Exotic and beautiful tree but a real nuisance

Posted: 19/08/2015 at 12:32

Best advice is....never plant this in your garden.  Never 

pruning is very worst thing you can will sucker and sucker and sucker. Then it will be a nigh impossible task to control. pruning for sure makes this suckering far, far worse. 

beautiful tree?  No reason to grow it.

We need a dose of commonsense here 

it is about education not about banning.

if I read back on the forum over past few months so many plants are mentioned as being toxic or dangerous and banning them is proposed.  

Heaven forbid any over zealous politician gets hold of such nonsense.  

HELP!!!! Calla Lily Outgrowing Pot, Not Blooming and Droopy

Lisa, I would take it out of its pot and look at the rootball.  If it looks like 2 plants growing there I would divide them.  A sharp knife should do fhe trick.  Then pot up individually. I would do it now

when repotting use a john innes soil based compost.  Wouldn't add any extra feed.  Water well

Still wet but bright too with hopes of sunshine.

why is it when it's raining do I see "essential" garden jobs to do?  I have taxus Coppershine......2 of them, one a cutting seemingly unobtainable now.....that has been overlooked up until now but now stands out like a sore thump for a tidy up prune.
