Problem

Posted: 07/12/2014 at 19:31

I have a raised bed made of bricks.  It is about 2'6" high and was in the garden when I moved in some  25 years ago. Some of the bricks are beginning to crumble and I was wondering if there was something I could do that wouldn't involve knocking the bed down as I like the idea of it and it is planted up with alpine plants which I would be hard put to put anywhere else.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Have looked on the internet and I seem to think it is more like sulphur tuft.  Is this as hard as honey fungus to get rid of?

Thanks BobTheGardner I will take a photo if it comes back and Pansyface I will look up sulphur tuft and hf to see if I can identify it.  Many thanks to you both.

 Sorry, when I saw it I cleared away into the bin (not the compost bin) but it was long in shape and the top was like a thin bell shape.

Three years ago we chopped down an old apple tree in our garden but did not dig out the roots.  Now we have what I thing is honey fungus (honey coloured mushrooms)growing out of the ground at the bottom of the stump.  I have heard this is hard to get rid of, is this true?  Would appreciate any help.

What would survive in my mini greenhouse at the moment

Posted: 26/02/2014 at 15:08

I only have a mini plastic greenhouse but grow pelargonium and fuchsia cuttings  each year in the greenhouse.  I wrap the inside of the greenhouse in garden fleece and though I do lose some cuttings a lot do survive.  Wilco's are reasonable plants and at the moment I have two Dicentra and a hardy geranium in pots at the bottom of the greenhouse so I am sure that your plants will be fine.  Good luck.

Clematis from seed

Sorry to be so long in getting back, but thanks for the info.  I was thinking of getting rid of it but I might hang on and see what happens.

Hi, can anyone advise on this please.  Three years ago I grew a clematis from seed.  Unfortunately, I've forgotten the name of it and misplaced the seed packet, but I had success with one seed and it is now in a pot in the garden looking quite healthy.  The problem is it hasn't flowered.  Do clematis take their time to flower?

Thanks for your advice BobThe Gardener I will try it with a wash about December.  I had been advised to take off the infected leaves but that would mean denuding nearly half the tree.  Hopefully the fruit will be ok as this was the best year for blossom yet.
