Creeper on walnut tree

Posted: 20/10/2016 at 09:39

Don't believe everything you learnt in school biology 

As with most things, it depends on context - we need to know more - what sort of creeper, what sort of soil, where are the creeper roots (how close) and what do you want from the walnut tree.

Can you post some photos please, showing the tree and some close ups of the creeper etc.

Up, dressed and eating granola and yoghurt - and it's not still the wee small hours - it seems that I'm finally getting the hang of this retirement thingy 

Pdoc - as has been said 

There are no words but we thank the gods for people like you.  The things you'll have seen make our little trials and tribulations pale into insignificance. 

Coffee anyone?

Did you use an ericaceous potting medium/soil and rainwater only for watering?  Camellias cannot tolerate lime.

I assume you're talking about buddleja?

I suspect they are suffering from transplant shock. It's likely that the roots have been damaged and can no longer sustain the amount of flowers and foliage they used to. I would cut the shrub hard back to lessen the demands on the roots while they recover.  Ensure that they are well watered. 

This site is primarily UK focused and few of us will have knowledge of the differences in gardening in various parts of the USA.
