hydrangea 'Annabelle DEAD????

Posted: 20/08/2015 at 15:28

It's good that the roots were dry as that explains the problem, which you've now fixed. Hope Annabelle is feeling perkiier very soon! I would expect those leaves to lift very quickly.

more grass advice please

Hakonechloa even. Predictive text.... What's hakloekena?

more grass advice please

They've been neglected I suspect or perhaps were unsuitable for soil or aspect.

I'm on clay too have to be careful on choice of grasses.  Look up carefully what best suits your soil, moisture and aspect and yours should do much better.  I have miscanthus in the sunny area and hakleokena in the damp part shade.

I like tall daisy like flowers with grasses eg rudbeckia, echinacea, helenium - depending on what the site is like.I'm also a big daylily fan - they do well on clay.

Yes, I was wondering what was growing around the balls and if it was intentional.

Oh dear! Is this the beginning of the end?

Sad news if it does have to go, Dove.  But look at you - all enthused about options . I'd agree with getting tree surgeon out for advice.  Then if a branch does fall and do some damage at least it's clear that you were doing what you could and being responsible - don't want grumpy neighbours!

I'll take the name of your tree surgeon when I see you if I may - am needing a recommendation.

A fast growing plant to give me privacy.

Problem bamboo

The problem is the lack of knowledge of many people buying plants.  I was the same.  I did some research before buying and realised I should be buying the clump ones, but given what I've learned since I would put one in the ground now at all.  The two I bought where put in the ground but didn't do too well with the aspect and I changed my mind about design of garden so I took them out and put them in pots.  In hindsight very glad I did! Luckily there was no spreading.  They'll be staying in pots!

Mine has the same leaves problem as its planted where they will be shade in the future (!) (at back of pergola but the climbers haven't grow up up.)  It's surviving fine though - just not as pretty as it could be.
