    The first looks like a medlar and second could be oregano or marjoram ....do the leaves smell when you crush them?

    I couldn’t remember the name of medlar at first either - so I googled “fruit that looks like dogs arse” and bobs your uncle 🤣🤣🤣

    I wonder if the second one is tea tree, Leptospermum?

    I've answered the second one on your other post garden geek. Crassula sarcocaulis.

  • The first one is a medlar. The flowers in the spring, the fruit in the autumn and then the colourful foliage following on.
    Medlar jelly and jam is wonderful.
