Problem Trees

Posted: 19/03/2016 at 17:00
I would counsel against putting any tree in a lawn. Makes mowing difficult. Put it to one side.

Whats best for screening a warehouse - upto 5-6m. Please see images.

I get the impression that the photos were taken from an upstairs window. At ground level the warehouse wall will not loom so large. The main view will be of your own fencing. Deal with that rather than the warehouse wall.

I agree with everybody else. Bring the eye into the garden rather than drawing it upwards and outwards.

fruit/veg in a trug - easiest?

Peas because they can eat them. Pick the sunniest plot you can. You don't say how old your son is, but children just love watering so get him a little watering can too.

You will need to water it. And then water it again. And then water it again. They are very shallow rooting.

Got it in one. My compost heap contains so many different things that no one thing predominates.

Come, come, since when can trees foretell the winter weather?? Well, they got it wrong this winter. Loads of berries and few winter migrants to eat them.

Hostafan, perhaps they have a pancake shop!

It is interesting to see the rubbish some journalists write too. I remember a classic when someone wondered why their apple tree had suddenly produced lots of apples. The answer was that it was a reaction to the current drought/fine weather. Poppycock! It was because the weather had been just right the year before and the year before that!

Please will someone tell me why people go on buying plants from this company. Doesn't anybody read the reviews on here and evaluate whether the risk is greater than the benefit? Yes, some people say they are reliable. Many, many more say they're not.
