I just moved into a house and its the first time I have my own garden, there aren't many plants in the garden but I'm struggling to figure out what this one is. Can anybody help?
I think it might be a broom, proper name Cytisus...
(I also think I put this in the wrong forum by mistake, oops)
Don't worry about which forum to put it on - we find most queries.
Just a word of warning about broom - it really doesn't like being cut back very hard - see an earlier discussion here http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/plants/pruning-a-broom/2978.html
I cut mine back by about one third after flowering each year. It is ok with that
Put a photo up next year if you remember Emma. It's great having pic's of people's gardens
It's a bit lacking in leaf for this time of year, check it's not dead
