Tree advice

Posted: 30/06/2014 at 05:41

The problem with using cherries in a garden is that they're shallow rooted, and  if you cultivate around them they're prone to throwing up lots of suckers which can cause problems 

I think I'd investigate whether a combination of trellis and pergolas wouldn't provide the privacy needed. 

Buying, installing and caring for a newly planted mature tree can be quite an undertaking as well as very expensive.

seriouse ivy problem!

Posted: 30/06/2014 at 05:34
I've used Vitax SBK brushwood killer to get rid of ivy - cut through and remove a section from the stems as near to the base as you can and drill holes into the stumps and pour the SBK into the holes. Also use it to spray remaining greenery - as directed on the packet. It will require several applicatiions and patience and tenacity, but it will work.

Good luck
