Second night running damage to the lawn,the Badgers are back.

i think it's going to be one of those days now I cannot upload the photo,it keeps coming up with a lot of signs and words and yes I have pressed ok and it just does it again !!!!!!!!

if the forum doesn't get this sorted soon they will be one member less,it's very frustrating.

My ferns have not come back to life yet, try to be patient.

i do leave my leaves on the ferns over winter as I think this protects them,I don't remove them until I can see new growth appearing.

3 for ID please

But it might not be dead!!!!!!!

My friend last year cut her large ceanothus down to about 2 foot from the ground and it put on nice new growth and looks very healthy this year,

what have you got to lose if it's dead it's not going to put on new growth but if there is still life in the bottom it might reshoot. Worth a try.
