I am with flowering rose. I dont know much about house plants but, I do grow money trees to go outside in summer, and this is not one. If you look at the picture on the website mentioned on here that is a money tree and, it does not anything like the picture on the thread.

Both would suit those conditions very well. I have a great fondness for the viburnum even though it is deciduous.

A very happy birthday Dove. I hope you are going to have a day of being pampered as should happen to all girls on their 27th. birthdays.

More of the same here, dark, cold and wet.

Looks like one of the winter Clematis cultivars.

Various Dryopteris species are evergreen in my woodland Stacey, plus they like dry shade if thats what your woodland has.

I am obviously showing my true age, not knowing about the Poddington Peas. I must have been too young!

Hi PoddingtonP, how did you choose that avatar?

Very cold all day here, even a brief flurry of snow. Spent a bit of time in the greehouse trying to make some space on the staging, so that there is room for all the seed trays which will hopefully be in there over next month or so.

Autumn sown sweet peas are looking good, 6 inches tall and bushy and, I have sown more inside. I like to sow at different times to try and get flowers over a longer period. Potted up some seed grown violas and the autumn sown Ammi.

Advice please

How about Rosa rugosa. Grows to about 2 metre, doesnt require any care, pink or white flowers and huge red hips for the birds.

Morning all. Just looked out of the window, dark, windy and wet, seriously considering going back to bed.

Hope all sickly ones feel better and that all you workers have as good a day as you can.

The greenfinch thing is very sad. We used to get them regularly in the garden, but in the last few years thhey have apparently been hit badly by a fungal disease.

How about this for a sighting, although not this year. 2 years ago for the count I had a water rail! This year nothing so spectacular, but, did have a few nuthatches and a bullfinch
