Well done ERICS MUM.  clearly you deserve that hosta and dahlia unchewed . Got through a difficult time 

 for me the best blue hosta is Halcyon but check out First Frost.  It is a and cream and real neat.  Almost a favourite...almost.  Liberty is exceptional I think

Sumac Tree Removal

glyphosate will be as effective as anything else....suckers are mainly soft and green.  However this is a real problem Dave.  Normally regular cutting off, mowing for example, would weaken most growths but sumacb reaponds witb even greater vigour.  

Sbk should work now on the main trees though.  

I would spray every shoot seen and be persistent.....starting asap.

A word of caution.....any replacement,,esp of the same type,,is likely to struggle to grow.  

Check other parts of the hedge are not dying.

Someone has been naughty Nigel 

he or she has been on a  slug misson and tossed the lot into your garden. if it happened here I would quickly find out who did it and...........  prob collected in a salt solution hence why some were dying

you must have an idea Nigel.

Well done lisa.  

it is a very good club to be in...trouble is everything is so tempting and I already have loads of plants not yet planted.  They will be; they are growing on in pots 

What is your weather like?

Yes GD, the sun and heat soon arrived.  Got a pretty strong wind though.  We have very similar weather, don't we?
