Cistus Populifolius Major

Posted: 09/10/2014 at 13:44

Hi BR

I've never met that one but I think cistus generally are a bit like lavender, they don't like being cut back into old wood. The cuttings to start again sounds like a good plan. I don't know how long they usually live but I've never had one for long. 5 years maybe. Other people may do better. I tend to let them get overgrown and straggly from competition so they need a hard trim and goodbye

Tree problems.

Bracket fungus doesn't so much kill trees as grow on wood that is already rotting. I wouldn't keep a tree with Bracket fungus unless it was in a place where it could do no harm when it crashed.

Some passion flowers are hardier than others SS. Do you know which one it is?

Willow Hedge (I think)

You're right re Alan's plant Fairy

DD willow isn't invasive in the sense that ground elder is, but the roots are extensive and can be damaging and the annual growth is enormous,  more so with every year

I only found one nest, usually more than that. 

Advice for getting rid of plant

Answer to  question 1. No. A weedkiller works on green leaves, that's gone brown.

Just put soil in the hole.

If the mildish weather holds you'll be OK to sow grass seed, if it doesn't make it have another go in  spring. Worth a try though, if it were me I'd sow.

Questions aren't silly.

I had a google and saw them. Gimmick was the first word that came to mind

Maybe crocosmia, or one of those we called montbretia that hung around in the garden without much effect

Be glad your snowdrops have survived being dried out and planted in September. They often don't. That's why they're sold 'in the green' in spring

Also check they are snowdrops. Grape hyacinths are the most likely to be making leaves now
