overgrown garden HELP PLEASE

Posted: 28/04/2014 at 21:09

I can see a Lonicera pileata in there, low growing, evergreen, small leaves. Nothing special but worth keeping til you've got something else going., unless you're doing a clear-fell.

Might be worth doing some close-ups of any shrubs and posting them to see what they are and how best to deal with them in the short and long term

Direct sow seeds

I wouldn't mulch, mix in some compost with the soil and just sow them.

Mulching is good around perennials and shrubs.

It might be an idea to get your mega-weed IDd so you know what you're dealing with.

Mine is splendid this year

Resolva

Annie, you probably need to start a new thread, this one is about Resolva and the rose experts (not me) won't be looking.

But I do know that 7 leaflets doesn't mean a sucker. and that suckers don't grow from half way up a stem, they come from the root

They don't look like lilac leaves. Could be a Prunus, P.padus maybe

Rose suckers

You could try the weedkiller on a glove trick, wipe it up the leaves. You'd need to be careful not to drip it on the plants you want

Cleaning plastic plant labels

I use both sides by which time plastic fatigue has set in and they snap. I slosh them around in a bowl of soapy water before the second use. Mine have a long time in the pots, it's shrubs and perennials I'm growing.

Stratification of Seeds

You can't beat fresh seed gg. Lots of those said to need a chill will germinate in days if they just drop to the ground.

Is this a weed?

I think it depends who you ask

Euphorbia amygdaloides . Only fit for the wilder parts of a large garden
