Archiepem I too remember HOW. It was with carol vorderman when I watched and Fred, something can not think of his last name. If anyone knows.

I can not belive nobody has said Rainbow, I keep hearing the tune now on tv its being used on an advert.

Anyone remember button moon? Portland Bill? Raggy Dolls?


Can you identify this shrub for me.

Thanks Dove, Very good info, RHS say's it can reach 23ft and I can belive it.! I like the idea of doing topiary on it. I have always wanted to have a go. But then again it is at the front

I will have to get cutting's next year, I would love a row of these as a hedge.

This shrub is in my front garden it about 7ft tall topped, but i think it could go bigger, its very dence and bushy & has a red bark. It was here when I moved in, It's my favourite shrub/ hedge in the front, but unfortunately when I have the drive made wider, this is the first thing to go as it's next to the gate post.

I would really like to get cuttings from it, if anyone knows the best time to do this that would be great.


Nobody told me racoons like Christmas cactus.

I'm glad you said that FB, I was thinking i'm sure we dont have racoons.

Otnorot thats alot of racoons, are you allowed to shoot them. I thought americans are encouraged to shoot them or trap them. They are a real pest for you guys.

I forgot about this thread.. Well I can update I have had great results, from the the bag method on the windowsill. The one's I left in rainwater rooted after a couple of weeks, they was potted on and are doing great.

Gardenia I'm not sure about this late in the year but hopefully Brumbull will come back. You might need some sort of heat in the soil. Are they inside or outside?

Brumbull that's a method I will try next year, What time of year do you do that?

 The one on the left is from the rainwater jar (delta sarah). The midde one is MsB suggestion from with the bag on the window (alice hoffman) On the right is from the water jar but is missing it label, strange. So will have to wait for it to flower before I find out. The one with the most growth has to be the one that spent its early days with covered with a bag

Is It Bay or Laural related?
