Conifer problem

Posted: 19/12/2013 at 18:27

Hello spainman

Unlikely that this thinning is because of being topped 6 years ago.  What variety of conifer  do you have?  sounds like Leylandii ...it's growth rate?  Or a pine?  Conifers do get brown inside....their greenery is usually quite thin.  Perhaps it is just growing treelike and doing whats easiest for it.  Has it ever been pruned apart from that topping?  My conifers are all trimmed annually to retain density.

Bringing back the Annual!

Hiya Ryan,  hmmmm, interesting question.  Not really an annual guy but can I say tomato?  I know you meant flower really 

Least favourite annual must be marigold.

Andy Murray deserved to win.  Just go back a few months and remember the excitement when he won Wimbledon.  And why we were so pleased about it.  It doesn't matter if he is a little boring....it's about sporting achievement.  If he didn't win this time he never would

christmas parcel

Just received a parcel of plants via FED EX.  Collected amd delivered in one day and tracked easily.  I knew just when it would arrive. 

The post office simply is not competitive now.

Sleet and heavy rain showers....well, some dry spells during the rain!.....cold.  

Gof some grasses coming today.......fun tracking where parcel is.   Wont plant them out until march cos I'm not sure exactly where they will go. Will add couple more new miscanthus varieties too later.  Grassss are so underrated methinks

Hiya gardenjennie

Well done.  Very impressive.  Welcome back

. Do I really give people "hell"?  I will have to behave much better here I think I probably say too much so sorry folks.

A very good simgle hellebore is lovely.....I have a beautiful yellow for example.  But the doubles too are excellent for me.  A mixture of the two is lovely

I suggest people buy them in flower from GC or online from Ashwoods or woottens where the colour is guaranteed

Ha ha.  Well, Red, I'm sure ??ou will get what you want 

(I've always wanted to "breed" my own hellebore but will try it next spring)
