  • tree help

    Hi guys,

    i have a tree in my garden and i have a few questions about it. it was there when we moved in so i have no idea what kind it is.

    The first thing is it seems to have two completely different sets of leaves and kind of looks like two different trees.

    the second is that it has one little fruit on it and i have no idea what it is? any help would be great.

    Hi Lisa, from the leaves it does look like two different trees. What is the stem (or trunk) like? Is there just one, and the different leaves come from that? If so it could be one of the "family" fruit trees which have two or more varieties grafted onto one stem. Couldn't recognise the "fruit" from your picture, sorry

          Hi Starbright

          Not absolutely sure but this might give you some pointers to do an internet search and compare to your plants:

          The shrub with the fruit reminds me of ornamental quince (Chaenomeles)

          The other shrub immediately made me think of Elder (Sambucus).

          I have a new to me garden too this year and it is fun trying to work out what the plants are that have appeared unprompted, but at least I didn't inherit any shrubs/trees to identify.

          All the best in your research.
