They're not long lived. If there are healthy shoots take some cuttings.

Sorry Nut, cross posted!

What to do with Conifer trunk

Posted: 20/06/2014 at 10:08

Put some netting round it and grow a clematis or any climber you prefer.

You will need to loosen the soil around it and apply some nice well rotted compost. The tree wont branch out again so marvelous for a climber.

 My garden is all from seeds, cuttings, root cuttings, I originally bought some bare root perenial from Parkers, and its taken of from there. In the long border there are 12 shrubs that I bought for about 15.00, apart from that, I can honestly say, 'i have grown these plants'. I couldnt afford to buy!.

Hi Lyn, it's a Principe Borghese. What should I do with it?

Glad you have sorted it out, usually best to look on the net first if you can, you could have ruined your crop.

Mine are like that, as soon as its fully open, its starting to fade. Maybe when the plant is big it will throw up more flowers over the growing period.

I use the compost bag inside out. Make the holes for drainage about 2inches up, not right in the bottom, it will then hold some water instead of draining right out.

If you do grow them from your own seeds you probably wont get the same colour as the mother plant.

But if you dont mind pot luck, irs a cheap way to increase your stock.
