What the heck - my purse isn't big enough - but one can dream

Plant fairs, open gardens and packets of seeds supplied me with most of my garden. Patience was required. Some of the shrubs took a year or ten to make much impact from seed. Very satisfying.

planting Hawthorh from cuttings

I love growing things from seed. I have field maples and scots pines and lots of oddments at least 20foot tall from seed in the 20 years or so that we've been here. 

Sorbus hupehensis

I've got berries like I've never had before on Sorbus hupehensis. All the S.aucuparia have been eaten, these are untouched. Will the birds be put off by the unripe appearance?

Around here our gardens would become forests with all the tree seedlings if we didn't keep pulling them out. Do you know anyone with hawthorns that would let you look around for seedlings?

I don't have much confidence in the idea of hawthorn cuttings but I'm not much good at cuttings. 

You're not too late for hard wood cuttings, just right. I'd use rooting powder on some and a control without.. Do you receive the GW newsletter? It has a bit on hardwood cuttings this week

John Downie is lovely. I haven't got any at all. 

I think you're right about Golden Hornet Dove. The  owner is really pleased that the birds don't steal the fruit

Crab apple jelly Jim I haven't had that for years
