help identifying a small shrub

Posted: 09/04/2016 at 16:44

Thankyou so much...that's not one I've ever heard of and yes, you're right, it doesn't do anything but leaf up. I've just had a tree removed behind it so I'm hoping it'll like the additional light this coming growing season.

I've finally lifted 6 or so red spring onions which I left in the veg trug and have subsequently gotten as large as a regular onion. I'm presuming they are still edible and could be used as a cooking onion?? I'm not a great fan myself so can someone confirm they will work as a cooking onion?

That's great. I've picked them as I want to keep harvesting - thrown so many away in the past! Should make a nice soup addition.

Thanks Steve and Runnybeak (great name!!)

Hi all. I've been away for nearly 2 weeks and despite dad's best efforts there are lots of inedible runners. I've picked them but as they are such a faff to pod whilst still green can i dry them out and then use them for cooking? Anyone tried this? I have grown 'white lady' this year for the first time.

A poor show in my snow flattened garden here in the east Mids I'm afraid. One red pulsatilla and a few Geum Prinses Juliana........oh and a few cyclamen. Snowdrops coming up nicely which is good as I've transplanted them last year.

Ok - by now it's mellowed a bit so it shouldn't happen again? I forgot to mention that I moved the two original plants (that the RHS replaced) to the other side of my garden and one recovered and has grown healthy. 

I shall be much more careful with many ring in future!

thanks all for your help

Andrea
