Controlling an old large tree

Posted: 20/08/2016 at 12:32

if you are (or know anyone that is) good at drawing or photo manipulation, draw what you'll end up with, the shape of the remaining branches. Have a look to see what the lower ones look like inside the tree, will there be a lot of dead stuff? And include what's on the other side.


Think and plan first, you don't want any regrets.

sorry for flippancy valc but plants don't work like that.

Removal Of Ivy On Asbestos Garage Roof

worth checking re asbestos. I know someone who had a cellar lined with what he thought was asbestos. Lots of time, £s and professionals later it was found not to be asbestos.

Is gardening good for the soul?

I think the outdoor life is a healthy one. The work of gardening is good for physical health and being surrounded by growing things and wild life is good for my mental health.


I don't know what a soul is

Hebe/caryopteris

Posted: 20/08/2016 at 10:28

Hi Dave


caryopteris are late flowering, mine aren't out yet


catmint stems can be cut right back any time


Lavender flower stems can be cut but don't go back in into old wood, stay in the green.


How old are the hebes?

is my plum tree dying?

I should think the fungal stuff has moved into dead/dying branches. If you pruned off all the branches that are like that, would there be anything left? I don't think there's any hope for a branch as in the last photo.


Sorry

Sow Hardy Annuals

Posted: 19/08/2016 at 23:23

our poppies (ie Papaver rhoeas, Field Poppy) are best sown now, outside, where you want it to grow and not transplanted.


Californian poppies (Escscholzias) won't survive any but the mildest winters here. None of them like being transplanted. It can be done but it sets them back.


Love in a mist self sows here and over winters well. Bigger plants than those that germinate in spring.


Hardy annuals aren't plants for indoors and GHs
