Tree needing love

Posted: 12/09/2016 at 07:53

I've enlarged the picture and it looks like a weeping cheery,

i agree with dove get rid of the rocks the tree will suffer and make sure you water, it will be competing with the Leylandi. Not a good place for it really , I would be inclined to wait until it's dormant and then dig it up and put somewhere else.

I like the new one hour programme, also Monty he is down to earth and tells us about gardening that we can understand. I love the way he shows us when fruit and veg are ready to pick and usually try's them has he goes, just like most of us do, and Nell and Nigel bring in something special to the programme.

keep up the good work G/W love it !!!

Love it And I see you have got a cloud tree beside it, I'm just in the process of greating  one of thease. I think patience is what is needed, did you buy the Buddha and cloud tree or did you construct them from the begining ?

Pods on my magnolia tree

A good crop of scale insects and the magnolia looks quite large it might be a major job to remove the scale. I find the only methods that work are take them off manually or brush mentholated spirit on them.

the white one is white star an absolute stunner, im still growing that one this year.
