Not had an apple for years!

Does it flower. If it doesn't flower, it needs pruning to shape and the area around it clearing. If it flowers but no fruit, it may need a pollinator.

Eucalyptus? ID please

As nutcutlet says, it could be one of many species. The bark looks like my  E. perriniana, it is splitting like that at the moment, leaving a red bark underneath.

I think the first one is a scented leaf pelargonium, second one is a bougainvillea.

 I like Tia Maria in my coffee, with double cream floating on top.

Greenhouse tomatoes and eucalyptus tree

Are you growing in the same soil in the greenhouse every year, or in pots, or are you replacing the soil?

Things I don't get

I always thought that Picasso was having a huge laugh on the Art World. He knew that from a certain point, he could turn out any old rubbish and the art world would ooh and aah and put a high price on it. He generated thousands of paintings that only came to light after his death,  so that if they all came onto the market after his death, the prices would plunge.

I didn't get the pile of scrap girders they had at Chatsworth the other year.

I don't get why people complain about a lack of lifeguards on beaches, but how many do you think would put a quid in a collecting box for the RNLI at the beach entrance?

tulip bulbs

Where did you get them from? They look like last year's that have been packed in perlite or something. It's not how I would expect tulip bulbs to look.

Are they any good?

Rotol has gone into the tardis,  Two daleks into the rotol.

 Time for lunch.

The 1st builders bag looks a bit dry, I'll get the hosepipe out again.

I think B&Q sell smallish bags of rock dust  for  a trial. 5.84 for 10 kg

Complain at once to the supplier. Bulbs should look smooth and healthy, no sign or rot or mould. Planting substandard bulbs could lead to disease spreading.
