Thank you for your post. I was given a beautiful olive tree for my birthday in Oct. I've bee quite anxious about keeping it healthy and your message has been reassuring. Thanks

Hi all, been busy so no blogging. Good news my magnolia stellata  has burst into life I put new compost around with some grow more pruned out all the dead branches and held my breath! Gradually it started to leaf. It won't win any prizes but it's well on its way to becoming a tree. Thanks for your advice.

Good to know that there are frustrated gardeners out there like me done some delicate hoeing and put some defrosted compost around. Magical to remove some dead foliage and HEY there's some green.

Any tips for buying shredders mine is always getting blocked up so most of my time is taken up disentangling stuff , very annoying.

Hi all, my first contribution to the blog.  Thanks for the info on trees.  We have just had our sloping garden, landscaped to launch us into gardening as a hobby.  I am really thrilled to be able to walk around and see things spritting and developing.  I have been contemplating planting a couple of birch trees at the top of the garden to screen our summer house from the field (a potential building site for houses) to give us a little privacy.  Would the birches be fairly translucent through the branches as I wouldn't like to block out the light completely?  Any suggestions would be welcome as I am a very keen but a relatively novice gardener.  Also I planted a magnolia stellata in memory of my dear friend who passed away last year.  I am so upset to find that unlike my stellata at the front which is full of buds this precious shrub has none and some of the branches look dead.  Help!  Many thanks
