I moved here in January, and delighted to see a Rhus, about 9' tall growing in the back garden. Now, this tree is getting it's leaves now, and it's a lovely shape. The one thing that will make me tear it out is..... the damn roots!! They are growing almost on the surface, underneath, and for s few feet outwards, so that I couldn't plant anything there should I want to. Currently got stones there, but there's dozens of baby Rhus growing!!! Is there anything I can do about this please, can I sever these roots without the tree falling or dying? It's such a shame...
Over a period of years my Acer became overshadowed by a large Cedar Deodora with the result that branches on the side adjacent to the Cedar died off every year: presumably due to lack of air, light, water and by physical damage from the movement of the much larger branches of the cedar. There is some growth of new shoots along the side of existing branches but will my 'Brilliantissimum' ever re-generate from the trunk/head to produce new branches on the 'bare' side?
About 1 month ago we had a new fence put up but to do this my very much loved Choisya White Dazzler had to be dug up. Unfortunately a large amount of it root was left behind. It was replanted 1.5 meters further down the garden and thoroughly watered. I am rather upset as it looks like it is dying. Is there any way it may pull through? ( it was replanted with approx 1 3rd of its roots intact )
I cut an old non producing avocado tree down last year.Now there are 2 foot sprouts coming up from the base. Will this turn into a productive tree or should I cut these off?
I have a large mulberry tree in the south of france. I think I am too late to prune it, what do I do now as it has the established old wood but also the new wood of last year. Can I prune it still now or wait until march or April ? We still have the occasional ground frost.
I have three sarcoccuses around the garden, and they all look as if something has nibbled off their flowers, which ought to be scenting beautifully just now. - just little bare stumps at the end of the leaves. Any ideas as to what the problem can be please?
I have had a Viburnum as above for 3 years and it has never flowered. It was in a border for 2 years and last year I moved it to a pot where it flourished but still no flowers! Any ideas please,
When is the best time to plant fruit trees please? I'd like to start developing a small orchard in any time from now on.
Hi, I'm on a bit of a mission to try and identify some of the trees and shrubs in my garden. I have attached a photo of a tree that is about 3 metres From the house. I'd like to find out what it is so I can find out how best to keep it under control and whether its roots might be dangerous to the foundations. Thanks
I live in Sw France and am trying to identify, and eventually buy, this tree as it has all-round interest.
It is flowering now and the photos were taken last night but the light is not very good. The leaves are like lilac. Flowers dark pink. Situated in full sun. I had to use the full zoom on the flowers which seem to be dark pink with a dark purple centre. This tree/shrub is about 3m high.
