The electrical connections to the mains under the wall look rather insignificant!

Another collecting evergreen cuttings day for Burncoose with six black bags to go including some particularly prickly hollies which they will not like at all.We took cuttings from Stewartia pteropetiolata which we know will root but there are plenty of good seed pods forming all of which look fertile.

Crabiodendron yunnanense (record tree) has had only a few very late flowers some 20 feet up in the crown of the tree. We have seen this tree set seed lower down but it has proved easy from cuttings. The flowers are pieris like and normally much better than they look here.
