Are these damsons or sloes please?

I'm sure you are right about Buckthorn, but nobody but you has mentioned Buckthorn. The thread is about sloes, etc. I don't think they can be mistaken for anything else.

Yes, do watch out for the blackthorns, they seem to fester if you get them in your hands.

We got an almost free Alton wooden greenhouse. We have dismantled and rebuilt it about four times now. Had to replace quite a lot of glass as a result of carelessness and winter storms, but worth every penny the new glass cost.

Sloe/blackthorn bushes grow into trees. Not sure what Cangrandmafixit is talking about. Bullace, damson and sloes are all edible.

Sloe and apple jelly is delicious with roast lamb.

Seed Suppliers who Sell Small Amounts of Seeds

There are some companies that consistently produce seeds that germinate well, and are reasonable in price. If they can do it why can't all of them?

hyacinth bulbs

Prepared bulbs, yes. They need to be in the dark and cool until the flowerhead appears, not just until they sprout. They need to believe that Winter has passed.

Sorry Wills, I have given up on T&M their seeds are expensive and their germination rate poor.
