looks like a small bamboo.
you can use the leaves in breads and cakes and other cooking but not too much.Also you can use it as a disenfectant or if you out it the oven after baking (oven off) it will act as a freshner to the whole house or in a bowl of hot water.It likes a dry site and protect from very cold weather.
its lovely to see them at dusk when do acrobatics across the sky before they roost.Somerset is the place to watch them.
I alw.ays put a stone in front and grow a low plant as well so as to cover the feet so to speak.water well.#
all birds and slugs will have a go at the apples,I pick them before the birds can do too much damage but there is plenty to round.
I use to clip the berries off and the next year it would flower well but I like looking at berries .
just pull up the weeds,it takes no time,and once the trees start to grow the weeds wont grow there.
maybe need more watering or just awhile longer to develope.
I have just spotted ladybirds today as my flowers have all of sudden aphids,they appeared from nowhere.
I have one which I have had for 41 years and transfered it when we moved and also grew some as a hedge.The lilac has now been in one spot for 36 years but alas it has a virus of sorts and is dying.it grew as a small tree as we pruned the top so as it woundt get too big.
