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

Posted: 19/06/2013 at 00:25

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.

What is the name of this Plant Growing in my Garden

Hi,  I have no idea what the name of this plant is growing in our garden and there are a number of shoots growing, Can someone identify it for me please.  We moved into our bungalow approx six months ago and our builder cleared our garden using a mini digger. Now we have patches of new shoots growing all over the garden, if possible i would like to save them so that when we start working in our garden i can re-plant them.

The apple tree is a cox's orange pippin. The roots are in a plastic bag. Do i need to put anything in the soil when i plant it in a pot , also do i need to place the apple tree in a sheltered spot in the garden. Thanks sotongeoff for your advice.
