What to plant under a tree?

Posted: Yesterday at 08:35

To be honest, I'd remove the sycamore and replace it with a tree that is more attractive and creates a less dense shade.  Sycamores do grow absolutely huge, the shade underneath is dense, they invariably get a sooty mildew on the leaves so they don't even look attractive and they're not particularly good for wildlife. And then of course there's the problem of the seeds all taking root around the garden ...

While they're perfectly good rural hedgerow trees in my experience they're not really suitable for a garden - I'd take it down while it's still manageable - it'll cost big money to do it when it's bigger, and that will be in just a few years' time.

Sorry, I'm a big fan of most trees in most gardens, but if that was mine Ithat's what I'd do.

Hi herbgarden

I've never grown these, but as there've been no replies to your query so far I had a google, which lead to this blog http://www.chigiy.com/the_gardeners_anonymous_b/2011/03/how.html - the writer is in California rather than the UK, but the information she gives is interesting and should give you a starting point at least.

Good luck

A good car boot should have a smooth 'catch' so that you can slide bags of compost and manure in and out without them catching and tearing

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all

Fidget, hope your father's soon home.  Lesley, hope son's leg clears up quickly.  Anyone else in need of care, attention and ((hugs)) please help yourself   I'm trying to catch up after having been AWOL for most of yesterday.  When I arrived home at 5.30 Hefty was on the back doorstep waiting for his supper!  He's getting earlier and earlier - he must be  sleeping in this garden under one of the piles of rubbish we've stashed up in the corners
