Hawthorn tree dying?

Posted: 03/05/2015 at 18:33

I'd take it out. 3' apart is a bit close for hawthorn anyway. After 3 years you should be able to get the root as well. Your hard mossy fungus might be lichen, which is no problem.

Can you post a photo?

I don't think it's a pulmonaria.

A view of a whole leaf in good but not glaring light would help, and maybe the plant from the top. sorry

I'm using big pots rather than growbags, I like the extra depth. Have you had the frosts we've had Rhod? If so, I'll stop worrying

I've got several toms that I've been keeping on a windowsill at night and out in the cold GH most days as thelight is better. They now need another potting on which will make them too big for the windowsill. Can I leave them in the GH now please? What's the lowest temperature they can cope with. We're expecting minimum 7C on the 5 day forecast, (less another 2 degrees as we're in the sticks not a city).
