Screening needed

Posted: 25/11/2017 at 16:15

Have you considered using structures such as pergolas and arbours with climbers to provide screening, rather than using trees?

Trees, even smaller ones, rarely stop growing when you want them to, and may well cause problems with drains, service pipes, foundations etc not to mention suckering roots invading lawns etc.

Plant names website?

Isn't that what Google does so well?

eg.  I put 'plants named Emily' into Google and have been given loads of websites about different types of plant called Emily ... including a rose and a auricula.

Strawberries from runners - How to keep them protected and fed in the garden over the winter?

Posted: 25/11/2017 at 11:48

Holes in the bottom of pots are good ... the ensure good drainage ... plant roots rot and die if they are kept in sodden compost.

Roots growing out of the bottom are simply an indication that your cuttings have rooted (Hurrah!) and are ready to be potted on into slightly bigger pots ... one cutting per pot.  

Hope that helps
