Moulds or liner?

Posted: 31/05/2014 at 14:12

Liner, then you can have the pond exactly the size and shape you want and your planting shelves to suit you. It's also less of a problem to get level, you can add or take away some soil from under the edges to make it right. and you don't have to worry about whether you've got it all supported or not. It moulds to the shape you've dug

That's often the way of it yc.  Sometimes I'm looking for an excuse to dispose of something, other times trying to preserve something that's just a waste of space.

I doubt it but someone might turn up and disagree later on.

How much pleasure this shrub has given you over the last few years. Is it worth the effort?

It's June, if there's no sign of leaves I think it's dead or as near dead as makes no difference.

 

Cornus Canadensis

Seeing obelixx's mention of G. macrorrhizum reminds me that there is a white one. Not as strong growing as the various pinks but looking very good in my garden now.

C canadensis would never cope here, dry, alkaline and a howling gale

Red Robin shrub

It sounds as though it's dead or dying. I don't know why. Drowning has been responsible for some deaths this last winter, I've had some otherwise unexplained losses.

I doubt if it can be revived. Green under the bark isn't proof of life, only that there was life until recently.

You don't mention leaves. A plant can live without flowers but not leaves.

Has it  got any?

If the roots were tightly packed and wound round in circles then it would be a good idea to do that

If in doubt watch it, enjoy it but don't eat it would be more my take on it Mike

It's perennial so will end up with a big root.

Mine has become very shaded, the hazels are due a coppicing next winter, I never see red berries. That will be why I still only have one plant

The other plant that's called briony, white briony, Brionia dioica has a root that looks like one of those long white radishes, mooli. I have lots of those and I do get berries.l
