No, not at all. In the interests of diplomacy I will send you a PM!

To be honest, I'm torn... the thing looks so pretty, with "two different kinds of leaves" on one plant - what a novelty! I think I may just leave them, '(leave' them, Hah! geddit??  Oh, never mind...   ) and see what happens, over winter/come flowering time.... Should happen either next year or the year after..... Thank you so much for your interest and help, Flowerchild! Really kind of you!

cork screw willow tree looks very sad!

Jeyes fluid is also excellent. To be honest, I'd get rid of the lot. And get an arborist to do it for you. Willow won't burn (well, it will, but I really wouldn't advise it) and you don't want any part of the diseased wood sticking around for long.

Have it cut down and get them to grind the root stump and put a good strong stump and brushwood killer on it. Follow directions precisely. By the spring, you should be able to replant, easily....

Thank you for that, DFA.... (Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer fan, obviously. And that's showing OUR ages!!  )


That worked. Shame the quick-route way doesn't! But I will give that a go! 

Weedkiller on new lawn

....Or you may find the adjoining grass will grow into it.... if you see that happening, chances are the weedkiller has lost its effectiveness... sprinkle a little fresh topsoil on top and water.

Bump: Anyone else get this?


Trying to message another member, you click the 'message' button - and all you get is one big blank page with simply the website header above it?
