Trip to Cambridge University Botanical Garden 11th October

My friend Linda (who came to Castor House) would like to come as well if that's OK and if she's free. We were up emptying a moth trap at 7am and she hadn't got her diary

Berberis Thunbergii Question regarding pruning

Hi Paul, yes it's deciduous

I cut back a few old stems to ground level now and then. I'm sure it would cope whatever you did. Late winter would be my time, others may do differently.

Never made pear but have waited up to 18 months for a wine to clear (sugarbeet) You can get stuff to add to wine to clear it but I never used it

The leaves of the Zantedeschia which is what's usually referred to as arum lily are longer and more pointed looking and have a different texture.

I think there are several people here who will be familiar with both and can tell you.

That's good CP

How are you liking the smell of ivy in flower? I don't like it but others don't seem to mind.

It's great for insects. The pollen/nectar eaters are all round mine and the dragonflies are all around the nectar eaters

I'm looking forward to it as well, though it's only just over a year since I was there.

No qualifications required Billie and this isn't the place to discuss them. This is our planning thread

Have you got a photo of the arum lily?

A previous arum lily on the forum wasn't an arum lily it was Arum maculatum

What are these

I've never seen seeds for sale but you don't need to buy them, the plant will make some for you when it's finished flowering, unless it's a sterile hybrid.

Also they spread by roots and make more exactly the same which seeds won't from a cultivar
