Laurel trees

Posted: 13/03/2015 at 20:33

Mine went yellow in the first year, many years ago now. My neighbour suggested Miracle gro. They went green after that but have had yellow times since. They are now huge but some are quite yellow. 

I have  a short length of hedge, about a dozen plant,s that has always been green. They're in poor soil and frequently disappear under weeping willows but they are the happiest.

Anyone done any gardening today?

None at all

Strolled round the garden with a friend this morning then another couple of friends this afternoon.

I think I'll have to go and water the babies though.

Can you identify these plants in my garden?

Does A have any scent about the leaves at all?

In my experience laurels have a tendency to go yellow with any stress.

What did you spray them with? (just interested)

Check for drowning as Jimmy suggests, otherwise I'd leave them alone till spring growth starts then give them a feed.

Can You Help Identify?

Ribes sanguineum at the top I can see without enlarging.

I can't enlarge them,  so less confident of one of the winter flowering honeysuckles for the second.

Good idea, I love growing shrubs and trees from seed

Dividing Aubretia

Posted: 11/03/2015 at 19:03

I haven't grown aubrieta for ages but I don't think it divides, have a look at the middle underneath, if there's just one stem coming up, you can't divide. and I don't remember it rooting down

But you can take cuttings

one of seven, they don't belong in the uk, I'm sure they flower and reproduce just fine in their native country.

When the bush is dropping some pick the rest off and sow them, you can squeeze them out if you like. Don't heat them, just leave them outside, in the shade, in a pot of gritty compost. I don't know how long they take, might be next spring

The x in the name denotes a hybrid,  your babies won't be the same as the parent

It won't be me Hostafan, I have lots of leaves and the odd flower.

I noticed at a NT property I visited last week that where, a few years ago, there were lots, now there aren't
