I have a number of gardens in my archive but I cannot see how to see them or to reinstate a garden if I need to.

Re: What is this blue-flowered shrub trained against a wall?

from Ann Balmforth

How strange :-) My suggestion was a blue flowered Hydrangea, perhaps Hydrangea serrata 'Diadem', but only down to -15. Many Hydrangeas turn pink in alkaline soil so you have to choose carefully. Below -15 you could plant Buddleja davidii.

If the temperature goes below -10 (= -15 deg) as an alternative, assuming that your soil is acidic.

It is up side down but I think it is one of the Ceanothus. The RHS website has 4 that flower in the summer

Re: Identify this?

It is difficult without a photo of the whole tree, but it could be one of the Sorbus cultivars.
