Dead or alive?

Posted: 21/08/2015 at 16:06

Len it does sound as though it's hanging in there. When I asked about new build it's because quite often there is rubble bricks and heaven knows what hidden under the new turf. 

Nothing wrong with clay high in nutrients but water logs and dries out quickly, I garden on clay but add well rotted farmyard manure and home made compost to bulk it out.

I'm not knowledgeable about trees so I hope you take advice from other posters, smart folks on this forum 

Dead or alive?

Len it doesn't look healthy to me 

Is your home a new build?  I ask as I wonder what sort of earth the tree has tried to put roots into.

Any ideas anyone?

DD it looks very like a creeping plant that grows in sand and near beach showers in Greece (likes a drop of water) it does flower if that's what it is but later in the year and they are pink / red. Might be totally wrong but wondered if it was that as you've had such hot weather and little rain

Hi all 

Well done Fairy 100 

David that was amazing, it takes longer for a bus to get here than your parcel  Are you gonna tell us wot you bought 

P doc & LilyP & Hosta and all walking (hobbling) wounded hope you are okay.

Had five hours x2 at mum's in her garden, I'm sure I said we would not do that again She was well pleased and insisted we had a reward  don't usually accept anything but she insisted so we now have £15 for a meal out for us both LOL
