help find a fig tree

Posted: 07/08/2012 at 11:01

You could try googling it.  This site looks useful  http://www.readsnursery.co.uk/fig-trees-tips-and-advice-on-how-to-grow-fig-bushes-in-uk-gardens/.

I use to have a Brown Turkey fig that did very well but it was in a pot in full sun and in Hampshire so not sure how it whether it would be good in Wales.

 

name that plant

I agree with Gary.  Handle the flower stems when finished very carefully as the spines are viscious and will pierce a normal gardening glove.  It may self seed.

I would like to add Evening Primrose.  I introduced one plant into my garden and I am overrun by it now.  I reckon every seed ever produce by the plant has germinated.

You can get round yellow courgettes.  Why not pick one and cut it open? 

Viburnum macrocephalum.

The sucker definitely looks like a Viburnum, I've been out in my gardxen with the laptop to compare to my snowball tree.  What a mystery.  Do you belong to the RHS as they offer advice and identification to members for free

I have 4 tomatoes that I reckon I can pick around Monday.  First mini crop of beans yesterday.  Things are looking up

getting on with the neighbours

The 2m guide also only relates to evergreen hedges.  I back onto farmland and can do nothing about the hedge my 'kind' farmer planted and then failed to cut except trim back the side.
