Hi Tracey - I don't believe it's the end of your tree but just might weaken it in the interim - think you have done it a bit late and the sap is already rising:

Under a conifer

We've a conifer hedge which was there when we bought the house and it provides good privacy from the neighbour.. I have a border alongside it and I've also got vinca which I'm currently trying to tame as it has run away with itself. There's also hypericum which covers well. I've also got lots of flowers which do fine

Kerb - you may not have spoken for years but did you actually fall out? If not, ,why not go knock and talk - always helps rather than rushing in with officialdom in tow. Is your neighbour even aware of the ivy and the damage it's doing? Good luck

tomato seeds

Hi Terry - had a look too. Wherever you try to 'buy' the vendor in each case is Dobies and the seeds are 'currently unavailable '- sounds to me as though they may have been discontinued. There are also no recent postings about them. I have a friend in Devon who works for Dobies/Suttons - I'll email her and see if she knows anything!  Good luck in your searching too! Janet
