cut or leave ?

Sorry Kev,you didn't get an answer and I haven't got a clue but I'll bump you up

Cedar Trees are brown on one side

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 21:29

My guess would be cold winds/frost. What proportion of any tree has gone brown? Have you a photo. 

Conifers don't recover from going brown but if it's not much, the healthy growth might cover the damage

Never grown it at all Verdun but I'll give you a nudge up. Have you seen the pics of Foggy Bottom yet?

Love the hives as well as the bees BB

Can anyone help identify these plants?

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 21:17

Saponaria ocymoides Help

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 21:14

Hard to tell from the pics and I can't enlarge them. They may not support themselves but the leaves shouldn't be floppy. I think I'd pinch the tops out, not let them get too wet or in full sun all day and see what happens. I can only see one or two there that looked limp but I can't see well enough

ID please

I'd forgotten that David

Wasn't there a bird on the farthing as well. A wren maybe?

Can you Overpower stinging nettles with wild plants???

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 20:58

Me too. Stinging nettles are wild plants and they can overpower anything shorter or anything that starts into growth later than themselves. Anything that's already established will win against new planting as well
