wild cherry, what's up with it

Posted: 08/05/2013 at 21:46

The 3 trees here, 2 on the outside with blossom and one in the middle, leafy, are all wild cherries. Something strange happened to the middle one very early in it's life. It doesn't have much blossom/fruit, thoughwhat it has are very nice. The leaves and stems have a twisted, distorted appearance and the leaves are bronzed. It's been like it for years, if it's a disease it's never passed on to any other tree. Any ideas?

Mandrake is an interesting plant, these are it's unripe fruits, not to be eaten.

And meadow buttercups

They're here then, that's good. I probably thought they were swallows.

I've invited swallows and swifts to share our home but they've never moved in. I'm quite envious.

How big and old is it Patricia? I wanted to move mine but when I starting digging I realised there was no chance without heavy machinery. If you can get it moved, cutting it back won't hurt it.

Planning for ground frosts

Posted: 08/05/2013 at 13:52

Have a look out there. If the sky has cleared and the temperature is dropping the chances of frost are high. We might get a frost that's not mentioned on a weather forecast but rarely a frost that I didn't expect.

and the met office has all the info, you can look and see what the cloud cover is and what's happening to it
