Cut through power cable on hedge trimmer

Posted: 29/06/2017 at 17:39

Trouble now is that Bosch (maybe the only ones who do this) have included one screw on the machine which cannot be undone without a special tool;. So getting inside to replace the wires is very difficult.

Can you help?

Those leaves look remarkably like those of Hydrangea quercifolia to me.

Was it perhaps Nicandra physalodes? aka the Shoo fly plant

Freesia laxa used to be called Anomatheca laxa and before that Lapeyrousia.They are not related to the Triteleia (used to be Brodiaea) laxa.

Triteleia laxa does take a while to reach flowering size. I have some clumps which are now in their third year and not ready to flower this season. Possibly grown in pots and heavily fed, they may flower quicker.

Sorry, but in my garden this is a seed weed of the first order. Comes up in its hundreds and has even changed colour in places. We must have thousands of them and they even survive being turfed out by the moles.

Seeds, if produced, are best sown fresh when slightly under ripe. Leave therm exposed to the weather and they should them germinate in spring. They take a few years to reach flowering size.

Shade and water is what they need. Try to keep the roots cool. They hate having their feet overheat.

Agree. One of the easier shrubs to root.

Easiest way is to peg down some of the lower branches into the soil in the gap which you want to fill. Keep watered and they root like that very easily.
