Could do. I have something similar I used when I was planting roses last year. Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestions.

The old cherry tree, which flowered beautifully every year, had split it two places and my garage and my neighbours garage were both in the firing line so felling the tree was a necessity. Two weeks after the tree came down we had a fierce storm which did a fair amount of damage so it was good timing.

The hole will be about 1.1m x90cms and who knows how deep and I wonder if in addition to compost etc. I could also use some of the chippings in the bottom.

I am having a large cherry tree stump ground out next weekend and I am wondering what will be the best material to use as infill. The stump is in a border and I would like to plant another smaller tree in the same place.

No sign of a join anywhere. The "trunk" part is about 35cms in height before the branching starts.

My Euonymus has been grown as a "standard" rather than a shrub so it has a single trunk so I feel this could cause problems with pruning to recreate a good shape.

I've had a careful look  this morning and the break goes right down to the point where the branches divide at the top of the trunk. I have nothing on the left side, two good strong branches on the right and the broken one in the middle..

If I take out the broken branch is it likely I will get regrowth from this point.

Thank you. That sounds really hopeful it would be sad the lose the shrub

My lovely shrub has been damaged by strong winds and one half of the plant has been broken off completely and another branch almost severed. Is there any way I can try to repair the break. The shrub is about 120cms in height and this is its second year in the ground.

It is an incredible blue if grown in the right conditions and as you have suggested I have been looking at alternative areas and I will do further tests in the meantime.

Thanks again
