Cistus Populifolius Major

I'm sure some people manage them much better than me BR

I'm not a careful gardener. Sometimes I think I'm not a gardener at all. I'd be quite happy sowing seeds, pricking out, dividing up and generally messing about with plants and never touch the garden

It will be more contained in a pot. They tend to wander a bit in the ground.

I think that one is the hardiest

Cistus Populifolius Major

Hi BR

I've never met that one but I think cistus generally are a bit like lavender, they don't like being cut back into old wood. The cuttings to start again sounds like a good plan. I don't know how long they usually live but I've never had one for long. 5 years maybe. Other people may do better. I tend to let them get overgrown and straggly from competition so they need a hard trim and goodbye

Tree problems.

Bracket fungus doesn't so much kill trees as grow on wood that is already rotting. I wouldn't keep a tree with Bracket fungus unless it was in a place where it could do no harm when it crashed.

Some passion flowers are hardier than others SS. Do you know which one it is?

Willow Hedge (I think)

You're right re Alan's plant Fairy

DD willow isn't invasive in the sense that ground elder is, but the roots are extensive and can be damaging and the annual growth is enormous,  more so with every year

I only found one nest, usually more than that. 

Advice for getting rid of plant

Answer to  question 1. No. A weedkiller works on green leaves, that's gone brown.

Just put soil in the hole.

If the mildish weather holds you'll be OK to sow grass seed, if it doesn't make it have another go in  spring. Worth a try though, if it were me I'd sow.

Questions aren't silly.
