To Keep The Trees Or Not?

I totally agree with Busy Lizzie keep the row and and ditch the ash. We've just had one of the two large ashes in our garden felled. It cost ??500 to have done. They get very big quite quickly!

BL I think it's worth trying - this post on an old thread suggests that the stems can form roots

Hollie- Hock wrote (see)

Cosmos are lovely flowers- I've been growing the Purity ones for the first time this year.

Interesting what you said about the white roots. One of mine got really battered earlier this year and the stem was badly bent- the plant was still alive so I just left it resting on the ground.Just by chance I picked up the stem the other day and there are loads of roots coming out of the stem that was on the ground. So I guess it is possibly to take stem cuttings

Mine will probably get leggy too as they're on the dining room windowsill at the moment and will be going into the east-facing mini greenhouse later, so let us know how yours get on if you plant them deep.

Morning Fairy, morning chaps

What is your weather like?

Hmmm - all those fluffy clouds have joined up and are looking decidedly grey - hardly any blue bits left - certainly not enough to make a sailor a pair of trousers

Hellebores, hostas, foxgloves, salvias, some clematis ... loads of things are happy in semi-shade

Lots of suitable plants in the light/dappled shade section here https://www.rhs.org.uk/Advice/profile?pid=100

Make sure you've dug the beds wide enough from front to back - they always need to be wider than you think - a bed narrower than a metre is too narrow to do much with.

As Verdun has said, you need to check out the pollination requirements of your particular variety of blueberry. 

And it's worth noting that even the 'self fertile' ones produce a much better crop with another planted nearby.
