Rowan tree issue??

Posted: 17/01/2015 at 18:49

I don't think I would bother trying to save it. S. hupehensis isn't the most robust grower in my experience and one that only has half its circumference of bark (maybe less, we can't see the back) is never going to be the splendid berry bearing specimen you hoped for.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I brushed the water out of the drip pool ahead of the expected frost, checked to see if any of the stratifying seeds had germinated, prepared the next instalment of seeds for sowing and went to an HPS meeting.

Seed Dormancy

The 2 peas might like a scarify and soak but I haven't grown either of these 2 and am only comparing with others of the same family

Paulownia won't need a chill but won't want to be buried deeply as it needs light to germinate.

Juniper is one that has deep dormancy. Ideally you would have sown that fresh while weather was still warm, then left it out for a chill. I'd sow it now and leave it outside and just wait

It grew very well in my previous garden but I haven't managed to get it established here. It's said not to like chalk but my last garden was closer to chalk than the current one. Lovely plant, easy if it's happy

Viburnum Fragrans

I prune a few old branches right to the base when it looks as though it needs it. This gets more tricky as time goes on

Hi gg, have a look through the site. Have a look and see if you have a local group. Talks are arranged, trips and plant sales. You can go along as a visitor to see if you like it.
