Is my evergreen dying?

Well I have to say Verdun, after that description I am not really looking forward to the job but the rewards after will be good enough for me!

Suze, I will keep a look out - I have conifers in the front garden which thankfully remain untouched for now...

Is my evergreen dying?

Posted: 29/03/2014 at 20:22
Thanks for all the advice. I thought this would be the case. One of the firs at my parents did the same thing a few years back. They aren't really gardeners so just left it and it eventually just died but just wanted to check if there was anything I could do to salvage my own! Once cut down to a stump, which looks to be a fairly easy task as it is not very wide, will it be fairly easy to dig out?

Already started thinking about the space I will have and I am torn between planting something new or building some corner seating in its place... Decisions, decisions! It is a fairly small but sunny garden which already holds two other trees and lots of bamboo so if you have any other ideas, suggestions are always welcome

My evergreen (not sure what type) is turning brown in parts - should I be worried or is this normal?

Is there anything I can do to help it get it's colour back?

Hi everyone,

just as an FYI it was pampas grass and I have managed to clear it with a little help from the neighbour - now to put something in its place - thanks for your help!

Thanks for your responses - it would probably be best to get rid although it seems a shame. Is it just a case of digging it out? They don't have massive roots do they?

Welcome!

Ditto, I myself am in the same boat - just moved and new to gardening! Quite fortunate as it is fairly small space and low maintenance but really want to make the most of it and put my stamp on it! I can't wait

hi all,

I didn't manage to see it as only recently moved so not sure if it is pampas... But please see below - thanks for the tip

as you can see it is huge both in height and width so need to do something quite drastic but I am worried I may kill it as can imagine when in control would look nice
