100 Year old Hedge

Posted: 08/12/2017 at 18:34

It's hard on a plant to be cut back hard for a hundred years

All the new, lively growth is removed, leaving the worsn out parts

The newest leaves are the ones that do the most photosynthesis, nothing goes on for ever.

Giant cyclamen - all leaves no flowers

Posted: 07/12/2017 at 17:19

The hardy ones are generally sold with their proper names. C hederifolium and C. coum for 2.

Winter bedding cyclamen are C. persica I think (though not sure). Some people keep these alive but they wouldn't do in many gardens

Any with large bright coloured flowers and have leaves now, are not hardy.

Daffodils not flowering

what I'd do with those is mow the grass and forget about them. 

Overgrown grass

long grass always looks terrible after it's been cut.

Redwing is right

Plastic clearup

I have had;

Plastic sacks, bits of asbestos, glass, toys, bikes, carpets, brick rubble, lath and plaster, lumps of Tarmac, car parts, fridge, lumps of a large sheet metal fabrication, (no idea what), shoes, dozens of them. Rumour has it there's a Reliant Robin in there somewhere. If OH finds that he'll want to restore it

On the plus side, huge lumps of concrete which made great steps and enough hand-made bricks for the summerhouse. 

Much stuff still in there and I try not to bring it to the surface.

ID help please 🙂
