I have hundreds of bees also, they are covering the 8ft tall echium, i have lupins and foxgloves, soon will be the allium and echinops.

Willow or Bamboo screen?

Posted: 27/06/2014 at 22:17

So did I!!!

I bought a willow screen on a roll but it disintrigated after 2 years, and another roll went the same way before we ever put it up. It was to go around the oil tank. Maybe because it was Amazon, it was too cheap.

I dont know anything about lilac, only just got my first ever one, but I did see somewhere and I think it was on here, that they can get a disease, type lilac in the search box at the top of the site page and maybe you can find the old thread. Sorry I cant help you, maybe you could put a photo on.

No Mel, the onion will have ' blown ' as they say. You wont be able to eat it and it wont keep, when a plant of any type flowers and sets seeds, it conciders its job over. But it will live on in its sedds for next year.
