Raising Cedar Crown - Advice Please!

Posted: 23/08/2014 at 12:17

I agree with Nut, Yvie and Welshonion - it's out of all proportion to it's surroundings and it's going  to get bigger and bigger.  When I saw the first photo I was quite shocked.  Whatever you do to is is going to cost money - I would bite the bullet now and have it taken out and the stump removed.  There are so many lovely trees you could plant that will enhance rather than overshadow your garden.

sorry who is this?

I tried to remove everyone from my ignored list but they won't go. It doesn't matter, they were mostly advertisers and WUMS and aren't about now anyway. But if I do ignore anyone by mistake I won't get them back

I delete them and they disappear, but when I look next time , they're back.

 

I think if they've been barred by the Mods then they show up on our ignored list and we can't get rid of them - whereas if we've Ignored them ourselves then we can un-Ignore them

HELLO FORKERS!

Hi folks just popping in on OH's laptop   I do keep up with what's going on using son's iPad, but for some reason it won't let me log in here so I have to read and keep my thoughts to myself

Glad your mum's not too bad Lesley - parents are such a worry - children too

What I need to know is, when will this lovely sunshine dry the lawn out so I can mow it?

sorry who is this?

It can happen by accident - I once ignored myself!  - just hovering your cursor over the wrong bit of the page can do it.  You can go into your list of Ignored members and delete Bamboogie from there and all will be fine again

There is no preventative, but if you get them in your lawn treat the lawn with nematodes specifically for leatherjackets.  Totally safe for dog and wildlife (except leatherjackets)

Info here https://www.rhs.org.uk/Advice/profile?pid=651

You can buy them online.

I wouldn't - it'll look horrid

I'd rather remove it and plant something more suitable for the spot.
