A ground covering layer can be mown for a start, It makes it easier to find the separate stems to pull. It's one of the easier plants to remove (compared to bindweed, ground elder and worse)

Red robin help needed!

I would cut lower than that. Those two stem up against each other will be where the rot sets in. Maybe has set in.

If Verdun is right about 2 plants you may be able to separate them and remove the dead one completely

What is this I know it's germinating? :)

Outside, it's a hardy native tree.

See if you can find some more. You need more than one to get nuts. Not that you'll get nuts, the squirrels will be quicker than you 

Anyone done any gardening today?

I can hear a lawn mower

Not mine.

I have stuffed lots of dried last year growth through the shredder. Very dry and dusty, still coughing.

Plant it now daisy or it will die.

I'd put it in a pot til it's a bit bigger

Need help germinating some old bulbs w/ pic

I fear those are very dead. Some bulbs do need a cold spell to trigger flowering but they need to be in the soil and not dried out.

 

 

Willow Trees

Don't buy them for that reason Cat. They'll suck up the water in the summer but won't make a bit of difference between October and March. 

and they're not the only things that grow in boggy ground.

I'd leave them and think about it. Visualize them in your garden. If you have room and like the idea get something smaller. You can plant any time if you get container grown plants.

Have you seen them growing in gardens? interesting, useful for dried arrangements, but I don't find them attractive.

If they've just got hessian round bare roots and have been like that for 7 weeks already I'd leave them at the GC.

Tortuous is the word but tortured describes them well

Have you got plenty of space? They're potentially big trees.

what are you excited about?
