We get them. I say them because they turn up with their baby and then feed it while sitting in our apple tree. As well as using the tree for nest building practice. The green woodpecker brings its baby too.

Advice needed - weeds!

I would dig out your plants, dig out the weeds and replant. You could mulch around your plants. If it come back again, 3) would be your option.

If the little flower buds look like they might be yellow, its a weed but I can't remember the name. I reckon Nut will know it.

Bargain Buy of 2015

What has been your best buy? Mine was a flaming katy for £1.00 and a slipper orchid £9.99. Never seen one 'in the flesh' before so hope I can keep it going.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
