It's hardy and would be OK outside but black is dead. Have you a photo to show the extent of the black?

Can bare root deutzia and hibiscus share 60 cm pot for one season?

Plenty of oil seed rape for the pigeons

Today we had a  change from cutting and shredding blackthorn/bramble/briar.

We did dogwood, field maple, hornbeam and a dead conifer.

But this afternoon I went out and cut more blackthorn, still to shred

What am I?

If you have a tree in a hedgerow, the hedge underneath the tree canopy is thinner than the rest due to lack of light and nutients.
