The crocuses look lovely, Panda. Good idea to put them in pots. I once put some in the lawn, but they didn't die back quick enough and OH mowed the lawn and cut off all the leaves, they never came up again! Also, the sparrows chewed all the yellow ones, so I gave up.

"Also of those who have a stream at the bottom of their gardens."

Ohh, me too, but preferably at the bottom of a sloping garden!

Mrs. G, have you got Preview on your laptop? If so you should be able to rotate it in there (look at bar on top), then save.

Tracey, one of those camellias jumped into my trolley at Lidl the other day too!

The label showed a white candy-striped one with red stripes, but two large buds have now opened and they are red! I don't really mind, but the striped one would have been special.

The brugmanwhatsit used to be called datura or angels trumpet, you can get high by chewing the seeds! They are very impressive though.

Strange growth on plumb tree???

Hallo Alan 78

Have a look at this, it's American but they probably have the same problems. Also, if you Google "growths on plum trees" you will get lots of info:

Previous owners might have had a plant/shrub/tree there which they have removed and taken with them and as Edd says, filled the hole and reseeded it.
