Cherry fruit

what I had in mind was one of the Taphrina fungi, T. pruni or padi but the gall produced is hollow as a rule. Google Taphrina pruni and see if you recognise anything. A lot of them are sort of long, tongue shaped but some are round.

If not that I have no idea,  my interest is in the galls, i'm not a fruit grower. I first met T.padi on my bird cherry. Took a long time to ID it in those early daysof interweb

some people growlupins as biennials. sow i summer, flower next year. Go for it

your not the only one sowing too many seeds but you never know how many are going to come up do you. 

was wondering today what I'm going to do with at least 10 of those climbing dicentras and 10 Buddleia lorica.  Have seed, will sow. and lots of them germinate

I didn't know that Berghill, I thought it was just the result of having the soil taken away from the roots

Was used to treat fevers and I think some chew it for migraines. Don't know if it works or poisons any other part of you

Definitely feverfew. I think it may be a weed but haven't quite decided. It will grow in a few places that others won't so I may let it stay a bit longer

Could be a wiegela, hard to tellwhen it's sick like that. I'd have a look at the root and see if anythings attacking it. Unless it's newly planted and been allowed to dry out
