Ivy out of control!

Posted: 05/04/2014 at 18:16

I've removed it from lots of places in this garden. Still got plenty, useful cover for bird/mammal/insec.t The flowers and berries are good as well.

Be careful pulling it off the fence unless it's good and solid. I haven't found the need to glyphosate later but it may depend on what sort of soil you're pulling it off. If you're got it on any otherwise empty ground a mower is an excellent tool

Frogs deal with the slugs Heather, cheaper than nematodes.  

The gist of Marineliliums post is that if you stop poisoning things the natural predators take over. It works OK for me

Read the instructions before you open them?

That's what I do. I'm  incapable of opening any packet or box without completely destroying it

A true gardener Denise, 

Liquidamber is beautiful.

They self seed easily in the pond edge so I'd set them in very wet compost,

Mine were originally in a bag from Sainsbury's not from seed

A chicken wandered past my window last evening. Must ask around the neighbours  to see if any missing. Fox dinner by now probably

looking for prunus!

This tree isn't in the RHS Plantfinder so I think we can assume it isn't available in the UK.

The same, or more or less the same, might be available with a different cultivar name. That's why I suggested asking at a large tree nursery, one where people know about tress, not a GC. 

Probably not a job for a TV presenter either.
