what compost ?

Posted: 13/05/2015 at 09:31

I use a mix of seed, MPC and grit. Seed on its own I find too hard and it's easy to break roots when pricking out. MPC alone is easy to get too soggy and mouldy.

A photo would help. Missing bark is important whatever it looks like underneath, that's the growing part of the tree.

If you want a wildlife garden forget the sprays. You need to achieve a balance of life forms and wiping some out won't take you there, it has effects right up the food chain

Tree diseases are mostly specific to species and are unlikely to spread to the others you mention.

Is it possible this tree is one of the variegated ones, some of which are very suceptible to frost/wind and anything else that comes their way, and that the plain green part has reverted?

 

another ID please

That's odd Logan, I can see it and so could landgirl. Lots of strange happenings with forum and devices I think.

Wendy, if this is L.henryi you've got a very large plant.

MYSTERY PLANT?

Lovely fat seed pods. I'd let it seed, or catch them and scatter them in a shady spot. Collect the seed but don't save it, sow it.

I think it's one of this sort

Ignore the colour in the link, they range from white, through pink to very dark purple

Anyone else get slightly "rare" bird visitors?

We've got a mistle thrush family. We haven't had those about here for some years. Not seen a song thrush lately though

Edd's plant looks like Henbane, Hyocyamus niger.

Amy's Solanum nigrum

I'd like to see a pic of the OP in situ
