Advice on 'Limelight' patio apple tree, if anyone has one?

Question from Anna

In forum: Container gardening

Just got a Limelight (on M27 stock), as above; my first fruit tree attempt. The seller assures me it is self fertile, so no pollinator companion tree required. However, an internet search for this variety reveals confusing results. Some sites say its self-sterile, others say partially self-fertile and I don't know what to believe? Can anyone enlighten me from their experience/knowledge?

Add a plant to my plant list

Question from Frank Barker

In forum: How to use the site

I can never find the feature for adding the details of a plant which I've just added to my garden. Why isn't it on the 'My Plants' list?

Question from Janet Windle

In forum: Trees and shrubs

I have three sarcoccuses around the garden, and they all look as if something has nibbled off their flowers, which ought to be scenting beautifully just now. - just little bare stumps at the end of the leaves. Any ideas as to what the problem can be please?

Please can anyone tell me what this pretty plant is?

Question from KATHRYN STEELE

In forum: Identify a plant

I believe I may have grown this from sees, although not certain, and it's plant label has been lost . I would love to know what it is, as its a lovely cheerful sight in these dark winter days. It's certainly very hardy! Thank you
