Hawthorn Hedge

Posted: 21/07/2014 at 13:05

We only planted the Hawthorn Hedge end of last year and its about 4ft high now  so its only a baby hedge at the moment  , We planted over 90  bare root Hawthorn whips  ( i think thats what you call them)  but they are coming on nicely but in some areas a bit sparse. I will cut back now to encourage new growth and in time the little birds will have a nice safe and secure place to nest and shelter.  Do i need to feed the Hawthorn hedge after i have cut back all the straggly bits. Thank you all for your help and advice....x

Hi,  I would appreciate all advice on my Hawthorn Hedge. I would like to prune the top of the hedge back  to encourage new bushier growth lower down the hedge.  I am unsure if its ok to prune it back now or do i have to leave it until next spring.  All advice and help is greatly appreciated.

Hi, I have a number of Roses growing in the front garden which need tidying up. On some of the Rose bushes there are a number of branches that have seven leaves and some with five leaves. I am unsure what to do,  do i cut the seven leaves off or leave them?.  All advice greatly appreciated.

Hi Edd,  Yes it looks exactly like that. Is Powdery Mildew treatable? Thank you.

Hi All, Last year i planted a Hawthorn Hedge which i have to say was growing quite well that is until last week when i noticed that there seems to be a White Fungus growing on the top leafs of the hedge .  I have now noticed that the white fungus seem to be affecting a number of the leaves on the hawthorn hedge. Firstly can anyone tell me what it could be  and is there anything i can do to save my hedge.

Hi, I would appreciate your help and advice.. I purchased two approx 5ft/6ft saplings, one Rowan and a Silver Birch which arrived saturday.  I was very surprised at how small the pots are  which they are planted in.  I am not ready to plant them in the garden just yet, but i would really appreciate some help and advice on planting them in larger pots.  Do i need to add anything to the compost to help them and also what to do with them to protect/ store them over winter. 

Raising the Level of the New Lawn

Hi, Once again i would appreciate some advice on laying a new lawn.  We have cleared our lawn of rubble now that the builders have gone  my poor lawn is now in a very poor state.  We now want to lay a new lawn but firstly we would like to increase the level of the lawn by 4"-6" using good top soil and turf.  My question is, do we put top soil straight on top of the old lawn and then lay new turf or do we need to do any prep work prior to putting top soil down.  

Replanting a young unknown tree

Posted: 01/06/2013 at 14:40

Hi, i would appreciate some advice on re positioning a young tree which now is about 10ft in height. ( i bought it  as a young whip when my grandson was born). I would like to re position it to a more suitable area in the garden.  My husband has dug it up for me and i have it stood in a large tub of water. The advice i would like is firstly,  i am not sure what it called, what do i do to prepare the soil (my husband has dug a hole ready for it to be re planted) and then once planted do i have to prune it back . here is a pic to identify this young tree.
