Aralia spinosa - devil's walking stick

Hi Wendy, is this a multi-stemmed tree and you want to remove some or do you want to reduce the height? 

I should think the dormant season would be best but I've never pruned one. I left one behind in my last garden so someone has probably pruned it by now

ID's if possible please =+)

I think Lyn is right about them all being the same, the first 2 definitely. Not mint though.

perenial seeds

I wouldn't, unless you have a free supply of lots of seeds.

There's a real danger of them being swamped by weeds. Some perennials, sown now, will germinate in spring. Weeds will germinate every day between now and spring.

and perennials are much slower than annuals, a few flower the first year from seed but most don't. that leaves more time to be swamped

If you have got plenty of seeds then throw them at the slope, some will come through

Symphoricarpos albus, snowberry. Wanders a bit and spreads, about 6 foot max in my garden

So what should we be doing with our grass right now?

Posted: 05/08/2014 at 16:43

I don't do anything. It goes brown,  it rains, in goes green.

It depends what you want  a LAWN or a patch of grass for the kids to play on.

The seeds of the cultivars don't come true, you're right Verdun. But you can get some nice plants. Hadspen Blood gives mostly nice red ones but obviously not Hadspen Blood.

id please

root cuttings are the best. They are somewhat invasive and may creep into your garden without help
