That's just about seeing lots of plants and picking out the imporrtant points. How many petals, what do the leaves look like etc.

I can only do it for hardy plants, natives etc. I can't do exotics and I'm not much good at alpines

Are these wild raspberries?

Not but I killed one once

We saw a nice crop at East Ruston.

I'm not convinced, just thought it a possiblity. There are so many similar raspberry/brambly things

I squidge the blackfly. You can spray them with detergent, it doesn't take a lot.

Go on. Say it!

I think this is a gilia, it's not a scabious. The flower head here is made up of several individual 5 petalled flowers on separate stems, scabious has all that head on one stem.

Q about transplanting fruit bushes...

Are they in pots or in the ground at the moment Zoomer?
