She's growing in an urn which I made for lupins..and this is my only clue
Looks a bit like Goat Willow.
See this is why Latin names ARE useful. I'd never heard of Goat Willow. Just been to look it up. I HAVE heard of Salix caprea though.
We all have them! I'm guessing it will need to be moved out of the pot then if it's going to be a tree.
Thank you everyone. I'm really pleased to have this solved!
It'll grow 6- 10 metres. Very good for butterflies and moths, but you'll need lots of space. It's not just the height is the breadth the branches take up.
Never thought I'd get told off so pompously for not using scientific names, Quercus! Perhaps a knowledge of common English names would prove useful to you in communicating with the uneducated masses. I take it your alternative spelling of robur (or maybe rubra) is a deliberate pun of some sort.
I'd think this was the solution to my mystery tree (see my photos and thread) if it were not that I haven't spotted any catkins. I suppose they would have appeared by now (after five years)?
