It was interesting to read that your bamboo tried to take over your garden Verdun.Mine has barely spread.I wonder why...  I do have another bamboo that i really regret planting now,not sure what it is,can't remember,but it's suddenly had the urge to take over the area around my wildlife pond.It was quite happy to confine itself to an area of about a square foot but now it's marching ever onward.Serious digging required methinks.

I have two in my garden.One is planted out and is doing very well,it's been in for about eight years.The other i've had for about three years and is in a large pot.It's prone to drying out very quickly and the leaves curl and drop off.I give it a good long soak with the hose and it seems to recover.It too is quite pot bound but as the one planted out hasn't spread i reckon it's happy.

If i were you pat,i'd leave it as one plant and just make sure to water it often.

 

Moving a tree in a pot

Thank you for your advice.I was going to try and move it today but glad i waited now

It will need a big hammer nutcutlet,the pots about two inches thick which is  maybe why it hasn't burst out of it yet!

blairs, i hadn't realised it could be pruned (i'm a coward with the secateurs,meaning i stear clear of roses for fear of killing them..) Any advice on how i'd prune it to keep it around the height it is now?

Moving a tree in a pot

Can anyone advise me on moving my Katsura tree (Cercidiphyllum Japonicum) I've had it in a fairly small decorative glazed pot for six or seven years and in that time it's grown to about  nine feet tall.It's been fine where it was but now i need to move it and of course the roots have grown out of the pot and anchored it into the soil around.

I obviuosly can't get it out of the pot so i'm wondering,if i cut the root and just move it is it likely to die or the alternative is to uproot the whole thing and replant it pot and all.

I've read that they grow up to 40 feet in America and 100 feet in their native Japan.Anyone have one here in the UK and can tell me their expected height?I've only a smallish garden.

Thanks 

 

I've posted this again as i'm not sure i put it in the right place first time.Sorry

update on Jeyes Fluid and cat probs

I shall be trying the teabag method i think. There's one particular cat that sits in the flower bed next to my wildlife pond with an eye to helping itself to the frogs.This might fettle it!

Peony won't flower!

Ah thanks for that.I did wonder if the conifer might be part of the problem.It's not shading the peony but it might well be taking up a lot of moisture.I'll give extra watering another try.

I resorted to feeding it,to exposing the tuber more and finally,the year before it attempted to flower and produced the first buds,I cut all of the foliage back with the ultimatum that it either flowered the following year or out it came.It flowered feebly but it's now on borrowed time

Frost damaged Ivy

Posted: 18/04/2013 at 20:08

I have ivy covering three of my garden fences and have to keed it in check every now and again by drastically cutting it back.It's almost impossible to kill in my experience unless you damage the base of the plant.Is there any damage there perhaps as Fairygirl says?
