lilac tree cuttings

Posted: 21/05/2013 at 17:55

Hi Nikki I have successfully grown two Lilac trees grown from cuttings, I just pulled new shoots off dipped them in rooting powder and potted them up,  I have got these in large pots. As you can see it is flowering very well and the perfume is lovely. I have had them for about 5 years and they flower like this every year.

I still use my Dads garden spade and fork. I can always remember him using them even when I was a child. He has been gone 24 years now and I have no idea how old they are but I treasure them and miss him dreadfully.

What are the fields of yellow flowers I see everywhere now? " />

I call them sunshine fields because they always look so sunny and bright.

We visited the Keukenhof in Holland in April. It was a beautiful sight to see, so many tulips, just breathtaking, and the perfume from the Hyacinths was just unbelievable.

Hi Gail welcome to the site. I have left the greenfly to the wildlife and have found this works perfectly too, the blue tits do a brilliant job. If you have any questions about plants etc there are some very knowledgeable people on this site to help you out. I have called on their services many times. Hope you have a great time in your garden

Communal garden - council keeps destroying our plants

Posted: 13/05/2013 at 18:32

If your flats are private then it would depend who the lease holders are, they could be arranging for the gardens to be cut etc. Or  I would have a word with your local BBC Radio Station and your local newspaper they may be able to do something for you. Hope you get it sorted asap.
