Unstable young birch tree

Posted: 22/03/2013 at 06:55

Im inclined to agree with nut, It might be that the roots are too tight, I would say tease them out somewhat and replant it. How big is the tree now? and how thick is the trunk? 

My tree is dying

Heres is the link guys (I think stephanie just forgot to hit enter after pasting it)



Im not an expert here Stephanie, but did you water the tree before you planted it? Was the hole big enough for the roots to expand? Did you put any compost etc in the hole? 

Also I understood that connifers and fir trees died from the roots & stem first so any dead foliage would show at the middle bit not the tips. Maybe someone else can shed more light on it.

Only problem I have is that the garden waste collections dont start for another 2 weeks and I already have enough garden rubbish & bags to make a second garden. lol

My tubers sprouted just over a week ago. I want to take some cuttings but am a bit wary. I know there are some GW videos on doing it here somewhere.
