I don't recognise that at all but I'll push you up to the top of the forum

Larkspur seeds

Posted: 21/04/2015 at 16:14

put the seeds in a bag of moist compost/vermiculite and put them in the fridge for 6 weeks. Keep an eye on them, they may germinate in there. I sow them early in a cold GH, much easier

Unlikely anything from Tenerife needs fridge treatment.

I can't see any lily beetles on mine. Dove was here this morning and she's good at finding them if they're there

That looks like Mahonia aquifolia. That will seed itself without assistance

Bay tree - roots

Posted: 21/04/2015 at 08:33

Ladysmum, a bay can be cut back to keep it under control, if it's not too big at the top the roots won't be too extensive. I've cut mine to a sort of dome, about 9 foot tall. It looked a bit bald on top when viewed from upstairs for the first year but it's all lovely and green now. Mine is probably about 10 foot from the house. I'm hoping the suckers will eventually form a wider but not taller dome. It has always suckered in a big way, long before I cut it. It's a sucker from one in my previous garden.

Pink fizz climbing fuschia

I think that's too much to expect of a fuchsia. It's hardy if you live in the right place. Not evergreen as Nd says, will probably die back in winter if it doesn't die completely and you'll be waiting till mid-summer for cover of any sort. And they don't really climb, they're taller than the traditional bushy fuchsia. Climbers have some method of hanging on, tendrils, twining or thorns.
