When can I move box hedge?

Thanks Nutcutlet.  I think I will list at the beginning of September then it's up to the buyer when they come and dig them up.

Thanks Ladybird, I did find that on another site as well.  Feel a bit mean digging it up but it takes up quite a bit of our garden and hopefully someone else will get the benefit!

We have an established box hedge which runs around one of the flower beds in our garden.  The beds are just too much work so I was going to have a go at selling the box on eBay (on the condition that the buyer digs it up!).


When would be the best time to move it?

Overgrown Clematis

Posted: 21/02/2015 at 18:17

We've got a very overgrown clematis in a corner of the garden.  The stems are thick and woody and it extends to the top of the fence and along it.  I'm fairly certain that it flowers after June.

When would be the best time to prune it?  Also, how exactly should I prune it?  Have watched Monty on YouTube and he recommends about 30cms from the ground but his plant is a spindly thing in comparison and the clematis in our garden is a bit of a monster!

Many thanks

 

 

When can I prune out of control rose bush?

Dove, that is exactly what I was after, thank you.  Will have a look at his other videos.  Far easier that trying to make sense of a book!

This isn't the first time you have come to my rescue!

Thank you

Yes, I'd rather tidy it up.  It does have flowers on it but is looking very straggly and messy.

I'm quite nervous about pruning.  What's the best approach for a novice?!

I have a rose bush which is growing up a fence/trellis which is currently flowering small pink flowers.  Is it totally out of control and is shortly going to pull the fence down!

When can I prune it?

I did have a go last year and some of the stems are brown and dead...

Moving Daffodils?

Thanks everyone.  It doesn't sound too complicated - even for me! 

I think I will re-pot them straight away otherwise they will end up languishing in the shed!

Thanks Verdun

Is a general purpose compost okay for the pots?  I'm guessing that I transplant them with leave still intact to let them completely die down.  I also guess that it doesn't matter too much where I put the pots (outside).

 

 

Moving Daffodils?

We've got some Daffodils in one of our front borders that I would like to move.  (They look quite messy and in the wrong place.)

Would ideally like to transplant them into pots for next year.  What's the best way to do this?  I haven't touched them so they are still dying down.

Gardening novice so idiot instructions required!

Many thanks
