It looks a bit like a Camellia to me  Is the foliage glossy? when was it in flower and what shape were the flowers? Maybe Escallonia of some sort

Don't give up on them yet Jean - you may get some flowers at the end of the summer- they always flower late for me

Just had a quick look at Jessies Mini Garden  I think it is wonderful that you are encouraging your little one to garden - she will learn so much - not just about gardening. Jessie is a gorgeous little girl and lucky to have a Mum like you

At the end of the Summer (what summer?) if you would like to have a go at overwintering a few cuttings on your windowsill I will happily send you some

Well done Yarrow. It's comforting to know that other people are finding things difficult. I noticed an article on Google News saying that some Midlands apple growers have only 10% of their normal crop.

On a brighter note.... the photo below is NOT my garden, and might not have been taken this year. On the Fork Handles thread, Pam posted an invite to her Open Garden next weekend. Being curious as to where this garden is, I put the address into Google Maps. Google produced an image of the road, and by clicking 'enlarge', this is what you see (you can click on the image to enlarge it further)...

I don't know when Mr Google took that photo, I'm guessing that it might have been this time last year. I assume this is the correct house. It looks very fitting!

I can confirm it is my garden

I think that photo was taken at the end of the 2009 summer- the flowers look as though they are 'going over' - it was taken on a friday - the dustbin is usually hidden in the side garden  I am going out to take a photo

Here you go - it would look so much better in sunshine instead of rain

 Side garden - plants still not flowering like they should be
