Not Flowered

They do seem to wait until year 2 to flower but it's not too late in the year for flowers to appear.  I have one clump where the buds are just beginning to show.

help find a fig tree

You could try googling it.  This site looks useful

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.

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.
