Two tree IDs please

Just taken another couple of pics 

The seeds usually turn black and fall off but this year seem to be swelling and turning red. Although some are still turning black.

Brilliant. Defo Physocarpus just googled images and they look definitely like mine. Not sure about the viburnam. Dont think I get red berries but the leaves look similar.  It's definately evergreen though. Just loses the occasional leaf after it turns bright red. Thanks so much for your help guys

I've got a little twisted hazel in a pot and the leaves are slightly different Ladybird4.  I actually do have a couple of hazelnuts on that one.  The lighter more yellow tree does have very small white flowers but nothing to write home about.  The second post of the tree with darker leaves you just see the end of the flowers now turning to seeds.  

Gladioli blooms

hi, I've planted quite a few gladioli this year and whilst some are splendid, on others the blooms are diseased and not coming out.  Or they are out but look mouldy around the edges.  I thought it might be the amount of rain we've had but not sure why all of them aren't ruined just some. Any ideas?

hi, I have two trees that are starting to outgrow my little garden so I'd like to prune slightly. Any ideas what they are? It's my mum's old garden and they've been here as long as I can remember. So 25 years plus.

My wonderful yellow gladioli that I planted last year haven't flowered at all this year. Just sent up lots of smaller leaves.  I was wondering whether to lift them this Autumn, overwinter and replant next spring or leave well alone and see what they do next year.  Any advice out there?

Thanks Paul B3 I think you're right. I do seem to remember buying something like that in flower last year.  Didn't realise it would get so big and unflowery! 

....and josusa47 I know the slippers are ugly but they keep my tootsies warm when padding around in the garden!

thanks guys
