Blossom trees for large pots to create a screen

Posted: 01/06/2013 at 16:52

If the tree is fast-growing it may not stop at 12 - 15 ft and it will look most unbalanced in a pot at that height.

They are probably made of a rust-proof material so just put them in groups of, say six, and push their points in the soil or hang them on a nail in the shed.

Can't say I've ever found them a problem.

Advice on replanting young unknown tree

Posted: 01/06/2013 at 16:34

Your first step is to remove it from 'a large tub of water' or you will kill it!

I doubt it will need pruning until it is much bigger as it looks like a tree.  Prunus perhaps.  Do your best to find out what it is this year, then you can treat it correctly.

They will drive you mad when you empty the pots into the compost and you have to pick them out.

It'll put hairs on your chest!

I'm not the person to ask!  Sat down in the garden yesterday and read the instructions inside the wormery lid.  They have obviously survived despite my care, not because of it!

Waterlogged plant

Trouble is, if they get waterlogged for too long the roots are starved of oxygen and they die.

Pretty bad.

Due to my failure to put the wormery in the greenhouse during the winter, it stood outside through all that bad weather, and it is thriving.  I removed a lot of stuff yesterday to mix with compost for my tomatoes and had to pick out lots of worms.
