TREE REMOVAL

I'm pretty easy about diseases but I think I wouldn't do that. HF lives on tree roots and I would mulch woody plants with it

Mine loses its leaves in severe winters but you can see buds ready to open.

Bits of mine have started to die though, the hedge dates from 1960, had been severely neglected for years, tall enough to tangle in the phone wires til we gave it a short back and sides a few years ago. 

One cause of death here is having its stems nibbled at ground level. I blame the voles of which we have lots.

We do have HF in the garden but, as far as I'm aware, not close to the hedge.That's probably the one thing that would affect other shrubs, most diseases are specific to certain plants.

Do Bay Trees grow on stalks or are they static/ grafted?

I can't see the pic but bay grows on its own roots and sucker to make more.

I don't know if they're ever grafted. or what they'd be grafted onto

Thanks Lyn, I've emailed you

Anyone done any gardening today?

Hi Edd, no sheep, the nibbling is from ground level up to 4 or 5 inches, We have assorted mice and voles, rabbits occasionally, mutjac, rats and that's about the lot.

Loads more dead bramble and blackthorn suckers through the shredder.

Anyone know what eats the bark of the young blackthorn? My suspicion is voles. I've seen the damage before but usually in hard winters when other things are under snow. We haven't had any lying snow, just a few flakes one night

That's how it goes Forester. No woodpeckers on my count but they've been drumming all round ever since.

I wonder how many of these plants have been ripped out of their native habitat to die in UK gardens
