dying cherry blossom branches

Posted: 04/04/2017 at 17:06

the dead bits need cutting off back to a healthy branch. Don't leave stumps, cut back the whole of a dead/dying branch to where it  joins a healthy branch. Stumps and dead bits are where infection sets in

The support bands look too tight to me, that's just like putting a tourniquet on your leg, it cuts off circulation. A tree that size is probably holding the stake up, It shouldn't need staking at that size

I've got that in a deep dark thicket, it doesn't flower much there. North wall but open could do better 

(I didn't plant it in a deep dark thicket, that encroached over time)

Bluebells where they shouldn't be!!

They'll survive whatever you do to them.

and if you move them to somewhere else they'll still be there because you never get them all

I wouldn't mix them, these little tulips come from hot dry areas, daffs like something damper. Also, you won't see the tulips for daff leaves

Both L pileata and L. nitida are known as Box Honeysuckle. Make sure you get Lonicera pileata. Lonicera nitida is tall, straggly and comparatively dull in leaf

My mum moved house 4 years ago and moved hers with her.  She had no flowers for 3 years then a big bloomlast year.  I was informed they sulk when moved. 

See original post

 Mine didn't sulk but your mum's was probably out of the ground longer if she was moving house

which are brown, the flowers or the leaves? 

Flowers don't last long and go brown when their time is over

Brown leaves is more serious

I think it needs planting out. They don't mind being moved, that's one of many gardening myths. If that's not possible, a bigger pot on its own
