Coral Spot?

Posted: 15/01/2017 at 19:46

coral spot is very orange so may be some different fungus. But that wood is dead, you can tell by the colour change. Cutting back to just above the last healthy bud is the best you can do. Don't leave stumps with no buds at the end, they will die back and the problem will persist

The two are separated very early on in the plant kingdom

Pines are gymnosperms, hollies are angiosperms

I haven't got anything even nearly out Marion. Last year there were lots before the end of December.

I fail to get all mine cut back every year. It doesn't seem to make any difference apart from being able to see the scruffy old leaves. 

Helenium advice

Chiltern Seeds have heleniums, they're easy from seed but if you want those oranges and the shorter ones you need to buy plants you like and divide them.

Germinating seeds on wet paper towels

It's one of the methods mentioned here

which was my seed sowing bible for many years when there wasn't much on the internet.

I've never tried it, the sort of plants I grow need the outdoor method.

I think you need to deal with the bramble first, nettles will seed for years, you can eliminate the plants you have but not the seeds. Nettle is easily dealt with by mowing. I have loads of nettles but none in mown grass. Ivy is capable of making long low growths below mower blade level so mowing doesn't do for that..

It's dig or chemical whichever way you choose but I wouldn't leave them, especially bramble
