Resin vs Sap vs Pitch

Posted: 25/09/2014 at 20:19

 pitch may be anything sticky and thick, Resins, bitumen, anything. Not a precise thing.

I think maybe our resin is pitch in the US

Advice needed: what evergreen/colour all year round shrubs?

For now, Eleagnus ebbingei. The scent is amazing. That will do sun or shade.

Dig a hole and plonk it in Poppy. Lots of shrubs in my garden were done like that. 

Make sure they're well rooted before you move them. If there are shoots with roots at intervals on a stem they can be separated to make more plants.

All the digging and muck might make for stronger, faster growing plants (might) , but yours will be tougher

I think I'd prepare the soil now and transplant in spring.

A good dig and either some muck, or fertiliser and a mulch.

Are the babies seedlings or have they layered? Seedlings of a cultivar won't be all the same but probably not different enough to worry about

Milkweed in the UK is an annual euphorbia (weed)
