Can I save this tree?

Posted: 30/10/2014 at 15:38

I wouldn't hold out a lot of hope for that one. Water will sit in the broken area and rot the trunk. A new branch won't grow from there. You can keep it while it still gives you pleasure or get rid of it now and plant a new tree. 

A cedar of some sort I think.

Hi anderson, glyphosate doesn't need applying once a week. It works on strongly growing green growth. Respraying something that's already died back, or is in the process of dying back, is a waste of time and money.  A second spraying may be needed if new growth occurs. Don't rotavate til it's really dead, all those little bits will grow.

What to plant under a tree?

Of the geraniums obelixx mentions I have found macrorrihizum to be very reliable, dalmaticum a bit inclined to fade away. There's also the hybrid between the 2, halfway in size, G x cantabrigiensis, comes in at least 2 colours. But I still rate macrorrhizum as number one.

Can you help identify this plant (v. 2) ?

There's no light or air for weed seedlings under P russelliana

Came across this ground covering shrub but need help identifying it. x2 photos

Alkaline or acid soil Paul?

Was it spreading by throwing up new stems or just spreading out?

Any evidence of seeds/berries

Yes WO, I haven't tried Aldi mix but lots of mixed seed contains stuff the birds can't or don't eat. I don't buy mixes any more.

This has been discussed fairly recently, I'm not sure I've found the right links though.

My 3 flowers are too small a sample for me to claim any expertise
