I've never seen it fall off.
Have you got a plan for stopping it when it gets to the top?
Before it gets under the tiles.
It won't beat us. We have chain saw
The ones that have thinned out are probably too shaded. They've thinned out and no longer serve their purpose of stopping the north westerlies
John Innes isn't a make it's a type of compost. Several people make it, some badly I'm sure.
I find it a bit stiff and have broken roots when pricking out, which is why I do the mix.
I agree about the laurel. I have some. Some are OK but some have thinned out a lot at the bottom so the kids can't use them for hide and seek any more. Then I cut bits back and other bits die back. Coral spot moves in.
If I were starting again there would be no laurel
I agree, not a gimmick. I usually do a mix of seed compost, very fine grit (aquarium shop) and a bit of multipurpose.
Then some less fine gravel on top of the seeds
I wouldn't grow anything up it, it will fall over
Could you plants a rowan, or any other small tree,a bit further away from the laurels?
I'll bet the bluebells are still there Deb
Sorry MM, I think it's the end for the laburnum. too much rot. If it's rocking the roots are probably going as well
Yellow irises are so tough it won't matter. The other two I'd leave til summer. Water lilies need to be in growth. I've never grown arum lilies
leaf miners are small. I've never found one yet, just the evidence of their activity.
They're probably visible to a good naked eye but I can't focus down that far
