Battery Operated Hedge trimmers

Posted: 04/05/2015 at 08:20

I gave a Gtech cordless hedge trimmer.  It's a fun thing for shaping my bushes and conifers.  I have 2 about 100' and anither about 40'

it needs charging after about 30 minutes but charges quickly.  It is very lightweight and handy for quick jobs.  Rueberu, I think for your needs you may find the GTech a little short on power.  

I often cut the cables on electric trimmers, mowers etc., so cordless suits me fine

Just want to announce how much I love the Royals....Charlie's ears to the queen's corgis to the wonderment of their being.  

They cost us nothing, do everything for us and without the Royal Family where would we all be?

Funny isn't it Oldtyke.  To mention politics is frowned on because it's not gardening yet the name of this baby is of paramount importance.  Why?

Buddleia dying

Posted: 03/05/2015 at 19:56

I wonder if it's phytophthora .........

I would cut your plant hard back and clear away all dead and dying wood and see if it recovers.

Did you use a weedkiller there? 

Never experienced any diseases on buddleia so perhaps someone else can advise

We have had lots of dry even hot weather these past few weeks and I wonder if you watered your buddleia Glitzy....?  Even buddleias need watering to get established

I think you have under watered it.  Blueberries do not like it too dry and it has been hot and dry.  Direct sun is not ideal if compost is not moist 

agree with Watery about pollination though....another variety is important.
