That's sad Fishy. 


I don't think I've seen any signs but a patch of red ones I planted last year isn't visible so may have snuffed it for some reason. 

Hibiscus pruning

If that first one was mine I'd get rid of it. H-C is right, they rarely need pruning  and that one has been hacked out of any decent shape.

I had one for years but one of those very cold winters finished it off. (Peterborough) It wasn't in a protected site, trees around but no warm wall.

Mushrooms in the lawn

if they're on the roots of the conifer they will move on when there's no more food.


But not all fungi are on tree roots.


There are outbreaks of assorted fungi every year, fascinating things.

A bit too far for me 

Oleaster (Elaeagnus x ebbingei) - pollinators, and growing tips for berries

Posted: 20/03/2017 at 21:36

I think you have a straight answer in what Ladybird said earlier. The flowers have male and female parts and don't need another different plant to pollinate them.


The variegated versions are the same plant except for leaf colour which doesn't affect flower and fruit. If this plant needed something else to pollinate them the variegated ones wouldn't do. But it doesn't. Bees transfer the pollen from the male bits to the female bits


They are edible in that they are not poisonous but in the UK they are unlikely to ripen.
