sycamore tree

hi everyone, im on an errand of mercy for my friend, there is a large sycamore tree in her neighbours garden, just on the other side of her fence, i think i read on here that it is likely to take all the moister from her soil, everything she plants seems to die, can anyone suggest an inexpensive plant that is easy to manage that she can put there, she did plant a clemitis 2 years ago but it is still just a stem ha ha, any advice would be appreciated, thanks ps, the border is in front of an 8ft wall

hi everyone, can anyone help, i have just bought 2 laurel bushes, to put in a space at the back of my garden, im hoping they will grow bushy and eventually the birds will use it, what i need to know is how far apart do i plant them, and how far in front of the fence do they need to be, many thanks

Posted: 22/11/2012 at 13:20

i have rowan trees 1 in my front garden and i in my back garden, and this year i have had more berries than ever, the trees where weighed down with them, they are also in heavy poor drain clay soil, i love seeing the blackbirds on them, i would like to know why the birds never seem to eat the berries that have dropped
