Sowing a meadow

You might as well leave the roots, you'll never get them all out and with luck you'll have killed it. I wouldn't loosen up more than the surface.

I don't have a similar flowerbed. Mine are all tattier than that

Will it shade the gypsophila too much if you plant something through it?

Sowing a meadow

Sow it now. It's totally the best time. Many meadow plants need a chill to germinate and won't germinate if they don't get it. 

It's what happens in nature. Seeds drop at the end of summer, some germinate quickly, other germinate in spring. They've evolved to do that in our climate.

I'm sure some people manage them much better than me BR

I'm not a careful gardener. Sometimes I think I'm not a gardener at all. I'd be quite happy sowing seeds, pricking out, dividing up and generally messing about with plants and never touch the garden

It will be more contained in a pot. They tend to wander a bit in the ground.

I think that one is the hardiest

Cistus Populifolius Major

Hi BR

I've never met that one but I think cistus generally are a bit like lavender, they don't like being cut back into old wood. The cuttings to start again sounds like a good plan. I don't know how long they usually live but I've never had one for long. 5 years maybe. Other people may do better. I tend to let them get overgrown and straggly from competition so they need a hard trim and goodbye

Tree problems.

Bracket fungus doesn't so much kill trees as grow on wood that is already rotting. I wouldn't keep a tree with Bracket fungus unless it was in a place where it could do no harm when it crashed.
