I'd move it when dormant jo. You won't have to struggle with the foliage that way.

Can you identify this fruit?

They may have dried out Maurice, water them copiously and then leave them alone, they'll come back next year.

Cornelly, wisteria are pruned up to 3 times a year, I've been doing this a while you know. All your'e doing now is cutting back the new excess growth, your'e not doing the spring prune.

Wild Flower Meadow

Posted: 22/08/2015 at 11:20

Having created wildflower beds and meadows for clients, I've found the best way so far is clearing the ground in early spring with weed killer. After a week the weeds will have absorbed the weedkiller and I dig it over as preparing for a new lawn. Rake to a fine tilthe and then sow your preferred seed mix. Lightly raking the seed into the soil. A good watering and then let it get on with it.

 This was done in a prepared bed and is still in flower now. It has already self seeded and will be cut in a few weeks time.

Dogs and Manure

I used to have spaniels, to them, horse manure, fresh, was a doggy delicacy as was the odd fresh bit of cat poo. Not to my taste. especially when they came to you afterwards expecting to lick you stupid! I could never deter them as they found it long before I was close to spotting it.

No you don't leave them, cut them back to 3 leaf axils. One of my clients has two huge wisteria's takes me 2 days to do the pruning on it.

useful non- gardening tools.

Pallet knife for close quarter hoeing. Get's into tight spots where a hoe can't go. Also good for getting between slabs before re pointing.

How much to charge...
