Invasive roots

I have a lot of trees and it is difficult to get things establishes sometimes. A good muck/compost  mulch and watering til things are established helps

Invasive roots

large trees have large roots and have no respect for boundaries. They will spread way beyond the canopy in some cases. They look like tree/shrub roots to me

I this a weed or flowering plant?

Posted: 28/08/2016 at 19:41

some kind of euphorbia, E. peplus maybe. I think most gardeners class that as a weed

the top one is a willowherb, very pretty, I have some, food plant for the Elephant Hawkmoth caterpillar.

Most people class those as weeds.

The other looks like a potentilla, not one of the weedy ones. 

Thank you

Position and pruning of Sorbus aria 'Lutescens'

Posted: 28/08/2016 at 14:46

I have 4 Sorbus aria, though not 'Lutescens' One is crispy, the rest are not. I've seen this before with trees at this time of year and so far they're all recovered.

Is washing up water ok to water plants with?

I can't see how it would harm anything. You could tip it on soil rather than leaves then it definitely wouldn't. I wash up in the sink, no bowl, but then it goes to the septic tank so it's still available to plants in that area
