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.

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.

Quick Growing Hedge/Conifers?

I would not respect the opinion of anybody that recommended Russian Vine.  Ditto Leylanndii.  Apart from the most obvious disadvantages, they are depressing, especially if they are near the house.
