Geranium ID and sunflower woe

Posted: 26/06/2014 at 06:58

My slugs have only allowed one of my sunflowers to survive, despite my having spoken to them severely.  However this on remaining sunflower seems to know that the reputation of all sunflowers is on its shoulders - it's turning into the sturdiest looking sunflower I've ever grown 

what to plant atop a north faceing hill

And when you say 'hill' how high are we talking about and when you say 'cover from trees' what sort, how big and how close?  

Also is this a rural spot, coastal  or near a city?

any help for a ring barked tree? :-(

If the landscapers planted a ring barked tree haul them back by the scruffs of their necks and get them to replace it. 

If they won't, tell Trading Standards!

Hmmm - where's Nutcutlet?  She'll know ................ 

Help - should I chop down the tree?

Oh dear - and your neighbour fell for that old one - and paid them for it too !!!!!

Treat yourself to something nice - you've saved yourself some money and a red face, and kept a beautiful tree as well
