehog poo we get in our garden

No I've not got a PM reply box either - I'd not noticed the connection between the big adverts and the reply box disappearing - we'd better let Daniel know on Tuesday. We can use this email address

Oooh, feet up  - tummy stuffed with roasted free range GOS pork , cider gravy, new potatoes and the last of the Swiss chard out of the garden, washed down with some Frome Valley Henney's dry cider 

Hope tomorrow's weather is at least as good as today's and hope tonight is frost free - I've taken the fleece off the figs!!!  According to the Met Office it won't go below 5C ....

Depends on the variety, when you sowed them, when you planted them and the conditions ............. 

Asian Hornet

Posted: 04/05/2014 at 18:42

There were alarums last year about the Asian hornet's march towards Great Britain.

 Friends in southern France have come across them - I expect they'll get here eventually
