Plant ID - probably a weed or wildflower

Have a look at violets.

But  there's something else in there as well. Can you take a photo from the other side?

Plant ID, updates and confirmations.

Hi Jack, yes, Crataegus will trim up fine. 

Help – how do I stop insects biting me?

Posted: 19/04/2014 at 13:55

I've got a mozzie net so they don't bite me at night

Is this new Hawthorn tree diseased? Looks worrying.

I'll stick with species I think. Though Hawthorns are inclined to throw out branches anywhere they feel like it. Little tufts appear on the trunks anywhere there's been a minor damage

It looks  bit  rough though doesn't it. Where did you get it from?

I don't like the bottom of the trunk being narrower than that further up.

Or the bark damage.

I assume from the bark colours that the graft is quite high and all those damages will be a source of suckers. 

I have no experience of grafted trees, but that just doesn't look good to me

Poisonous Plants

Over the years I've known lots of cats in gardens full of all sorts of plants and no cat ever got ill. I think they still have some sort of instinct/common sense that we've lost.

Not so sure about dogs

This fits with J. polyanthum as I know it (and lost it)

I can't improve on that

I see you live in Spain Ken.


bay tree pruning

Posted: 19/04/2014 at 09:38

Mine has proved amenable to a hard haircut now and again. It was a very tall multi-stemmed blob. I cut it back several feet to make a ground-level ball about 7 foot high. 

It looks good from 3 sides but the side away from the light looks a bit gappy. It doesn't look very good from the top yet, I can see it from the landing window, but it greened up OK last time I did it.

I did it a couple of months ago, probably a bit too early for the bay but I was concerned for the birds. The weather was kind though and it's just about in flower now
