Trying to push back boundary hedge & design ideas

Posted: 30/04/2014 at 00:32

Are the rhodies of value?  Are they good varieties?  They can be cut back really hard, but they will be very ugly for some years until they grow up again.

If you do not value the varieties very much, have them out completely.

IMO it is unwise to put a pond under trees.  Not only because of the falling leaves, but shade as well.

Help needed re leaning trees

'Exposed site' says it all.  If you look at trees on a coast you will see they have a distinct lean.

Maybe you need to start with a shelter belt as was there before. This will give a sheltered area for your trees.  Were the trees small and sturdy when you planted them ?

It may be that you have to put up with this every year in April/May. What kind is the tree?  I have seen roads in Bristol where the lime trees make a terrible mess of cars parked under them.

Isn't a mahogany a jungle tree?  Would it like to be somewhere hot and dry?  Wouldn't it prefer hot and shaded?

Hi Victoria, that's what I understood too.

Twigs from lidl.....what are they?

If they root so easily they are willows.  They are sold as room decorations, I think.  I don't imagine they are supposed to be put in water.

Ah, so it is not the 'Chelsea chop' but normal plant maintenance. We do the same with geraniums after flowering.

I thought the 'Chelsea Chop' was all about delaying flowering.  Not about tidying things up after flowering.  That is why I was querying the need to cut back primulas.

Help to ID this bug/pest?

Rooks love them.

They need good light, but not sunlight or their leaves get burnt.  A North-facing window is good.
