Hawthorn is an excellent choice. Very reliable and good for wildlife. It lends itself to pruning and general hacking about far better than the other two. 


can I prune my primroses

Posted: 18/04/2014 at 19:18

I grow the natives, P. veris and vulgaris, cowslip and primrose. They seed into grass paths and get mowed, often before they've finished flowering, but they come back every year

Hi Jack, you need to give them plenty of space for the future. None of them will look as impressive if they're squashed by another. Then you need to think about the amount of shade cast in your garden. That might not be a problem, I like shade and shade plants, you might as well

Can you get a photo? Your description sounds like mould and the fact that you can't hose it off suggests that as well

What grows in dark/dry areas?

The greens and whites look good in shade.  Bright colours don't look their best

Yes, that doesn't look like the weedy one. How many plants are there. The weed never comes in singles

A photo would help

I have lichen all over one of my laburnums but it doesn't kill the branches.


pruning shrubs for growth

I have a multi-stemmed laurel. Some of the branches were leaning over the road so we cut them right off, back to the ground. There is now a nice bushy plant on half the laurel. This winter we'll take the rest off and we'll be back to a bush.

This is Jasminum polyanthum? I don't think that's  very hardy , you might need to pot anyway

Transport needed for flooded gardens

Hi Rosie,

A square metre  or metre and a half required for mine. They'll go in the back of my car with the back seats down but wouldn't go in a small boot.

I can do 50 miles no problem,a bit more maybe. 

These are the plants

 Ignore the euphorbia creeping in from the side, that's in the ground.

Not much of a pic is it but I'm not much of a photographer
