Thanks Liriodendron: never heard of it!  No wonder I couldn't find it.  There will be more pics soon.

Another one from my 'new' garden.  Over a metre tall, perennial, started flowering last week.  Any clues? Thanks

Yes, I was wondering if it is a lime ... lucky you Mackers: I can't get them to grow with me.

If you are going to plant another tree perhaps some Rootgrow to encourage the roots?

Mind you they are still on the kitchen window sill: I am not risking outside for anything yet (frost last night in the soft south west ...)

I am in the soft south west (still perishing cold here too). My Allium Christopheri are in their first year, and some of the dozen I put in have the beginnings of a bud, but I am not uncrossing my fingers yet.

Not sure but might it be Ena Harkness? Long time since I have seen one

Yes, I have a white 'native' one just appeared in my recently acquired garden. Narrow leaves, small flowers. Fluke?
