Tree bands

Posted: 06/10/2014 at 11:39

I'm experimenting this year. Some trees I'm using grease tree bands and some just the grease. I'v used grease bands in the past and it seemed to work.

maggie 1..ensure you tie the string tightly round the bands..both top and bottom. Also if the tree is supported by a bamboo cane, ensure the cane has tree bands/grease as well.

I've got a purpurea echinacea which flowered beautifully. I've purchased a white plant and I was thinking of planting this next to the other one? How much space do each need?

Dicemanc.. I have in my garden a bay lollipot style 4 foot tall plant. I keep the shape by trimming whatever is not in keeping with the shape. No suckers in site. I feed it once a year and 'talk' to it whenever I pass it!!
