Re the calories on Christmas Day - what about all the other days though?...

That's why we eat Christmas leftovers for the whole of January - no calories!

I've got presents to wrap today, but hopefully I'll find time to make some mince pies to take to my daughter and son in law tomorrow when I take their presents.  She's working some long shifts between now and Christmas Eve, so don't suppose she'll have a lot of time for baking.

Leave it until the spring then remove old blooms, cutting back to a pair of fat buds.  If the plant is congested then take out some of the older canes from the base.

They also strike really easily from cuttings.  I've produced several for family members.  I usually plant three to a pot and that produces a balanced all-around effect.  https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=840

Good morning all   A bit warmer this morning - it's already 5.4C and only dropped to 1.4C overnight so no frost. 

Today mainly involves presents, paper and sellotape  

Plant ID please.

Hi Jack

The main difference is the different coloured berries - have a look at this site - it has some good ones http://www.burncoose.co.uk/site/plants.cfm?pl_id=3520

A great wildlife shrub

Looks like pyracantha to me - the berries come straight after the flowers but usually colour up towards the autumn - sometimes the birds get them first - I've seen pigeons taking the unripe berries in midsummer.

Are you sure it wasn't evergreen?
