Transport needed for flooded gardens

Posted: 17/04/2014 at 22:53

Hi Lizzie

I have a boot load of plants. If I remember I'll take their photo tomorrow. Mine aren't this year from seed plants, they're mostly last year from seed or cutting

It will regrow,, that's coppicing, an old woodland management technique.

Has it got 2 stems from one plant? It looks like it in the pic. You could cut one back and some more will grow in its place. Let one of those grow and then cut the other big one back.

In the meantime work on getting something more garden-friendly than a sycamore

I agree with michael re chemicals, I rarely use any and never insecticides. but don't let it go in the pond if you do use it. 

If you've got the energy, dig them up

True, you just have to be a bit careful of those offering seeds of hybrids and cultivars, which won't seed true.

It a large part that's what my garden is made of. Formerly under enormous willows as well

The basis is former gravel diggings, long channels from the horse and cart era.

The previous owner wanted these filled and encouraged everyone, locals, builders, the farmer, to dump and fill. Some fortunately was soil.

Digging here is known as rock mining, I try and get at least a fork's depth with the half bricks, concrete, broken asbestos, plastic toys, removed

We shifted the plastic to the tip and most of the carpets. The large lumps of concrete made steps and a 'rockery'. Scrap metal made sculptures.

Things grow, choose the plants to fit what you've got. Get some more topsoil if needed. Make the most of what you have
