Willow Hedge (I think)

Posted: 08/10/2014 at 17:24

You're right re Alan's plant Fairy

DD willow isn't invasive in the sense that ground elder is, but the roots are extensive and can be damaging and the annual growth is enormous,  more so with every year

I only found one nest, usually more than that. 

Advice for getting rid of plant

Answer to  question 1. No. A weedkiller works on green leaves, that's gone brown.

Just put soil in the hole.

If the mildish weather holds you'll be OK to sow grass seed, if it doesn't make it have another go in  spring. Worth a try though, if it were me I'd sow.

Questions aren't silly.

Maybe crocosmia, or one of those we called montbretia that hung around in the garden without much effect

Be glad your snowdrops have survived being dried out and planted in September. They often don't. That's why they're sold 'in the green' in spring

Also check they are snowdrops. Grape hyacinths are the most likely to be making leaves now

Most clems can take a good hack.

I would get rid od the elder unless you want a wild look, I'd get rid of the willow unless you want a lot of work that has no end.

Those willow shapes and fences that Alan mentions look nice for a while but they need constant controlling. They don't sucker so the ones coming up in the blackcurrants were probably sticks from pruning. If you leave them on the ground they root
