Tall shrubs in shade

Yes, I agree with auntie betty.  Fatsia japonica loves the shade and has lovely large leaves.

Thanks everyone for your help.  Glad to know about the bees liking them as I am a beekeeper and they need all the help they can get at the moment.  And no - Bookertoo - they dont come out in this weather although as soon as the sun shines they are out in force.

help with cerinthe

I have sown cerinthe seeds for the first time.  These are now ready for planting out.  My question is this:-  should I group them together in twos or threes or should they be planted singly?

Begonia Aricot shades

Yes, I agree.  Trailing begonias will form quite good tubers by the end of the year.  Just make sure you keep them dry over the winter then plant up again in the spring.

Ground elder in compost bin

No - no worms.  I do find some in there but think they just get in there from when I add weeds etc.  Think they are in the soil attached to the weeds.

I have 2 compost bins, both on concrete behind my shed.  I - or should I say my husband - turns the compost and we have never had any trouble with them being on concrete.  We end up with lovely compost.

christmas tree

Posted: 07/12/2012 at 12:25

We bought 2 very small potted christmas trees after christmas 3 years ago.  One didnt survive but the one that did is doing really well.  For the past 2 years we have brought it indoors as an extra christmas tree for our dining room, each year slightly bigger than the last.  Hopefully one year it will take the place of the large one we buy for our lounge.

What's the weather like in your area?

I live in the fens but we have no snow as yet!!  Flipping cold, windy and wet though.  Just hope my bees survive the winter.

I have just taken delivery of an apple tree (ordered in October) which has to be planted straight away.  Oh well, on with the thermals !!

Can anyone name this please

Have to agree with Joe the Gardener.  think it is a snowberry.  Lovely plant but can be a bit invasive.
