    I don't suppose anyone knows what tree this is. Just taken some softwood cuttings from it (too early probably) but thought I'd give it a try now because I love its shape.

    Thank you. Yes, I think hornbeam looks the most likely at the moment:)

    Haha! I do that just before Xmas, trimming back the pine and holly on the local golf course :D It just so happens to tie in with making a hollywreath for my mums front door and my dad’s grave :). I use to be a florist, so I know which bits need pruning. Hehe!

    Growing tomatoes in the conservatory this year to avoid the old Blight.

    Growing well so far. :)

    Picked up my free Gardeners Delight plant from Wyvales yesterday (worth £2.50) to add to my collection of GD, Sungold and Tumbler. (Free to Garden Club loyalty cardholders.)

    Love this time of year, checking each morning what has happened while I was asleep. This little fella suddenly appeared. He’ll be a monster when he wakes up properly I hope. (‘Scuse the weeds :oops:)
