Sulphur Chips for maple trees

Posted: 19/10/2017 at 22:09

I was wondering if someone could help me, I watched a recent Gardner’s world in which they talked about tree care. 


At one point they talked about putting sulphur chips on the ground in March / April to produce strong autumn colours come October. 


I have neutral soil and have a young (4 meter) October glory maple that I want to get the most out of. Can anyone offer any advice on what sulphur chips to use and how much? 


Obvisouly I don’t want to damage the tree of near by hedge. 


Regards

Help, what is this alien?

I have found this on the leaves on my pear tree, it produced barely any fruit this year and I imagine this is the reason. 


Firstly can anyone tell me what it is? But also, how have I caught it, can I get rid of it, and will it effect other plants. 


The pours of this fungus are now pouring out of the leaves. 


Thanks for any help

Hi Everyone,

I have a medium sized garden and I am quite new to the gardening world , however having said that I know the design I want and how I want it to look in general. 

However I am looking for some kind of tool(software) that can guide me on what plants will work where I want them, taking into account, facing direction, size, location etc etc...... any suggestions?

Moss

Posted: 18/09/2013 at 00:24

I want to build a bed using masses of bulbs, of various varities. However mud is not nice to look at, what is best to use when covering a bed you don't want mud being shown?

I was thinking moss, but was worried it would damage the bulbs?

Or grass, but this would need to be short growing grass if that is even possible. I like the look of moss when if grows in pots on its own, but how easy is it to buy and grow?

 

Help

Hi everyone,

I am in need of a little advice, I am looking for a good trailing perennial evergreen. I am wanted something to flow down a set of steps at a hight of about 5 feet.

Flowers would be a plus, and white flowers would be even better,I am looking for something with good coverage and plenty of foliage for year round greenery.

Any thoughts?

Chris
