Climbing rose - Tilehung wall

I wouldn't do that Mr Mustard. As well as the nails in tiles problem you'll have the bits of plant insinuating themselves between the tiles.

Quick fix storing plants in ground

It sounds well planned and should go fine. Any you can't get into their final postions before spring would probably be best left til the next autumn

New Magnolia looks dead after 4 weeks

I'd wait and see now, leaves being eaten doesn't neccessarily mean death, most plants will grow some new ones. Don't let it dry out but don't over water. The plant won't be using water with no leaves. Don't feed, same reason. Just let it rest and see if it recovers

Plants for dry areas

Introducing ivy to a hedge?

Posted: 10/06/2015 at 09:43

If I wanted a really neat hedge I wouldn't introduce anything to it

But I have a straggle of this and that round various parts of my garden and ivy, honeysuckle, bryonies and all manner of things run through it.

Introducing ivy to a hedge?

Posted: 10/06/2015 at 08:57

Agree with Logan, ivy is good but you need to control it, don't let it take over the whole hedge. When the hedge dies from lack of light the whole lot collapses into a sprawl. Great for wildlife if you have room. It is good for wildlife and if you have somewhere that you can grow it and allow it to reach flowering, go for it. If not, grow something else for wildlife.

Rather nice little thing though. Especially when it colours up at the end of it's life
