Pyracantha Growing Conditions

Posted: 21/09/2015 at 11:11

I have an orange pyracantha in my front garden next to the house, in shade. It gets a tiny bit of sun in the morning, and then from 2pm onwards when the sun moves round. It is always covered in flowers and then berries, but they don't last long once the blackbirds find them.

Found these in a drawer, what are they?

Wonder if the bigger bulbs could be shrivelled dog tooth violets?

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.
