Talkback: Japanese knotweed

Posted: 26/07/2015 at 09:33

This is interesting https://www.warners-solicitors.co.uk/article/195/japanese-knotweed---legal-implications.html

It looks as if a solicitor's letter  might galvanise them into action.

Plant suggestions please!

"... The contorted hazel makes an excellent container plant and can be combined with spring bulbs and hellebores in a winter-to-spring arrangement, where - with care - it will survive for many years..."

Plant suggestions please!

Well, it's not evergreen, but for winter interest you can't beat a Twisted hazel (Corylus contorta) - a living sculpture in your garden, stunning when covered with frost or gleaming with raindrops, then catkins in the early spring - and very happy in a container.

It's a bit less stunning in the summer, but there's plenty of other plants to hold your interest at that time of year.

And how fantastic to cut a few stems for the house

wall v hedge

I like walls and I like hedges - I'm wondering whether there's a way of constructing a wall that is suitable for your garden, which could offer more to wildlife than just a straightforward brick wall ...........

I remember the storm of 1987 very well - our village was cut off by fallen trees for several days and we had no electricity for more than a week .
