ID of tree

Cotoneaster sp. Not always easy to say which one as they can cross pollinate.

Flowers not right for Prunus padus.

They have a stalk with many flowers along the length of it. See...

Acer ID please

Even with the tree right infront of them an expert in Acers would  probably struggle.

Spring colour/autumn colour,  leaf size, stem colour,  growth rate all need to be checked.

Some Acer palmatums are seed grown and do not have a cultivar name.

If your tree is grafted it may be a named cultivar...but there are 1000's

I also had an Acer obsession,  I can warn is not a cheap hobby.

Ladybird4 is right .

Love it and look after it...water it and mulch it well.

Acer ID please

It looks like Acer palmatum.

Impossible to say if it is a named cultivar.

Hybrid bluebell?

Posted: 13/05/2017 at 16:00

Hyacinthoides non scripta our native bluebell flowers have white-cream coloured pollen.

This is an identifying characteristic. Non-native Spanish bluebells have blue pollen.

To muddy the water..... Hyacinthoides × massartiana is a hybrid species produced by crosses between the common bluebell, H. non-scripta and the Spanish bluebell, H. hispanica.

What's this shrub and when can I cut it back?

RHS advice is to prune AFTER flowering.
