how to tidy up this 'tree'?

Posted: 15/10/2013 at 20:05

thank you for all kind and useful information. yes i have started to cut some sml branches down will do more in the weekend with a proper saw. The mess is much terrible as i thought when the outer layer is gone, the lower branch is almost being 'gravity' and grow towards the field which putting lots of weight on the stone barrier. so need it down asap too.

Just one more thing to ask for suggestion-- is there a quick way to stay privacy screen out from main road's street light /public view but still get some  sunshine at day time to my flower plot? --as you can see from the pic below jz in front of the tree, also there are 2 big nice tree nx door blocked the sunshine for half of the day at this time of the year

Hi

not sure what's the name of the green tree but i'm sure experiance gardeners here could jz tell by a glance.

It's going quite wild now as we dont know how to trim it or cut it down to properly shape it so it actually destroying our neighbour's fence.

Please help and give us some suggestion or advise. thank you

 

p/s:I wont wanna cut  it too much as i know it has been housing some birds deep in the center.

Hi,

We had am apple tree from our rented house owner, not sure about the name of the apple its green quite rough screen definately not sweet dessert apple or bramley.

It was doing alright at the first year we move in but getting worse after i clear around the base which is weeded. i have attached a few photos here please advise on tidying prunning or maybe cure it if possible so it comes back to green and healthy again.

Dear all,

I've planned to get a new greenshouse, which is the PE cover with DIY staging that sold in Wilko, also a 3ftx3ft coldframe to overwinter my newly potted plants. just a question before I can set both up--should it be gravel first then poly cover as the base to cut off weeds, or the other way round? I'm just wonder if i put poly cloth as base will the enclosed enviroment gets too condensed with trap water, also there might be slugs & snails's best hibernate places??

Thank you for all advise

 Dear all,

This's my 3years old grape vine, cant remember the name now brought it from The Range 3yrs ago. It seems doing very well this year producing loads of fruit, still small thou.

Just wondering if this's gonna grow to edible size like those in supermarket?

As you can see, it also have few rotten one between every each one of the prunnet, not sure what's it all along these years, so i never harvested anything yet. Please can anyone help & teach me a little bit more from this process now on?

Thank you very much!!!
