Black garden after Evergreen 4 in 1.

Posted: 23/07/2016 at 13:48

Did you push a fork down a few cm deep all over the areas you tried to re-seed? If not, the seed is probably sitting in an unsuitable place, or has been eaten by birds. Also, how soon did you do this after the patches appeared? As already said, you need to wait a month or so before re-seeding. You also need to ensure the seed is kept moist at all times - the occasional rain shower isn't enough.

And I'll emphasise that: hawkweek is a small plant with completely different leaves, growing not 3 metres from me as I type.

Very sick mature bay tree

I notice it seems to be on a border - is there any chance it has been damaged by a neighbour's digging?

My first thought would be has the graft failed?

Mysterious passionflower death

Have you checked the pot for vine weevils? C-shaped white grubs, about 1 cm, with a dark "head"? They will cause this kind of collapse by eating the plant's roots.

Clematis armandii

Even if it does it will recover. It can be a bit pernickety for the first year, but once it has a good root system you won't be able to stop it. It's a lovely plant.

Sad front garden

The quick fix on your neighbour's bushes is food and water - try a couple of cans of general fertilizer, and I think you'll see a difference.

Have you had any strong winds lately? If they were very strong through the trellis they might affect it, as I've found it to be happiest on a warm wall.

Laburnum die back

It should be fine in any soil. The one thing it doesn't like is being waterlogged.

Do asiatic lillies rebloom?

Only one set of blooms per stem, I'm afraid - that's your lot until next year. Remove spent flowers unless you want the seeds, and feed a bit while dying back to plump up the bulbs for next year. They'll vanish quite quickly.
