Looks to be a tree sucker to me too. Any big trees in next door's or even a couple of doors down. The white poplar, next door but one to me, pops up suckers all over my lawn.

Update on my tree...


. I



I have noticed in the last couple of weeks dieback has become much more significant. Wondering if I should cut out affected branches to stop it spreading. Any thoughts?

Hope you have a wonderful day. I think anyone who opens their garden to the public is very brave. Gardens are so personal and some people can have very strong feelings on particular styles and express their opinions. Some people are also very light fingered when it comes to a cutting or too! 

However, the majority of us are only too pleased to enjoy a lovely garden such as yours Bizzie Lizzie appreciate and admire the hard work that has gone into it; enjoy your space with a cup cake and cup of tea for the afternoon leaving only with refreshed enthusiasm, inspiration and a full tum!  

Good luck and I hope you raise pots of money

Fox cubs are out and about and probably smell the fertiliser you put around the new plants thinking it was food. Blood, fish, bone etc. As the smell diminishes and they realise there is nothing worth digging for, they will probably stop. Laying twigs/branches with thorns/prickles on around the plants will deter them -eg. holly or wire mesh laid across the soil or just under it - it doesn't look very attactive might help them move on too.
