A good deal is one thing Mrs T 12 but value for money is another. I like to see my plants before i buy them.

Garden tree help

Posted: 20/07/2014 at 12:51

Its a difficult one as i know a tree that has had three big roots removed from the lawn and the tree is fine six years on with no suckers in the lawn.

The risk of harming the tree is my concern. You also have to remember that it will leave your lawn in a mess for a bit if you dig them up. It all depends how much of a nuisance the suckers are. I know walking bare foot can be a problem when the suckers are cut.

Is it worth the risk?

That would be difficult to do and removing roots would harm the tree. I would advise against it. Its just one of those things.

They are suckers and you need to cut them off or just keep mowing them. They are a bit of a nuisance unfortunately but cutting them off will not harm the tree.

Whats eating my Tomatoes?

You may find that the slugs are in the pots.

Birds need to peck at the fruit and leave distinctive marks (below) as they have no teeth.

 Slugs leave a neat circular rasped edge.

Look for ovate leaves with a thin fluffy, whitish hair covering.

The grass can be removed and so can any leaves with serrated edges.

Still a bit early to give a full ID.

They don't always leave a visible trail but the slug sized bites and poo are a give-away.
