Yes GWRS we had them too for the first time. Grrrr!! Was too late netting them this year 😕

Books, catalogues, magazines or digital?

With you on that one Scroggin,  much prefer to hold a book to read. Always have and think I always will. Having said that the internet does have many plus points especially the ease and speed of researching. I do a lot of my research for gardening online.  Sometimes though I do suffer from information overload and resort to gardening books!! 

Loads of tomatoes but very slow in ripening

Same problem here in Essex, no sign of toms ripening. Other veg also progessing slower than in previous years, especially squash.

What is this shrub? .....

I have a variegated one in my garden too which, like Ladybird4's, had been just beautiful this year. Definitely recommend!  Gather they're quite easy to propagate as well.

Enjoy it while it lasts Dave! I'm sure we'll make the most of the lovely weather when it arrives here in the normally balmy east 😊

Am also shivering here in Essex! Toms & squash planted out last week, just hope they're patient enough to wait for warmer days & still produce lots of lovely veg ☺

Thanks everyone for your ideas ☺  I particularly like the sound of the Ameliancher. Time to do a bit more research! 

Ideas for small tree

Hi all, We're looking to plant a small tree in our garden ideally no higher than about 15ft at maturity. It would be in quite a focal point of the garden, sunny & open site but relatively sheltered.  Anyone have any suggestions? 

Awful new format for forum
