Cutting back Choisya

Posted: 06/02/2016 at 14:31

Last summer, when clearing my garden of unwanted trees, shrubs and overgrown ivy, I had to cut my two Choisyas back to about a foot from their bases, to get to the ivy that had become entwined in the shrubs. My garden was out of bounds all summer while building work was being carried out, and it's only now I've seen the two Choisyas are still just bare stumps with no signs of new leafage. Is there any hope for them? Luckily one of the cuttings I took has survived, but it'd be a shame for these to have died.

Can anyone tell me the name of a shrub that has clusters of small, blue, ball shaped flowers?

Since this morning my four salvia wils sage plants have been reduced to skeletons. Any idea what's eaten them, and how to treat/salvage the plants?

It's a shame plant eating bugs don't like ivy!! I'll try the Roundup tho...

Someone told me today the same about the wire, but she said to sprinkle bloodmeal on top of the compost as they can't stand the smell - I'll try anything!!

Last summer squirrels ruined most of my pots, small and large, by constantly digging massive holes in the compost, thereby digging up all the plants. What's the best way of deterring them?

My garden has been overtaken by ivy, and it's now creeping it's way over all the brickwork of house and garage. We've tried every year to get rid of it, but it comes back all the more determined to take over! Any ideas?
