Hibiscus Handling

Mine's never been pruned so has new growth every year. I don't think that is it but then...I've got no flowers! Maybe I shall prune part of the bush and see what happens next year - seems a shame as it is a lovely shape and size and I can't justify it  

North facing wall

The climbing hydrangea would be a good choice. It will take it a litlle while to cling to the wall itself so a little help may be needed at first. You would need as big a planter and you could manage and need to remember to feed and water it regularly.

WHAT IS IT

a picture would be good...could be privet or elder or something else. What size are the berries and how are they arranged?

Cutting back a cherry tree

Posted: 03/08/2013 at 10:46

Cherry trees are best summer pruned to avoid disease. Prune now. 

can you name this plant please

Posted: 03/08/2013 at 10:41

I too say honeysuckle. What colour were the flowers? There must have been a lovely scent and the bees etc would have visited for nectar. What a beautiful plant!

Hi Jatnikapyar, The following link might help to answer why your frogs have died. It is not uncommon to lose frogs in the summer - sad though it is...

unknown tree

These suckers have come up in my lawn, greenhouse and borders from a tree 2 doors away. I just cut them down with the lawn mower or loppers depending where they are. They get quite woody at the base and can be broken off the shallow roots. I've never tried any weedkiller but would be interested to hear how you get on if you try...

I agree with Nutcutlet. These suckers pop up in my garden from a poplar tree 2 gardens away - look around you for either the tree or a stump, ask a neighbour if one has been cut down recently.

Never been pruned. Bought it in flower about 3 years ago and only ever had 1 flower each year....its put on growth, is disease free, resides in a sheltered part of the garden, gets good sun... I just don't understand it
