Lyn we haven't pruned it at all...

Around four years ago we had bad storm here and a lot of trees were brought down, the council cut them into shall we say manageable sizes  my OH being the way she is collected these cut tree trunks from various locations ie the local golf course and the local park, and we built a roundish bed with them and filled it with soil, compost, gravel and collected wood chippings from the area's were the trees were cut up and put that in too, we planted it up, and the following year this plant appeared, i took it the OH planted it, she assumed i planted it, i asked her what it was she said how should she know as i was the one that planted it, we left it at that and forgot about it, until this spring, all we do is water the bed its in, so basically it is surviving on neglect, we do have to thin out the bed a lot as there is a lot of aggressive ground cover plants in there, so there you have the history of how it came to be there, my best guess is it came with the wood chippings...

Ah ha currant you say, it all makes sense now, yes it has a few little green fruits that look like tiny gooseberry's, it's north facing so guessing that's why it doesn't fruit..

A geranium is good for me..

A Pyramid Orchid how exciting, it comes up every year, is there anyway we can propagate it?

Morning ya-all

I have a day out the salt mines for good behaviour today, least it's dry for the first time in what seems weeks..

FG i too use skin so soft to keep the midges away when camping/fishing, the little blighters just love me..

 Chicky, it's good to do something that scares you, makes you feel alive...

Have a nice day everyone..

Talking about beechgrove i'm heading up that neck of the woods next week, does anyone know if the garden is open for the public to visit, also does anyone know of any good gardens to visit up around the Aberdeen, Inverurie area?...
