Advise on a present just received, a Prunus Incisa

Paul, good in a sort of rockery, or pot or near smaller plants.  As dove said, you can't really call it a tree.  I don't grow this but I have planted one.  Beautiful in flower but best not in the showiest spot during summer

you could plunge it, pot and all, in the ground for now until you decide exactly where you want it

Chris,,you are over thinking,,over worrying about a normal lawn issue. ,

I just bought the biggest.....and I mean the BIGGEST teddy bear ever for my soon to be great nephew.  Every female from tot to er, older....went weak at the knees with an 'aaaaaaah" so I guess I chose well.  Walking down the town with it was surprisingly unembarrassing prob due to a couple of strongbows earlier imbibed .  (Not driving folks ). Cant buy any more plants for a while though 

rain has gone too. ,

true berghill, but I have learned to experiment a little with some success with other types.  Obviously not to same "drastic" degree as with H O.

Well it is wet here....not nice.  Afternoon supposed to be dry.  

The old adage "wet on the shortest day heatwave on New Year's Day" though folks

But PP, it's just a bunch of people covered in brown polish, make up and sequins....the women too....all bobbing up and down.  We could have had footie instead.  You know it makes sense

Could just be the constant wet....and Patricia.

nothing you can do but just watch if that browning continues further down the foliage
