dirty bark

Posted: 25/11/2013 at 20:14

I have several mature silver birch trees and the bark on them is dirty looking, any way I can restore them to the peeling clean papier charm??

It was the traders and stall hoders I felt sorry for, all the ones I spoke to were complaining about the ever increasing rent thay had to pay....and they wernt breaking even any longer...this is why there were far fewer stalls and plants for sale, so sad as it was an event I really looked forward to every year. Stacey your doing the right thing believe me! x

Hi to you all and a good 2013 to you, ok I am moving house soon and have a huge garden which will need a gardener, but it has just me and my husband, so we thought maybe make a grass pathway which we can mow and have wild flowers, like poppies,whit daisy and cornflowers either side of the path to form a pretty wild like garden, now how do we create this, do we use seeds, or plugs for the easiest and quickest result?????
