Daylight might be beneficial as well

Put the stuff on the roots not mix it in with the back fill

I'm sure a honeysuckle would benefit as much as a rose.

Ugley does have a WI (or it did when I lived around that area). They called it the 'WI of Ugley' which was disappointing

It will Ok if you have a large garden and want a potentially huge tree. Take care though, you could end up with a charmless thug. If it's balsam poplar you'll know next spring for sure, the scent from the buds breaking is very strong. You could probably smell them now if you did a scratch and sniff.

Christopher Lloyd said he'd never known any monocot get HF. So if you want something woody there's bamboo. But that might bring its own problems.

I lost 2 viticella clematis (maybe HF) but a seedling has grown to replace them and is still doing fine after 5 years.

There's HF in my garden. I've lost a few things, will probably lose more but there' are plenty of things totally unaffected, including an ash, about 10 years old, growing from the stump of a willow that died from HF. 

Go for strong growers suited to the soil and aspect rather than anything temperamental. There's HF in most woodland but all the trees aren't dead. It's part of woodland life.

FL. maybe because the trees are beautiful 365 days a year and you can see the fruiting bodies of HF for about a week.
