Thinking of adding wildlife benefit to your garden with trees or shrubs?

Thanks Jim, I'll have to find S. noctiflora.

I think maybe I grew bith nutans and noctiflora some years ago nut nutans is the only one that persisted.

Nicotians affinis is greatly night scented but I don't know if it's of benefit to any species other than us.

There'll be some green this year. If there isn't, it's dead.

I doubt if it will die.

That's sad. Once a tree has been 'stumped' it's never a beautiful shape again.

Not a recommended treatment for cherry plum.

If it were mine it would have to go.

Aralia, how to propagate by suckers

Posted: 01/03/2015 at 10:32

some suckers appear above ground before the roots are formed. I don't know about aralia, I haven't had one since moving here.

Have a bit of a dig down and see if your chosen sucker has a root system before you cut it off.

Looks interesting Jim. I'll have a proper look on the PC later on. Can't see enough on the screen of this little netbook.

re the night flowering catchfly, is that Silene nutans or another species? 

I like to look after the bats, they use our roof as a maternity unit and provide us with hours of pleasure in the summer.

Spring is sprung in your garden Marion

Which is the last hellebore, is it one of the species?

Yours would be green if you'd had them in a heated GH all winter Charley. 

and shrivel up when all that soft growth meets the real world
