How do I go about draining this?

Posted: Yesterday at 17:26

It may be that the soil there is very compacted and if you gave it a good digging the problem would go away. I see areas like that in fields around here, those that haven't been turned since harvest. The soil isn't that heavy and ploughed fields are OK

Anyone done any gardening today?

Not bad in the cold GH sowed the final lot of cold germinating seeds from HPS. Some of these would have been better sown in autumn but you can't sow them if you haven't got them

water butt tap not working

Sounds daft but was there a hole cut properly in the butt, not a potential hole that needed pushing out?

TREE REMOVAL

I think you have to live with HF. We have it and don't lose much. Re the lawn, I always remove the fruiting bodies, they do make a stinking black mess when they disintegrate.

The RHS have a list of plants that are relatively resistant.

I'm pretty easy about diseases but I think I wouldn't do that. HF lives on tree roots and I would mulch woody plants with it

poorly privet

Mine loses its leaves in severe winters but you can see buds ready to open.

Bits of mine have started to die though, the hedge dates from 1960, had been severely neglected for years, tall enough to tangle in the phone wires til we gave it a short back and sides a few years ago. 

One cause of death here is having its stems nibbled at ground level. I blame the voles of which we have lots.

We do have HF in the garden but, as far as I'm aware, not close to the hedge.That's probably the one thing that would affect other shrubs, most diseases are specific to certain plants.

Do Bay Trees grow on stalks or are they static/ grafted?

I can't see the pic but bay grows on its own roots and sucker to make more.

I don't know if they're ever grafted. or what they'd be grafted onto
