Leaning tree

Posted: 18/02/2014 at 20:31

If this is a real 'on its own roots' Sorbus aria you can cut it right back to base (coppice it) and it will regrow. If it's a fancy grafted one you can still cut it back but you'll have whatever it's grafted onto regrowing rather than the fancy cultivar

Hollyhock queeny

It will be a hybrid or a cultivar. Anything called Queeny isn't a species so will not seed true. However, it may be close or you may get something else interesting

If you've collected enough Jordan you could try different germination methods. I'd put them in pots. Some you could just put outside to get whatever they get by way of weather. Some you could warm up and put some in the fridge to chill first.  You could move them very easily in pots. Or just keep them dry til you're ready to start

I love them. I don't know what they taste like

I'd like stainless steel, maybe on the shopping list for this year?

what needs supporting with canes and garden string? specifically gladioli...

Hessian is kinder but probably wouldn't support the weight of a rose or clematis as the plants get heavier and the string starts rotting. But it would support clematis til it clings on itself. Roses won't do that.

What climbers to what support Pam? Hessian string is fine for annual use but doesn't have a long life
