Blossom Trees

Posted: 11/05/2012 at 00:52
I am planning a similar border of trees to line a formal lawn. As most trees grow much larger than 3m X 2m, I have decided that the acers may be the best option on my acid soil as they have so much colour intrest all year round. You could go for any fruiting tree on dwarf root stock and the blossom is great for 2-3 weeks. But I'm tempted by the prehistoric 'stag's horn sumach' for it's fantastic autumn colour and unusual flowers/fruit. Best of luck!

waste fish tank water

I use my old tank water for all my non edible container plants esp' the hungry ones like bamboo and ferns. I would not use it on any edible plants as the chemical treatments used to break down heavy metals and chlorine as well as any medications  used will still be present. I would not like the idea of eating anything grown is fresh fish waste! All the best
