Does anyone have an idea of what type of tree this is

Black bamboo

I'm thinking it may be not enjoying the opposite.  My soil is clay based and not very draining.  I'm wondering if that might be why.  I shall check with my local nursery tomorrow.  


Thank you

The leaves look so much healthier which makes mine look a little sickly.

My black bamboo while growing up to 8 foot high now, seems to lack leaves. This seems especially noticeable at its top. Does anyone know if it's not meant to be as dense? It's growing in a part of garden with sun till midday then mainly shade.

Bee/Bug Hotels

Posted: 10/06/2016 at 10:55

I have recently put up a bug hotel and pleased to say a few residents have already booked in. 


My question is after they have used these spaces will new residents be willing to move in to the same tubes next year. I ask this because last year i was given a tiny bug hotel which a few tubes were used and vacated but I notice it has not been touched this year.


If anyone has any other tips to encourage our solitary bees other than plants (i have lots of bee friendly ones planted) I'd be glad to hear from you.


Thank you

Can anyone advise what might be on my Hydrangea? Noticed a wet look to a lot of the leaves and on closer look there was something that looked a bit like a lot of dried up beetles. I'm not sure what to treat it with.

Making Raised Beds

I wonder if anyone is able to advise what type, size etc wood to buy to make a raised bed with. 

 

Where are my snowdrops?

Posted: 12/01/2014 at 20:08

The ones I had from last year are in a small terracotta pot by my back door. This is in full shade all year round. I have noticed the are about a centimetre out of the compost now. However if they were in a garden or grass area I think i would hardly be able to see them. Maybe/hopefully yours are just not through as yet. Keep your green fingers crossed.
