Invasive roots

Posted: 28/08/2016 at 19:50

large trees have large roots and have no respect for boundaries. They will spread way beyond the canopy in some cases. They look like tree/shrub roots to me

I this a weed or flowering plant?

Posted: 28/08/2016 at 19:41

some kind of euphorbia, E. peplus maybe. I think most gardeners class that as a weed

Weeds?

Posted: 28/08/2016 at 19:38

the top one is a willowherb, very pretty, I have some, food plant for the Elephant Hawkmoth caterpillar.


Most people class those as weeds.


The other looks like a potentilla, not one of the weedy ones. 

Thank you

Position and pruning of Sorbus aria 'Lutescens'

Posted: 28/08/2016 at 14:46

I have 4 Sorbus aria, though not 'Lutescens' One is crispy, the rest are not. I've seen this before with trees at this time of year and so far they're all recovered.

Is washing up water ok to water plants with?

I can't see how it would harm anything. You could tip it on soil rather than leaves then it definitely wouldn't. I wash up in the sink, no bowl, but then it goes to the septic tank so it's still available to plants in that area

Viburnum Tinus - pruning group1 or 8?

Posted: 28/08/2016 at 14:40

I think I'd prune after it flowered. that gives time for plenty of greening up through the summer

Is there a large tree close by?

I think that about sums up what I said Verdun, wildlife like bees and butterflies.


Does 'etc' include the very specific food plants for the larval stage of all those butterflies?


No caterpillars, no butterflies. Basic biology.


My last word on the subject, I recognise a brick wall when I come up against one.
