Hi all.

Freezing cold and trying to snow.

I am aware that they can suffer from leaf spot, but am unaware of what if anything you should do.

Sorry not much help.

Identify this shrub if possible?

Almost impossible to say from that photo. Will need to see some leaves when they appear.

Can anyone name this plant?

Been freezing today, but lovely and sunny. Spent some time pruning some shrubs, as I could do that without walking on the sodden soil.

OH is applying for a new job, so she got me to check her CV, it was complete gobbledegook to me and she is supposed to be a Communications manager, whatever that is. She is not impressed with my comments

If you are going to leave out chocolate biscuits, I may retrain as a plasterer.

Lot of bulbs to put in the fridge.

Without a large cold storage area, I think that they will bloom too early, sorry.

Plant/shrub/tree identification help?

That is some name to live up to.

I am not sure I would want to expose a root, just wait till it comes into leaf.

Keith Floyd was the guy who got me interested in cooking, I think I just liked the idea that you could drink wine while you were doing it.
