Cutting back lawsoniana hedge

OK, that's what I feared.

Many thanks for your advice.

Cutting back lawsoniana hedge

Posted: 13/09/2015 at 18:36

I have recently moved into a property that has a 5' thick 9' high lawsoniana hedge that clearly hasn't been cut for quite some time. There is a new flower border just in front of it and the hedge keeps off the morning sun.

I want to cut the hedge right back to 5' hight and 3' width. Will it survive and sprout out again or would this kill it.

Is it too late to sow brassicas now?

Well that certainly is encouraging; it seemed as if we were doomed to a bambooless garden. After your bamboo flowered did it all die the next year, as ours has done, or did you get leaves appearing on exising canes. In other words do you know if your new bamboo grew from seed, on existing canes or from the existing roots?

Thanks for that Emma. We do seem to have some seeds formed so may be able to persuade some to germinate.

Bamboo Dying

My father planted bamboo brought from his family home some 55 years ago. I do not know the variety. He and I have since split up clumps to make large barriers, borders and backdrops all of which have multiplied over the years. They represent a very significant part of the flora in our garden and wood.

Last year they all flowered and looked very poorly. I can see no new growth this year. Is that it? Am I just left with, probably several million, bamboo canes or will there be any regrowth from the root stock?

I've tried to upload an image of the bamboo but the GW uploader seems not to be operating at the moment!

Bamboo Dying

My Bamboo flowered last year and seems to be dying out. Is that it?
