Used correctly weed killers kill weeds. The problem is, there's a never ending supply of more weeds waiting to germinate and take their place

Tips on planting hazel trees?

Posted: 05/06/2015 at 21:11

Hazel can be cut back (coppiced) every few years and provides good logs and sticks.

Cut itback in winter unless you've got an emergency

Dig up the saplings when the leaves drop and plant them where you want them, they'll be fine. Tough as old boots

If yoiu do them now the chances of survival are much less sure

I'm sure you can find a landscaper that will give you the answer you want but it may not be a good landscaper. It's hard for plants to get established in the heat of summer and you won't find a reputable firm selling bare root plants at this time of year. Bare root and small is best to get trees established. Small plants grow away quickly, large ones very often struggle 

Plant ID please

Might be leggy, it grows according to its circumstances. I like it but my garden is different from Berghill's.

If I was trying to grow alpines in gravel I would view it differently I'm sure

Plant ID please

When a plant has been in a pot for too long the roots go round in circles in a pot shape, become tightly packed and need help to move outwards. I have an old dinner fork I tease them out with.

I think daily is too much watering. I water things in, very well, a couple of cans each, then leave them for a few days or more depending on weather then do it again.

And if they're root bound you need to loosen them up a bit
