Builders yard next door. Bit of height that ends with a fatal sounding crunch.

Seedling Issues?

Thanks Dave. Did that today. Of course, the lovely sunny day I left behind when I went to work turned into cold, cloudy and drizzle. Typical. Anyway, the kids look none the worse so will see what happens in the next few days.

Seedling Issues?

I have attached a picture of my germinated Sweet Peas and Pumpkins. I am a bit of a newbie when it comes to growing from seed and have never grown these before.   The taller sweet peas germinated about a week ago and to my untrained eye look leggy. They are kept in a very light room and the compost is moist.   The Pumpkin has grown quite tall and looks like it has become top heavy because of the large seed leaves.   Are these all acting as they should be or are there some issues? Any advice on ation needed would be greatly received.

My dream of a Viburnum flush with white flowers has yet to come true. I know it has had some flowers but minimal at best. This year, none.

Would it be the Maple sucking the life out of everything? Reason I ask is, if you look at the first picture, on the far left middle you can just see the offending forsythia. Also in the top left corner you can see what I think is a climbing hydrangea. Last summer, you guessed it, no flowers.

Three plants, in the same bed, having blooming issues. Coincidence?

Nut, I want to say it is a Viburnum Tinus Gwenllian but am not sure. I have attached a couple of pics.

Thanks guys,

Dave, no, none have been pruned.

The Magnolia is in good shape and size for its spot so haven't touched it (and won't now Welshonion.

I was waiting for the Forsythia to flower before pruning.

The Viburnum has also been left untouched, and hasn't been for the 3 winters I have been in this house. It does look messy and needs work but have been unsure about how much to cut so have never done it. In fact, I don't think it has ever flowered since it has been in my care!

Lyn, I am stilling holding out but given all round my area all 3 are in full flower, I am losing hope.
