Guelder Rose

Posted: 29/01/2014 at 20:12

The birds are quick off the mark with rowan berries. I have S. hupehensis which berried very well this year. I thought the birds weren't interested then suddenly they found them and stripped it in a day. 

I've never tried grafting and budding, everything comes from seed. 

I might try some hardwood cuttings from the V. opulus, I never find seedlings about.

Bedding plants seedlings already!

Yes they will be early. the nigella should be fine, the cerinthes will if it's not too extreme. My cerinthes often seed before winter and some survive most years but there are losses

If you've got them planted in soil they'll be OK for weeks. No problems til they start growing and need more space. Make sure they are all planted with some soil round them, none left in a space to dry out (unlikely this year so far)

Guelder Rose

Common names are very confusing. Guelder rose isn't a rose and looks nothing like one. No prickles for a start. It's not even in the same family. I don't know where it got the name guelder rose

I'm always very pleased with mine, lovely autumn colour as well

Transplanting established hedges using machinery

I think it would be a waste of time. You'd have to cut them right back because the remaining damaged roots wouldn't be enough to sustain the tops or prevent rocking in the wind, so you'd lose the height anyway. 

With the amount of root damage from mechanical excavation, almost guaranteed to chop through loads of roots, they'd probably die anyway.

and then you'd be a year behind with a new hedge. If you look around the garden you may find some young ones to transplant.
