i think it's  Echium vulgare as Fritillary says. But not the species, aka Viper's Bugloss, one of the cultivars that come in the annual mixes, there's one called 'Blue Bedder', but there are others

How about changing the woodstain to something less palatable

Can anyone help identify this "berry" tree?

definitely last year's seeds, this year's have barely been shed. 

Fuchsia not producing any berries?

Posted: 06/08/2016 at 15:50

the berries ripen to blue/black but they don't start like that.

I don't know if all the hybrid fuchsias produce seed but I don't think you'd need 2 different sorts
