Apple tree dying but 6ft sucker in front

apple trees are grafted, the suckers will be from the rootstock. The could be a tree but probably not worth waiting for

well Kelly, if you look at your own profile you'll find you've made 3 posts on this forum, all mentioning this company. I think this is what we on the forum call advertising.

Making a meadow

Posted: 16/07/2017 at 13:49

Chemicals is not the way to go for a wildflower meadow.

There are plants that grow in grass, ragged robin and Ox-eye daisies will, though Ragged Robin needs a moistish soil to do well, poppies and cornflowers won't. 

Flowers in grass are more appropriate for the setting and as the trees grow and shade the plants those poppy/cornflower type annuals will not do.

What do you hate most about gardening?

I hate clearing up after I've spent a few happy hours throwing weeds and prunings over the grass and paths. Especially if I haven't  kept compost heap weeds apart from shredding heap

Grass for an orchard?

Posted: 16/07/2017 at 10:45

any old cheapo grass seed will do if you're not looking for a bowling green 

But this is just my opinion. I'm interested in plants and wildlife. Anything flat and green that can be walked on is good enough for me

Grass for an orchard?

I'd just mow. If you keep mowing regularly it will be green. A flat mono-culture grass lawn would look out of place in an orchard. Wait til the bulbs have died down each year then mow regularly through the rest of the season

Weed/tree suckers?

tree suckers, yes

Maple, no

more like plum

Paul, if someone gets up your nose, that ignore function is very useful.  Anything else is just encouragement
