What do you hate most about gardening?

Posted: 16/07/2017 at 10:56

I hate clearing up after I've spent a few happy hours throwing weeds and prunings over the grass and paths. Especially if I haven't  kept compost heap weeds apart from shredding heap

Grass for an orchard?

Posted: 16/07/2017 at 10:45

any old cheapo grass seed will do if you're not looking for a bowling green 

But this is just my opinion. I'm interested in plants and wildlife. Anything flat and green that can be walked on is good enough for me

Grass for an orchard?

I'd just mow. If you keep mowing regularly it will be green. A flat mono-culture grass lawn would look out of place in an orchard. Wait til the bulbs have died down each year then mow regularly through the rest of the season

Weed/tree suckers?

tree suckers, yes

Maple, no

Paul, if someone gets up your nose, that ignore function is very useful.  Anything else is just encouragement

willow blight

There's a lot of tightly packed willow bound round with more willow.. That would need a big pot if it's not in soil and a lot of water. I'd look there first

Horticultural grit

Can't see how grit could be poisonous

Seedling ID, please

Most likely to be some non native plant from a packet of summer annuals. Most common weeds can be found in my garden and none of them look like that
