Great British Garden Revival

Enjoyed the tree episode, but as always it didn't really teach me anything. Its all well and good showing us beautiful trees, but I think they should have told us about the most suitable trees for small gardens and perhaps rootstock names such as M27 etc.

They showed us the couple who had kept all the trees in their garden small, which got me excited as I have half a dozen 4ft oak trees still in their pots that I planted from acorns and would like to keep small, but they failed to show us exactly how they did it!

So, a lovely programme to watch, but without the benefit of teaching me anything.

I'm definitely planning to try growing wildflowers at the bottom of my garden next year, including red poppies seeing as its the 100 yr anniversary of the start of WW1.

 

Would i be better sowing any seeds in the spring, or do they need the winter cold to make them germinate?

I'm in the process of transferring the last two years of GW onto DVD. But it's a slow procedure.

I think some of my lovely potted box balls are suffering from blight, some of the foliage has died on 3 of my plants. Monty on GW suffered similar on his box hedge and he had to cut it right down. I shall do the same. 

Does anyone know what causes it, and how it spreads as i have other box balls that I'd like to keep healthy.

The problem with trying to rip out that tree is that someone built a barbecue on top of its roots and the roots of the others. Maybe I could dig around behind it to separate it from them, but if I leave infected roots in the ground ... *sigh*

 

I se what you mean. Perhaps dig the trench close to the bbq and cut through as many roots as you can. Hopefully it wont be disturbed when the tree comes out.
