If I cut my large deciduous fushia Maiden's Blush, back hard now will I kill it?
I have a Buddleia (see photos) that has gone on a mental growth spurt. This is its second year i have had it and last year it was about 0.7m high and i pruned it back quite hard. Its now shoot up and out but the flowers on it dont seem to have any colour. it didnt flower last year so i dont know if this is how it should be. All the other buddleia in the local area have colour - white purple red and two others in my garden have colour. is this just an unusual variant or is there something amiss.
I am looking for a peach or nectarine tree/shurb that I can grow against a very sunny south facing wall in a very large container. Can anyone recommend a variety and nursery?
I garden for a friend, and she has a beautiful 'Wiri Mist' Hebe. It is over 4' across and approx. 1 1/2' tall, however, today I have noticed it seems to be dying from the base up . Any ideasThank You.
We planted oval leaf privet earlier this year and I want to make sure it turns into a nice, dense, bushy hedge which won't get too leggy.
Should I prune it now it's about two feet tall?
What would be the best method to prune it?thanks
We have a big hollybush growing just 5cm from our house, how worried do I need to be about it damaging foundations?
Internet research suggests that this is not ideal, but there's a house nearby which has a well groomed hollybush as high as it is right up against it's wall also.
Any advice would be helpful, do we just need to keep it below a certain height, or would it be best to remove it? There's a well established climbing rose growing about 15cm from it and I'd hate to damage that with any tinkering.
Could you advise when to cut back or prune large shrubs and a cherry tree.
Wish to gain space taken up by overgrown shrubs but do not wish to encourage strong growth. Can I cut back in July or do Inwait until Autunm or Winter? Many thanks
I am unsure if I have a sucker or not. The leaves appear to be identical but the shoots are green rather than woody.
Can anyone confirm?
I've had this tree fern for about 4 years and last year I noticed that the fronds seemed stunted. I thought it might be different a season on but sadly it looks as though the same is happening again! I have two of these and wrap them both up over winter in a fleece. The other one is fine but I wondered if there is anything I can do to help it?
I have a Philadelphius starbright I planted about 4-5 years ago. It has never flowered since I planted it. My garden faces southwest, the shrub is sheltered until midday and then is in full sun for the rest of the day. I have another variety that is in the same area, but gets sun earlier in the day. It flowers profusely. Does starbright flower on new or old wood?
