Plant ID under tree please

Thanks Kitty 2. I think you may have cracked it.


I've just been looking it up and it certainly looks like it. Sounds a bit naughty though. I'm not gonna keep it as I have goats in a paddock not too far away and I don't want the risk of it spreading.

Hi guys,


Can someone tell me what are these that have cropped up under my conifers?


There's about five of them.


Thanks in advance,


Jo

Hi guys,


Now I know I'm not supposed to cut back my autumn fruiting raspberry till February but I need to move it now and I can't dig it up, unless I cut it back first. It's too big.


Will this be a problem?


Cheers,


Jo

Iris foliage taking over

Hi guys,


I'm sure this is a silly question but can I cut away some of the foliage from my Irises whilst they are in bloom?


There is so much of it that is flops and covers other flowers trying to find some light.


I've tried tying it up but it doesn't look very natural.


Thanks,


Jo

Bramble nightmare

Thanks Chris. I actually just went through the lot with my electric tiller and that seems to have brought up quite a lot.

Would that work with the millions of little bramble shoots that I have coming up too?

I'm worried it might poison the soil.

Hi guys,

I've recently cleared away approx. 20sqm of dead shrubs only to find I have a complete bramble root system running through the area. How on earth do I get rid of it without killing off any trees or plants that are also in the area?

Digging it up is hopeless, there's too much and I disturb other roots.

It's driving me bonkers!!! 

 

Cheers,

Jo

Ant invasion

Posted: 28/06/2015 at 17:49

Hi guys,

I'm going out of my mind with ant nests in my driveway. As fast as i put ant powder on one nest they start another somewhere else. Every morning I have new piles of sand appearing and it's driving me nuts.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Jo
