Why is my Virburnum fragrant tree loosing it's bark?

Posted: 21/04/2014 at 17:30

Sorry but bark is essential to the life of the tree.If it's coming off all around the bottom anything above will die. Have you a photo of what is happening?

Wow Dove

So what plant / weed is this?

Butterbur is Petasites hybridus and winter heliotrope is P. fragrans.

I don't think I know either well enough to tell them apaprt

I don't know why lads love either Bilje. There's nothing romantic or erotic about that smell.


Osmanthus layering

Posted: 21/04/2014 at 14:22

Hi gang

My Osmanthus ?burkwoodii is going downhill, literally. It was at the top of a slope and has been sliding down for some time. This last winter more erosion  occurred and the shrub is now almost horizontal along the slope. Can I pin this down as a layering? The stem I would like to use is between 3/4" and 1" thick. My fear is of rotting, I know not everything likes that sort of treatment

Same as my bits of paper.

I think that's Artemesia abronatum, lad's love and many other names

If not, its Artemesia something else, there are several shrubby ones
