Ceanothus life span?

Posted: 26/07/2014 at 15:22

Thank you for all your replies.

  I've cut parts of it  back about 6 -  8" or so and the branches aren't looking exactly dead on the inside .   Will give it until the autumn to see what happens to it.

Can't remember the name of it (too long ago)   - but it looks like Autumnal Blue.   It grows (grew!) upright and then sort of cascaded like a weeping willow.

I've had a ceanothus for 25 years or more but today it looks very dry, withered and almost dead.  Algae is growing on the branches.   I'm thinking it's probably dying - how long are they supposed to live?    Any advice much appreciated.

Oops - I seem to have posted in the wrong box so I've done it again in "plants".   Can't see how to delete this post.

Met this lovely chap yesterday at Furzey Gardens.   He didn't say much but you could tell he knew all about gardening.

strange scrapy-type holes in lawn.

Thank you - I wonder if a light sprinkling of Zoo Poo would make them think twice

strange scrapy-type holes in lawn.

Posted: 21/09/2012 at 09:50

For the last few weeks, we've been waking up to find shallow scrapes/holes appearing in our front lawn.     It just happens at night.   We were wondering what creature would be doing this - foxes?  hedgehogs?        We do have urban foxes so I'm thinking it might be them - but why?

 

Any ideas?   

GW competitions.

I keep on entering these competitions, hoping to win something one day but it's just not happening .     

Does anyone actually win?   Anything?   Ever  ??
