Linda, I love it. What a thought eh?

we have decided it can stay where it is for the time being. i will pollard it when it reaches 8 ft or so. If it becomes too unruly well I will fell it for my granddaughters wedding lol.

Thank you everyone. It could well be a walnut as there was a walnut tree in the garden years ago, the leaves are not waxy or glossy like a Laurel. It's certainly taken a long time to grow as it was felled about 5 years ago, we are always finding shells. Be a shame to dig it up I like pickled walnuts. 

If I decide to keep it, can't it be pruned to keep it compact?

This tree was only a seedling when we brought the house 18 months ago, now it is 3ft high. I'm not sure what it is, it is about 15 ft from the House. I would like to know what it is and how big it will grow. If it's in the wrong place it will have to go.

thanking you all in advance.

When should I sow stock seeds in a greenhouse? I've been told that they should be sow now, is that right?

I've got a new greenhouse, so all geraniums are cut back and potted together in a tesco basket (handy items these) I've also dug up my dahlias and am storing them in a tesco basket too.

just a suggestion.

Go to your local vet / doctor, hopefully you have a good relationship. Ask for a syringe and a needle. if you get one your in business. fill syringe with roundup inject the little dears and watch it die.

Not an orthodox method but worth a try?? it gets you past the waxy leaves. time consuming yes. Will it work? It should do.

Please be very careful with the needle.

There are gardening alternatives to the needle bus as the stem is not over thick?

I know they are out there, but I'm blowed if I can find any. 

Can anyone help? About 5 years ago I purchased some bird friendly slug pelletts. They weren't great but they did work with regular dosing. The best thing was they don't hurt birds or pets should the slugs /snails are eaten.

ive been to homebase and other stores but have no luck. Any ideas?
