Ceanothus TREE!

Posted: 03/08/2017 at 13:59

Concha is a Ceaonthus cultivar.

Hard to find precise answers to some things, especially on a forum where different people will have tried different things. Plants don't read the books so we all try what we think will work, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't.

You won't find a guarantee of success. You may find someone who will tell you exactly what to do because it worked for them (or in some cases because they read it on a website) but it's no guarantee it will work for you. 

Sometimes you just have to get out the saw and hope for the best

stump paint is out now. Breathing is in.

They have a reputation for not being long-lived.  Cut it as you'd like it to be, but be prepared for a death

Personally I'd either leave it alone or remove it.

I think that's Nicandra physaloides, aka Shoo-fly plant. 

aconitum problem

I have ome that don't flower reliably, mostly the tall, late flowering ones. Napellus is OK. I've always put it down to my soil being too dry. 

What plants are these?

definitely not cannabis but not sure re Basil. They look very familiar.
