Birch trees

Hi Rubi

I can't see your pic

3 foot might be a bit close but I have seen 3 planted together, so they look like one multi-stemmed tree, that is very effective.

They grow quite quickly and never look as good once you've cut them back

Rain will be fine, it's too dry here and mine aren't brilliant.

Large trees are more difficult to establish than small ones and are more likely to fail.

In theory a container grown tree can be planted anytime.

How far away is the nearest property? I don't think birch is a big offender re roots, not like willow and poplar. 

They do seed around, most native trees (and some non-natives) do.

There are some lovely birches with very white trunks but much more expensive

I can't see your pic

I think that's emptied my store of birch knowledge

Which one is it Laura?

Campanula Pritchards variety how tall ?

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 20:51

I think woottens is closer. Mine didn't get quite that tall but they were in poor soil.

Hi Paddy

How long have they been where they are now?

Wind flower is a common name for anemone. 

I think you have a white Anemone blanda there. They seed, not sure if white seeds reliably white, the default colour may be the mauve.

Just let them seed, they will. Or put a pot under the seed head as it ripens. Don't save it, sow it. 

Nicotiana affinis seedlings

You don't often see the plants for sale, well, I don't

I've no experience of hardening off from growing indoors, I use a cold GH.

I find this year's seedlings flower before the ones that are perennial Edd. Just like some of the salvias, eg patens.

Not as huge as N, sylvestris  affinis more reliable for me. The evening scent, fantastic
