Strawberry Tree - Will it Root?

The sooner the better, but you can only do what you can do.  Good luck.

Is it my faulty memory, or has Fidget gone AWOL?  Don't recall seeing her around for a while ...

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, but I suggest cremation ... your tree is dying and past saving.  All thetips where the freshest greenest young growth should be are brown and dead.  This is because the roots have died.  


Strawberry Tree - Will it Root?

It's highly unlikely that a large branch would take root ... however if the younger growth at the ends of the branch is still fresh and firm you might be able to take and strike a few cuttings from the shoots, as described here

Large lawn

You get what you pay for with artificial grass ... the good stuff that looks ok is incredibly expensive to buy and to have installed.  


Much cheaper to get someone to mow your lawn for you for the next ten years or more.

Seed Identification

Alicante = tomatoes


Marketmore = cucumbers


The middle pic looks like lettuce seeds to me.  AYR suggests 'All Year Round .


You're in the UK and you've recently sown tomato seeds?   Not really the right time of year ... March/April is when you should be sowing them.
