Tree help

I think I would have the whole lot removed. It will be a recurrent problem as long as it stays, both from rapid growth at the top and roots.

Dying Eleagnus!

Posted: 02/01/2015 at 14:02

I've had dying back problems with these eleagnus, even the non variegated version. I cut one back to stumps and it regrew, so far so good. You need to watch it even harder for reversion to green after that.

I would doubt Vine weevil or any bug but have no better suggestion

Nicotiana affinis, perennial but borderline hardy. I mostly grow as an annual. Lovely evening scent.

Hesperis matronalis, sweet rocket, that's biennial though

That's why I don't grow skimmias. 

They may do better in acid soil but I've never been in a position to try that.

It would need a very thick mulch to sort out my weeds, 18inches might do it. But probably not, I have hogweed and bindweed emerging at the top of 3 foot heaps of shreddings in summer

drooping hypericum

I think a photo would help. It would show if they were drooping from poor health, or, as you suggest, leaning towards the light.

Which hypericums are they?
