Planting / growing Tree Lilies

Posted: 19/08/2016 at 19:25

They do like decent drainage, all Lilly's do. Bulbs are usually planted early spring and flower first year. If you have decently drained soil they'll over winter quote happily in situ. Decent drainage through is key to survival in soil or pots.

Bottle Brush

Usually done after flowering, light prune only, dead heading and removing damaged wood is the norm. Can't say I come across them that often and not a shrub I really like.

Non flowering nettles are ok, and the only trouble with brambles is the thorns persist and can be equally uncomfortable as fresh brambles.

I think you mean powdery mildew Leila. There are organic solutions which are plentiful with an internet search.

New build lawn, white patches, any ideas?

It's probably because the lawn was laid on top of builders waste. If you lift a section and see what's underneath you'll probably find it. Doubtless it'll be a selection of rubble, bricks waste concrete and other detritus left after they've legged it.

Quince pruning

You treat Quince, the fruit variety Cydonia oblonga the same as pear trees. If you look to the RHS for pruning pears it's the same for Quince.

One of my clients has one Verdun and so far it stays put. Personally I can't stand it.

Bulkerb, they've yet to make Kevlar gloves. Being a gardener means living with the thorns,stings, cuts and bruises etc as part of the job. Hard hands is the best defence as well as being careful. A bit of pain never killed anyone.
