Hedge cutting

Posted: 20/02/2014 at 15:58

Mine are done, plus the big bay bush/tree that has been left for years on account of the birds. When I got in there I didn't find a single nest though the great tits are in and out all the time throughout the year.

It depresses me to hear that people still have such little regard for the effects on wildlife.

Hi Jill, you'd do better starting a new thread for a new ID.

This is caper spurge, Euphorbia lathyrus. I think it's distributed by aliens. It crops up from nowhere. 

Am I doing something wrong?

Have a look at the chilli thread Jamie. 

Stacey is the resident chilli expert, she'll probably be around later

Not Eve Price then.

Maybe White Egret or French White. I don't know them well enough to tell the difference.
