Is it time to feed my Acer Shirasawanum Jordan to my woodburner?

Posted: 12/10/2014 at 13:05
Don't put it in the woodburner!! It looks like normal autumn colouring. Protect it from the wind. I would put the pot in the soil if you haven't worked out its final planting place to protect the roots from freezing. Acers prefer not to be in full sun.

I'd also stop that ivy creeping over the wall, and hope that Russian Vine doesn't get too frisky.

IKEA also sell suitable cabinets with drawers.

New gardener - moss help!

Do not compost the moss. It will survive to spread moss everywhere.

Ruined swede

Swedes are pretty cheap and they grow best in a field, so let the farmer grow them for you.

If the tree in the latter picture is old rather than young it may be on dwarfing rootstock so it should be permanently staked.

Man and chain-saw, saw or choppers - bad combination!

Sycamore with tar spot shedding leaves into my garden

This is typical of sycamores. Just one of the reasons I dislike them. I don't think they will harm your ornamental Acers. It's also OK to use the leaves to make leafmould.

runner beans

I would stick with a packet of new runner bean seeds. By all means experiment with keeping the roots for another year, but don't rely on them coming through the winter and producing a good crop.

Willow Hedge (I think)

Yes, looks like a common willow. We cross-posted. Use Glyphosate on the bindweed.

Willow can be cut back to the ground and it will spring up again. February is usually recommended, but sometimes there is no temptation to go out in the garden and hack at willows when it is miserable weather. If it is a common sort of willow it will be indestructible.

Any twigs you poke into the ground will form roots if you need any more willow plants.
