Knowing when to stop

I've no objection to the use of glyphosate but it's very difficult in amongst the desirables

That is true

Seeding advice for a new gardener

In pots outside NG. Then you can bring them inside if necessary in winter. Stand them up on something to keep the rabbits off, 

I'm a bit dim and haven't really caught on to what you're growing. Are they hardy plants?

Dunno WW but can't think of anything better.

I do pruning and tree stuff through the winter. Shredding is a nice warming job then

 

Half dead plum tree

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 21:31

That's the way it goes NG. The cultivated plum is grafted onto a wild one for the rootstock. I don't know if the plum would grow from cuttings but grafting is the way it's done

You're right WW. Just need to get to grips with bindweed now.

and all those other branches

more a saw than a lopper job though. Some of the branches are logs for the woodburner

I never know when to stop. I went out this morning to take branch off a tree paeony. So much growth this tear I could sit on one of the seats. Then another branch making the steps very narrow, so off it comes. Branches of Viburnum bodnantense are crowding a choisya, off they come. and that one hiding the solomon's seal, and that bit of Cotoneaster lacteus is stifling those hellebores and Molly the Witch.

So now I have a shredding mountain again, not a pleasant summer job. It will have to wait

I think you need a good big shredder Jap. It reduces branches and twigs from a mountain to a small hill

Kilmarnock Willow

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 20:47

I should think the new growth is very willow-like

These plants are grafted onto some other willow rootstock at that is throwing up shoots. Remove them, they'll be bigger than Kilmarnock in no time
