Our squirrels nick our apples, but leave the magnolia alone.  Hopefully there will be a few blooms left when he returns

4 landrovers full of manure later....think i should have enough to finishing all the mulching this weekend now.  My first tulip buds are appearing and my new Molly peony(courtesy of Fidget) has 5 flower buds ......getting very exciting

Hope the tree went on straight Panda - otherwise you feel like there is a gale permanently howling through your room

Help - Massive Bramble problem

Posted: 03/04/2015 at 12:34

I've been doing similar to Gemma - my problem brambles are growing through other plants (large established azaleas) that I don't want to lose, so spraying is not an option.  Instead I cut each stem back as far as I can reach and then poke in a bit of pipecleaner soaked in SBK.  Took ages, as quite fiddly, but so far all is looking dead and no regrowth.  Only did it about 6 weeks ago though, so time will tell.

theres a thread on here somewhere where I got the advice

AWB click ok on the error message and then wait 30 seconds ....the pictures then load as normal.  There is a glitch, but you can work round it.

thanks for the japanese cherry info Joybell Very pretty.  Gardens looking great pdoc and wintersong - you can see how much time and effort you put into them.  

I love seeing other people's gardens
