Protecting new trees

I'd suggest training the dog to pee against a provided pole in a specific area away from plants?

Thank you all. Like herding cats, everyone has different and valid opinions and all valuable!

I want to treat myself to a new hoe to actually try to keep the weeds away. Can I have some opinions on type of hoe and which brands people favour?

Sadly the building turned out to be legal. Hoping his laurels grow fast to cover it. I'm not a big fan of laurel hedging but at least it isn't leylandii...

I installed mine on a three inch level trench of sharp sand, no issues at all. Three 3 by 7 (ish) foot beds were installed in a day with the trenches dug the day before.

I love them, ours have recently returned and they hang out in the next door neighbour's pyrocatha!

Straightening a Prunus?

I'd thought of that but it is already 2.5m tall. I have been trying to work out how to straighten up such a big one!

I recently purchased a discount prunus amanogawa and it is a little bent over at the top.

Do I give it a year or two to see if those bits straighten up as it grows or do I cut my losses and prune them off in the summer next year?
