It's Goat Willow, Salix caprea. Self-seeded, as they have everywhere this year.

Is this a Cotoneaster?

Comment from Sheila Robertson

In forum: Identify a plant

I found this in the garden and I’d like to know what it is. I think it might be a weeping Cotoneaster but as it’s so young I can only identify it by the leaf. I did take a few cuttings from my parents garden but I’m not sure if this is it. My brother in law also has discovered the same plant in his garden. Can you help?

The first bush is a spirea. Needs little care. Cutback at root level to control size.
The last bush is a cotoneaster.

copying a plant list to a new plan

Question from Roz Cochrane

In forum: How to use the site

Hi, does anyone know how to copy a plant list from one file and a drawing from a different file? To be clearer I have just drawn up a garden in a file but realise I didn't copy the plants from my master plan first as you are supposed to - is there anyway to join them together on the same file to save me manually entering each plant again? thanks

Please help to identify this plant. It's possibly acacia family?

Comment from Nic Jennings

In forum: Identify a plant

I took these photos some years back but have never found a satisfactory id. It is a shrub that was growing beside a busy road in north eastern Greece - definitely an alien.
The flowers were purple bracts with yellow stamens protruding arranged not unlike a bottle brush.

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi Fiona, welcome to gardening and to Shoot! A very helpful follower on our social media think this is

"Viburnum Birkwoodii x"and another agrees "You pipped me to it! My dad had one in his garden"
"Beautiful! scent ... smells like jasmin"

Other suggestions are" Viburnum variety, it looks like a Viburnum plicatum Mariesii"

"Spice viburnum"
"I would say viburnum carlesii."

"Looks like Viburnum carlesii also known as arrowwood."
"Viburnum burkwoodii?"
"Viburnum carlesii or Viburnum carlecephyllum, methinks."

"Arrowood, also called Korean spice (like the comments above it is in the Viburnum category) It has red buds then blooms to a pretty pink flower like in your picture and then produces a small red fruit that ripens to a black color in autumn!"

"And super fragranced too... a couple of clients have had them... gorgeous!"
"Such pretty flowers"

Hope that helps?

Happy Easter weekend.

Weeping Cherry

Message from Sandie Lyne

In forum: Trees and shrubs


Your daughter’s new Prunus will be perfectly happy in a large container. Ensure the container has a good 5 inches of space all around and at least that underneath and above. Use John Innes No#3 mixed with some multipurpose compost - 3 parts JI3 to compost, also add perlite for aeration and grit to ensure good drainage. Once planted out gravel over the surface to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Most importantly, do not let the tree dry out completely but also do not overwater! One good soak per week is better than a dribble every day! If there is very hot weather water as needed. Feed with a liquid fertiliser (Seaweed based is good) once a month during the growing season. Prune in summer not winter. It should be happy for several years. After which you can scrape off the top layer and add fresh JI3/compost. Hope this helps. Best regards, Happy Easter!

Cotoneaster tree query

Message from Sheryll jerred

In forum: Garden design

We planted an 8/10 standard in 2012, it’s very quickly grown into a wide round headed tree, We are using it to screen as you can see from the image. It’s planted just over a metre from the boundary but our neighbours still need to prune it occasionally.
It’s on poor chalky builders rumble soil and it’s still grown to large proportions quickly.
I’m no garden designer, however I feel for your position it may be better for you to consider a shrub which could be pruned more easily to the shape and size you require.
When we were buying trees, the pot size generally relates to the age and size of the tree, bare root are cheaper again but best be quick the season is Nov-March , these are basically grown in the ground and dug up when you order. Not all trees are available bare root though!
Hope this is of some help to you

Nearly infinite number to choose from. Suggest you choose according to usual criteria e.g
Aspect, ease of cultivation, personal preferences, recommended by R.H.S. etc.

E.g. starting with A. ..for container in sun Agapanthus.....

Tall open aspect in sun. ..Aster Michaelmas Daisy.

Include summer bulbs too.

Wonderful opportunity. I'm really envious.
