It's officially spring, I've been shopping

I'd protect the Nandina especially but might as well look after them all. Right up against the house or over freezing nights in the garage maybe. But don't keep any of them in a warm house

What were the neighbouring plants that were affected?

There are loads of plants that are not susceptible to rust, you were unlucky in your choice if everything succumbed.

If they were outside at the GC they should be OK  but if you give us a list we'll know for sure. 

Stag beetle habitat

Any tree rots down eventually so plum will.

Willow is quick

Blackthorn is slow.

I have heaps of mixed logs for the beetles etc but they still risk their lives using the log pile for the woodburner Most of that pile doesn't rot enough but there's always a few

Bite the bullet and get the new ones in Chiara. Their ugly shapes will remind you every time you look at them.

You won't see branches for some time, you'll see an outbreak of straight spindly sticks.

I wouldn't go for too much pre-matured. Young trees establish far more easily

I'd let your man remove them, and pay for the new ones, but I'd be wary of letting him get involved with the choosing and planting

Are Morrisons bulbs any good ??

If you've just bought them from an indoor shop I'd harden them off over the next few weeks and then keep them outside

Thinking of adding wildlife benefit to your garden with trees or shrubs?

Thanks Jim, I'll have to find S. noctiflora.

I think maybe I grew bith nutans and noctiflora some years ago nut nutans is the only one that persisted.

Nicotians affinis is greatly night scented but I don't know if it's of benefit to any species other than us.

There'll be some green this year. If there isn't, it's dead.

I doubt if it will die.

That's sad. Once a tree has been 'stumped' it's never a beautiful shape again.

Not a recommended treatment for cherry plum.

If it were mine it would have to go.

Aralia, how to propagate by suckers

Posted: 01/03/2015 at 10:32

some suckers appear above ground before the roots are formed. I don't know about aralia, I haven't had one since moving here.

Have a bit of a dig down and see if your chosen sucker has a root system before you cut it off.
