I am looking to buy a low hedge(no taller than 2ft) to cover 18ft in a straight line.

 

I have searched the internet high and wide to find how many i will need to plant, how long it will take to establish and grow and also the cost!

Any advice will be welcome of types and what to buy?

 

Thanks!

On Wednesday 12th June 2013 my family and I learned that one of my younger sisters had lost her young daughter, Myla Rose. Various medical complications occurred the same evening to which time stood still for what seemed like forever. My sister Chloe was rushed to intensive care where she made a full recovery over the following days. I was by her side every minute of the way until I knew deep down that she was going to be ‘ok’.

Returning home it was a perfect time for me to clear my head and try to come to terms of what had happened to Myla Rose. What better way than a walk around the garden? The garden which I know like the back of my hand, my garden!

Once I got to my rose boarder it became apparent that ONE of my roses had flowered a magnificent yellow rose. Instinctively I assumed this must be a sign?

The funeral of Myla Rose took place on Thursday 27th June 2013. What a beautiful peaceful send off for a young girl who has gone too soon. 14 close family and friends lay a single pink rose as a symbol of togetherness.

The following day I plucked the energy on my day off to do some pruning, weeding and watering. Drawn to the rose boarder, I had to see how the single rose was getting on and if it had any company. A full boarder of yellow roses, but one. The one that had flowered the day of Mylas passing is now showing blemishes of pink!

What might sound like a naive thing to say as I know there is a scientific reason for everything but today I have found comfort, from a rose.

Please feel free to explain why the rose may have started to turn pink because every year before this hasn’t happened and I haven’t changed anything!

 

Best Wishes

Haha this is next doors shed. The tree is already causing damage to the roof. Would it be a bad decision to get rid?

Thank you all for your responses!

 

By process of elimination i think it's safe to say that next doors oak tree (see photo below) may be the culprit with a little help from Mr. Squirrel!

 

I only have a 60ft X 35ft garden therefore no room here! I'm sure i'll find somewhere to sneak them in and allow nature to gradually take its course!

Good evening all,

 

I am new to this forum and have decided to jump in at the deep end 

 

Could someone please enlighten me as to what plant this is above? Three have come through this year next to some perennials and I am baffled at to what they could be?

Cheers

 

Chris
