  1. Oh dear Sue, I’m guessing this isn’t good? I do think the tree following meme is a great idea though :-)

  2. Do you use the medlars for anything Sue?, I'd like a dwarf one but need to create a little more space x

    1. We've only ever used the fruit once to make medlar jelly, Jo. I wouldn't really grow a medlar for it's fruit.

  6. I only once ate medlar fruit, Sue. It was in Spain where these trees are many. Is really your climate goes well to medlal?

  7. I made the mistake of planting our medlar in a corner of the garden which occasionally gets hit by wind. If only we all had walled gardens! Imagine how beautiful that foliage would look!

  8. It's a shame that the fruit doesn't get used but I have to say that it's not the most attractive or appetising fruit.
