thanks so much for the responses. I will take all these things into account. I hope I don't loose them all! Someone mentioned to me about adult vine weevil so I will definitely treat them for that. Can you see vine weevil?

laurel plants being eaten!

Hello . can someone please help solve the problem with my laurel hedging plants.

I planted a row of plants last year and they were initially doing well, but over the winter they have been eaten drastically. Firstly we thought it was deer but now i'm wondering if its bugs. I have recently planted more in a different section of garden and even though they are strong healthy plants I think these are now being affected as well. The leaves have holes in them and also bite marks around the edges. some plants have been completely destroyed. please can someone help identify the problem and advise me what to do about it. many thanks. Karen

Thankyou. The photo is really good. We certainly need something that will look after itself, as we have a lot of woodland and garden to care for. I wondered how long the cotoneaster would take to grow to that size?

Thats great. I was also wondering whether to plant a couple of different types of christmas trees on the steeper shady slope. Any thoughts on this? Thanks for all the suggestions I will have a look at all of these and get planting! 

Help to plant new sloping borders

Posted: 03/09/2013 at 08:21

Hello all. We have recently had a new driveway (not finished yet) and have now  three large sloping areas to plant. We don't want any more grass areas and would like to have a mixture of trees and ground cover plants. The one area is quite steep and is next to woodland. It does get some afternoon/evening sun,  but is mostly shade. The other two areas have sun from mid morning onwards. Some ideas I have is to to plant some spruce or pine trees on the steeper slope and maybe go for cotoneaster or vinca as ground cover mixed with faster growing shrubs on the other slopes. I want to keep the cost down but also have something that will grow quite quickly. Any help will be appreciated .
