Is my conifer doomed

Posted: 30/05/2014 at 23:24

A lot of conifers have suffered over the winter.  The wet has encouraged disease to,spread, the saturated ground and constant rain I think was the cause

Nodislab I too would look on this as an opportunity to plant something different there.  If you want another conifer Taxus Stamdishii would look well there but berberis Darwinii, a variegated holly, Euonymous aureus, etc. too would fit ...?

Hi Michael and anyone else new.  More the merrier.

Bonkers?  Only because we seem to get on so well that we ....not me, of course.....are a tad silly at times.

Like the sound of that white garden obelixx.  I was promised some white foxgloves by my neighbour but he seems to have forgotten   I call him the foxglove king ...all of his are his own seedlings imcluding whites and a fantastic creamy variety. Will have to  strike a deal with him for white this autumn.  

HELLO FORKERS!

It's been very, very humid and hot today.  Rain threatened a few times but dry.  

Planted out my divided Imperata today imfilling gaps where it,is already growimg.  Nice soon to be red leaves behind the yellow hackonechloa.  For those of you not knowing this grass it has brilliant red leaves from mid summer onwards .....the Japanese blood grass.  Nice with hostas too

 

Pros and cons of book writing.

I started a book when I was 19 or so.  Still mean to continue with it.  I'm sure it will make a lot of money for me 

I think there is a book in most of us....?  I have written one for sentimental reasons though .......

Good luck Mike with it
