Posted: 29/04/2014 at 09:55

The advantage of choisya is that it's good and shiny all year. Some of the best flowering shrubs have nothing to offer for the rest of the year

Dying sumac?

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 09:47

Are they your trees Izzy? 

It doesn't sound good, once things start leaning and dying back it's just a matter of time

If they're yours you could cut them back to  good wood and see what happens. What happens may be suckering which is good or bad depending on how you view it. 

Stags Horn Sumach vs House Foundations

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 09:41

You may have been advised to keep them in pots so they couldn't sucker which can be a pain in the orifice rather than a danger to foundations.

My opinion is that the sumach isn't bit enough at the top, to have big enough roots to damage foiundations.

Talkback: How to grow on plug plants

Posted: 28/04/2014 at 23:01

I think getting plugs to flower in 5 or 6 weeks is over optimistic, maybe the odd one but not a display.

But go and see what the GC has, maybe something a bit bigger than plugs and a bit further forward.

dig them up when they don't please you any more or when you want to plant something else.
