Windbreak shrubs for very dry shade

Posted: 31/01/2017 at 15:49

the big cotoneasters are very good tempered, evergreen and seen to put up with anything. Cotoneaster lacteus is excellent.


Prunus laurocerasus and P. lusitanicus. Viburnum rhytidophyllum  I have grown all these in grotty soil, shade and wind. Improving the soil would help any of them get established and you'd need to water til they were established.

More likely a fungus is moving on on dead wood in the hedge, as Mike says, cut it all out.

Cultivar/Hybrid

I think that fairly sums it up punkdoc, except to say that a species will seed to produce another the same. Hybrids and cultivars can only be reproduced vegetatively (eg cuttings, splitting, grafting)

Ajuga- can I move it now? How best to do it?

any day that's good enough for me to be out there gardening and the ground isn't frozen or over-wet, I move hardy perennials that need moving

now is the time to get them started. Dry bulbs bought in autumn sometimes do OK but mostly not. They don't like drying out.

all welcome here, though I have concerns about visitors in silly shoes falling down one of the many vole holes.

Grass seedling lawn eruptions

Posted: 28/01/2017 at 15:52

I sowed some grass in November and it looks much the same. I sow grass any old time if it's not actually frozen. It won't die, it just stops growing til the frost goes away. Rolling is probably what it needs but I haven't got a roller. It's a small area so I walk on it. OH will probably drive the ride on mower over it. It's a small area of new grass but part of a much bigger bit of grass (it's not lawn, it's grass )

Garden tattoos? Or generally cool and interesting tattoos?
