I have only one question Linda, is that leyllandi on the left?

If it is you will have trouble getting anything decent to grow next to it!

They suck up so many nutrients from the soil, improving soil next to it will only encourage more growth in the leyllandi.

Their root systems will spread 4-5 meters into your garden and out compete anything you plant.

If they are yours I would halt any improvements till they can be taken out.

I agree Verdun, we should take this opportunity to name and shame some of the more disreputable companies who bombard us with glossy brochures which when purchased from turn out to be poor value or poor quality.

A witch hunt it would not be, and to share good service and value is beneficial to all, especially when times are tight.

We all take pride in our gardens and work hard to achieve them.

Personal recommendations are always the best form of advertising any company can get.

An informal list of quality suppliers who promote good service and value for money will encourage those who currently do not reach the same standards.

Air Layering - Is this progress?

Posted: 09/11/2013 at 20:32

Try semi ripe cutting next spring Niscars very simple process. Try taking a few Hardwood cuttings now, and some soft wood in the spring. A mixture of all three should give you plenty to repopulate your hedge.

Air Layering - Is this progress?

That is definately fungus! air layering requires a closed environment around the cut, yours looks open.

Why though you are doing this with laurel though mistifies me, hardwood/softwood cuttings take readily with laurel.
