Desperate to know what berries I've picked...

Looks like laurel to me. Definitely not sloes. Are the leaves very thick and evergreen looking witha smell when crushed.

Don't eat them

Good idea, weather looks good for some garden work 

Pricking out seedlings

Posted: 30/09/2015 at 20:48

I do it very early, as soon as there's enough seedling to get hold of. That way they don't get leggy and fall over.

Action at last. 9 inches tall and showing pink

I'll have to do some weeding then take a photo.

Odd thing is they're in leaf, usually bare legged at flowering time

seeds arrived thank you Jo.

I've got another collection to list soon. Lorna, I haven't forgotten yours and I should think they've dried off now, so will get them on the way.

Flies are difficult to catch. Craneflies are easy pickings

Cutting back a pathway

I think it's a caryopteris. Usually cut back hard in late winter but given the circumstances I'd probably do it early winter and the apple as soon as the leaves drop.

They soon repair the damage to webs. I tell them if they want to live here they have to fit in with us.

We thought there might be a lack of food under the carport so OH hunts craneflies and throws them into the web
