ceanothus removal

Posted: 25/07/2013 at 19:53

I have dug 4 evergreen ceanothus up from my front garden. I Removed the main root ball which was a difficult job but there was still deep long roots that i couldnt fully remove. My question is will it come back. I am turfing over the top of this and to be quite honest it would be impossible from me to get much more of the root out. The reason i dug them out is that i live in a newbuild house and they planted by the builders but they were overgrown with weeds that i could not fully remove and they looked tatty.

clematis leaf problem

After i commented on this thread one of my clematis started to look damaged. Its cleamtis the president. It had a few buds its this year one opened but not long after went completely limp. the plant is only 1 year old. All the other buds have gone limp now and the plant had black markings on its leaves and just looks a bit sorry for itself, we had very strong wind and monsoon like rain, is it that or is it wilt.

The reasons theres no guides is they patiented and your not allowed to propagate them but the sufinia you buy is propagated by cuttings the seeds dont come true.
