Mountain ash problem

Posted: 28/05/2014 at 23:15

I had a tree surgeon around to look at my willow (which has to be taken down) and we were talking  over trees. He took a look at my rowan  and my whitebeam and commented that the Sorbus family (of which both are members) die a slow death....both of mine are healthy at the moment but it makes me wonder about yours. He didn't say why they die this way, when he comes back to fell my cracked willow I'll ask him some more.

Best Thornproof Gloves

Yes a bit pricey but worth every penny when I'm cutting my hawthorn hedge - Goldleaf tough touch gloves recommended by RHS.

Rotavating

Usually rotovators can just break up the roots and make the whole thing worse. I would cut down the unwanted growth and then get some old carpet and cover the part of the area you want to clear. You say wildlife garden - the wildlife will love the cow parsley and the hogwort.

It looks to me that it is something the birds have planted - probably a wild cherry...not worth keeping me thinks.

Where abouts in the country are you? Could the flowers have been hit by a frost? 

Victoria Plum Tree

I have to say it doesn't look good Picksey. THe green on the stem is algae and nothing to do with frost. Any sign of new leaves coming through. Look at the buds carefully and see how healthy they look.
