I'd cut out the dead/sick branches and see what you've got left. Anything without bark, or changes of colour in patches on the bark, (as in pic 2 on the branch coming off the one that goes to the right) has had it.
One of my laburnums has been loosing the odd branch for years but still survives.
I think roses are moved when dormant but I should think you'd get away with moving one that hasn't established yet any time before real spring.
Compare size of rose against size and strength of fence. I've not grown that one
I doubt if you've killed it. Could get 2 growing stems now
That one isn't much of a problem. Just comes in with one unpleasant post then sits back and watches.
I was good a passing exams. My short term memory is good.
Swot up, write down, pass exam, forget.
I know nothing now
Do that David. All these things are of interest to lots of us. I have a hit and miss approach to growing things that could do with some educational input
I always have a picture in my mind of someone much as Clerington describes. Probably doing unmentionable things to himself as he reads our responses.
I agree, water in well to settle the soil and leave them alone for a while. Then do the same again when they start to dry out a bit. Cutting them back will make them bush out and there's less top growth for the roots to support in the early stages
I love lichens, they give a mature feel to a garden
That's the way to go Tracey, report then ignore button. Don't let him know you've even noticed
