Dying Olive tree

Posted: 21/07/2017 at 15:38

A tree that size is going to need quite a bit of watering until it gets established ... the soil looks dry ... has it been watered? 


It's quite a specialist thing to transplant and look after a tree of that age and size ... where there any care instructions with it?

Watering plants with soakaway water

The water from a modern properly functioning septic tank shouldn't really be smelly ... 


Do you know if the previous owner ever had it 'de-sludged'?  Some tanks work so well that they rarely need the sludge to be pumped out, but some need it done from time to time.

I agree with Ian ... you want a nice busy shrub so take the flowers off ... equivalent to pinching out.

Pat, is he also telling you about canaries and buses disappearing down holes in the road?  That's what Norwich is also famous for.  I'm a Suffolk girl ... only lived here 22 years so am a relative foreigner
