Good morning!
Ahh yes, I didn't think about the birds, there's always something or another in the tree so I wouldn't want to disturb them if they decide to nest. I may have to do the same and get cutting sooner rather than later.

I will head out tomorrow morning and give a leaf a sniff. I do really like its just at the wrong end of the garden so will have to live with it where it is and perhaps give it a tidy up. When would bw the best time? Im thinking after the small buds flower?

The fig tree you ID'd a few month ago is under the tree, nutcutlet (bottom left in pic). Its looking very different this time of year. All gangly and bare.

Its huge! we cut a lot back as well when we moved in as it was blocking the view of the garden as it's the house end of the garden.

Thank you for all the replies so far. The neigbours haven't mentioned anything yet but we've been talking a lot lately (mainly about bins!) so im sure they'll mention it.

Hi all,

I hope the weather hasn't been to hard on you all. My garden is a bit of a swamp at the moment but nothing a few dry days wont fix, I hope.

I have a (very) large tree in the garden of a house I have recently moved in to and internet searches haven't helped at all. I wonder if any of you could help ID it for me? I have only been in the house a few months so haven't seen it all year round but it is evergreen and seems like it has thousands of buds on it so hoping for an explosion of flowers in spring, if not, I quite like it as it is!

Any help is very much appreciated 




Self seeding foxglove...

Posted: 04/10/2013 at 22:21

I read somewhere that one foxglove can produce over a million seeds so you've got a busy weekend ahead zoomer! 

I collected the as many seeds as I could from mine a couple of months back but still have seedlings popping up everywhere, the warm weather we had last week really gave them a boost and think I'm going to let nature take its course with those. 

Another foxglove question and a rose cutting question

They are still in seed trays so quite small, about an inch round max at the moment i'd say. That would be very nice if that is the case.

Just googled camelot cream, they are lovely.

I planted a few varieties of foxglove a month or so back in the hope they would flower next year but after some research I might have to wait a bit longer!

Thanks for your help again nutcutlet.

I put any I find now in the compost bin, they seem quite happy to stay in there even when I leave the lid off for a while and the potted plants have had a year off from being snail food. A seperate subject no doubt but I find most of them on the bird feeders these days, not sure what they like so much about the seeds...
