HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Morning all - afties Pat if you'e around

Gorgeous day again here - been a little frost I think, but not too sharp. I'd be happy if the temps never got any higher than yesterday - it got to about 14 with no wind. Perfect for me  

Thermals for me at work Clari - never warm in that place either. It means I have to strip off when I come outside though!

Nice to see you again BM 

Enjoy your trip Dove - can you get me some replacement plants for the back garden please?

I think it's a case of stick them in and see sometimes! As long as the roots have a good covering of soil and they don't get dried out, I don't think there will be much of a problem. The new shoots will find their way up

He was quite faraway Joyce - but he didn't spot me until I took that photo! 

Hope to get out but this nice weather isn't to last by the look of the forecast unfortunately

Hmmm ...I've read this thread (an old one revived by a post in March) and I think quite a few people answered the question - more than one question actually

Plant 5 is Spirea - Bridal Wreath probably. No 2 looks like a Spirea as well, but it's a bit blurry so tricky to be sure. Looks like it's growing habit though 

No 4  (yellow one)  - looks like Forsythia but I can't see it very clearly either

I think your tree is Amelanchier by the look of it

The brown woody bits are the roots and the longer white pieces are the new shoots. Plant just deeply enough so that those white shoots are at soil level and you should be fine
