Yes, it's here thank you.  You're working OK

Seeds are up

It's very exciting. I've only had the pink ones til now. I just hope they are what it said on the packet. They were from a plant society seed list, not a seed company nor our forum seed swap.

Pollarding lime trees

Certainly is. That and the 6 enormous willows we took out a couple of years ago. Plus the two dealt with by the tree surgeon  because they were leaning over the road and we wimped out of doing it ourselves.

Thanks Dove. It's on this winter's list as is the Norway Maple threatening the wires further along. But I think the NM is on the way out so will just be removed.

Should have said, it is a lime. 

It does have a branching arrangement  that could work but I fear it may result in die-back of the remains and death of the tree. But it's either that or the electric wires. Might end up removing it altogether.

I think the previous owners of our house lacked foresight, it's not the only tree planted too close to the wires. We've dealt with most of them now fortunately

Work, I remember that. Leaving here in the dark and getting back in the dark. 

Pollarding lime trees

and another question. Can you pollard a tree that must be 50 years old but never been pollarded. It's not a big healthy looking tree, it's about as tall as our electric pole or a little more. and its branches keep dying back and dropping off

What can be killing off my plants?

Hello Donna

Vine weevil is one of the biggest pot pests. Have you tipped out and checked for larvae?
