Are my conifers dying?

Oh, and the roots grow first in order to sustain the top growth 

Are my conifers dying?

I think the ones in pubs etc have a pretty high turnover ... they probably get fresh ones in each year.


If the water is running straight through it could well be that the pot is so full of roots that it's not absorbing the water.  Try filling a large container with water and standing the tree in its pot in it for a couple of hours until the air bubbles stop appearing.  


Mind your back  when lifting !

Pretty certain that if it has pink eyes it's a coloured potato .... (or a white rabbit )

Spring Bulbs and growing now :O(

Are they grape hyacinths?  They often/always start growing really early ... they'll slow down/stop as the weather cools 


What bulbs have you bought?  I'll be planting daffs/narcissi in September

Oh Raisingirl ((hugs)) ... nasty break ... poor doggy ... one of brother's young labs did that a couple of years ago, getting overexcited, dashing about and just slammed herself into a fence ... as you say, femur shattered in two places.  If it's any consolation she's hale and hearty now
