Can anyone help me treat my ailing standard holly tree!!

Posted: 05/05/2016 at 07:26

Hello a4ange

A photo would be good.  Also some more information -how big is the holly, what size pot is it in and what sort of compost/growing medium is in the pot.  When was it last repotted and what is the feeding and watering regime?

From the forum designers' perspective

I agree - this is early days yet - I struggled yesterday on my iPhone, but the new format is better on the laptop. 

I wish that we had a page of 'Latest Posts' we could glance down to pick out an interesting subject ... maybe it will appear

Plant ID - is it a tree?

Unless you have several acres and want a large wildlife thicket-type area I'd chop it up and put it on the compost heap.  It will grow huge and be nothing but a nuisance.

And I love trees

Good morning all  G'day Pat

I must say that the new format is better on my laptop than on my iPhone - but I still don't like being without a page of 'Latest Posts' that I can run my eye over and choose something interesting. 

However, it is an absolutely gorgeous day here

Your new-look forum

I really wanted to like this Ireally did , but just emtering this on my iPhone is really stressful. I cant edit and I cant find a page that shows active threads. If I go to say Plants loads of old threads come up first. 

I can't scroll down a page of threads to see new tbreads or threads that have a recent post added. 

im really really struggling

Bad Day

Oh Chicky   Wish you lived nearer - I have surplus tommies in need of a good home.  Wonky will have some but there are more .............

I have a big problem to resolve

Totally agree with Chicky (I usually do ) and that garden is full of potential and is nothing like as bad as this one was when we moved in.  And you have some good rocks for some sort of feature as well - marvellous
