            Don't know how I missed these two Primulas out. They're 2 of my favourites, although they look similar they are different.

              Euphorbia Black pearl with Pittosporum tom thumb , they should really match up soon Euphorbia BP has a very dark centre and P.tom thumb new growth has lime colour leaves . Lots and lots of allium as well.

                    Yeah they have been always the same, skin is very thick when you cut them open and the fruits are a bit knobbly.
                    It was supposed to be "four seasons" which I think is another name for "eureka", but I'm not so sure it is.
                    Too small, but that could be because its pot grown, but wondering if its citron or something very similar

                      That very thick pith makes me think of citron too @pete - I found a nursery in Germany that sells a wide range of citrus - Citrus plants | Fruit Trees | Plants |
                      they have some hybrid lemons that are sort of in between
                      Is the acacia pravissima?

                        Looks very similar to a smaller version of the lemon they use for making Limoncello.

                          Yes A. pravissima, lost my large tree to the winds a few years ago, so a smaller one just getting going.

                            This is a small part of our wild area where the colour has just started coming through
                            P1470661.JPG

                            Difficult to see but this Fuschia is a pinkish off white that looks as though it will open soon. It's about 8ft high.

                            Our bay tree looks as though it needs another prune. We let it go too far last time and had to cut 20ft off it.

                              I thought the pravisimma looked smaller than I seen before!

                              The one I bought a few years ago was a Myers Lemon which is Lemon/Mandarin hybrid with a completely smooth skin.
                              The other one which has a ripening fruit is a true lemon.
