All my post reminders are going in my spam box!! I have now stopped them and click on followed threads to catch up on threads I am interested in.

However I have been typing away some beautiful replies and then hit a button near the back space button and I lose the whole lot!! Not sure which button I am hitting but very very frustrating  - if I could have found a face with steam coming out of ears I would have posted it !

Identify please

Could you give us a bit more detail about your garden in order for you to get better answers. We all have our favourite shrubs but not all will be suitable for your garden so....what part of the country are you in? What is your soil like - sandy, clay etc? What is the the ph of your soil - if you don't know, look in gardens around you if there are rhododendrons and camellias growing then it will be acidic. Is you gadren exposed to high winds or a wind tunnel? What kind of feel are you after - formal or cottage garden feel ...How much shade does your shady border get? 

Tree and bush dieback

There is very little else you can do about this. Ceanothus seems to be prone to this. Mine came into bud, half the bush died, the other half flowered and then died! I pruned but to no avail, unfortunately

What part of the country are you in? Do you have acidic soil - have a look around other gardens if you are not sure. Rhododendrons, camellias, pieris being grown is usually a sign of acidic soil.

Cistus pruning ?

Posted: 02/09/2013 at 15:43

You can do this now. If you leave it until much later in the year it will find it difficult to recover before winter starts. Do not prune it back too hard as you might lose it. I have never lost one but always take cuttings just in case!

It seems that you should be taking some of the good advice you have been giving out

One of the big problems today is people do not like being told "NO" they dont like being told what to do for the best, and the same people have problem after problem.

 

You appear to be having problem after problem not with the content of your messages but the manner in which they have been written and people on the forum have tactfully pointed this out to you.

It sounds like it is now up to you to take on board your own advice and observations and those of the board and see if you can sow your seeds more productively...
