Blueberry advice please

Posted: 05/03/2015 at 22:32

The dorset blueberry company....Trehanes....is excellent.  They are the experts and the plants they supply are of good size.  They will advise too

You often get what you pay for....cheap will prob mean small, even very small, plants.

Bindweed Roots

Posted: 05/03/2015 at 22:29

Yep....I have used this method too.  Had bindweed  amongst raspberries and this was how I got rid of it there.  Didn't necessarily use plastic bag too much but tying it around canes and curling it on the ground and pinning it and then spraying it was very effective.

Japanese anenome

Foxy,  you need to eradicate jap  anemone and the best way is to treat it asap. By planting there too soon you are burying your head in the sand.  You cannot eradicate it  and grow a perennial like lavendar there at the same time

how about planting the affected areas with annuals this year? be alert to anemone growth and spray with strong glyphosate throughout the season.  A membrane is not the solution in my,opinion.

Scarifying: what is it?

Not toooooo big Desthemoaner.  Really good exercise esp for shoulders.  Scarifier though is better.

Red robin help needed!

Difficult to tell ...even with a second look.  However, I Would not attempt any "separation".  That dead stem won't really harm the rest.

A sharp pruning saw would be my way of cutting it back but secateurs and a clean cut would be ok.
