Topbird, if you pick up the prunings and the secateurs together and put them through the shredder, they make an exciting clatter and there's not much left

Buy it from a reputable company as Crocus sativus.

Not difficult to buy but I've never had a flower in all the times I've planted them, even when I lived in Saffron Walden where they were grown commercially in the distant past.

 

Newbie plea for help!

I assume it's quite shady in there?

Alliaria petiolata, Jack by the hedge is a good biennial, food plant for the orange tip butterfly larvae, foxgloves would be good but are poisonous. Primroses, snowdrops, pulmonaria. There is a native pulmonaria but the usual ones found in GCs are fine.

We discussed in the past, maybe not on this thread, the cycles of these and other wild creatures. I'd never seen them before we moved here 22 years ago. Then for a few years there were lots. Now very few again.

I like my broad beans very young, cooked in the pods. Very nice. Better than mange tout

Hi Wendy, is this a multi-stemmed tree and you want to remove some or do you want to reduce the height? 

I should think the dormant season would be best but I've never pruned one. I left one behind in my last garden so someone has probably pruned it by now

ID's if possible please =+)

I think Lyn is right about them all being the same, the first 2 definitely. Not mint though.
