Can we eat these

Thank you to both the above, I had started to freeze them in the hope they were edible.

I hope there may be enough to make a pot or two of jam.

We have discovered these berrys in our new garden. we have no idea what they are or if we can eat them. We have looked in all the books we can find & on the internet but with no luck.

Thank you to both of the above. We have a mix of 10 apple & 3 plum so not too many, space for the is about 40 yds x 50yds. may be more, with a very overgrow hedge around it. (intending to trim this to about 4' come the autumn, we hoped this many also help to get light & air in to the trees.  I did put some glue bands round in early May & not all the trees have this prob. The best one is favoured greatly by the blackbirds, who are eating the apples before we can get at them.

I thank you again for you help.

We moved into a house with an orchard that has been left to grow wild. lots of the trees have problems. Can we save these or do we start again.

I have no idea were to start. or what the problems are, would a good pruning help?

I have a dragon arum either side of the front door, we have only been here a couple of months, having just discovered what it is & the smell I can expect. how would I go about moving it to a spot away from the house & when should I do this? Any help & advise would be very welcome.

Hi Dove, Lincolnshire 7miles from Skegness, Garden has an orchard, a wooded area, lawns & a small paddock. Flat land around us, but garden is sheltered by trees, soil is lovely dark & rich. It's been let go & for the last 9 wks I have been out there every day. pulling nettles etc. & just trying to bring order to it. When something new flowers, it's a wonderful feeling. Thanks for your intrest.

Hi, Please help me name my beautiful big plant, we moved to a new house in april, with a very large garden, lots of new & exciting plants, trees & flowers. we are intending to take a full year before making any changes because we are getting surprizes every week. this is the latest. I have searched the internet & can't find anything like it.

Flowering started about a week ago, the whole shrub is around about 3ft tall & some of the flower buds are well over a ft. the backside of the main flower is green. I do hope one of you out there can help.

Thank you Kim
