I am thinking of planting a red robin after my neighbour cut there mature trees down leaving us with no privacy. It is west facing garden, but would be in full sun, slightly sheltered by other gardens & 1.8m wall. The space for planting would be close to wall and a patio area - will roots disturb wall/patio? How far away should It be planted from wall/patio? I need about 4-6m height to give privacy needed. Any advice gratefully received.
Hi, I have two standard myrtles by my front door and their leaves are starting to yellow quite badly. Does this mean they are stressed in some way? Any help appreciated. Thanks
Hi I have an acer bloodgood on a West facing fence really suffering from the sun. I have a small garden and wonder if there is a tree with an upward habit and a crown that would give shade. It would need to be a tree that doesn't spread, just tallish with canopy. Would there be a tree like this? Or do I have to move the acer?
Hi I have search for this plant/tree/shrub on the site and can't find any care instructions, can anybody help please;-
Grevillea juniperina Robin Gordon Standard
Thanks in advance ;)
Hi. We have a wisteria alba which is about 18 years old and which is planted on the side patio to our house over a loggia between the house and garage. I'm ashamed to say that we haven't managed the wisteria at all since we planted it and now it's a monster. I've had to take emergency remedial action to stop it invading the garage roof and the house gutters but I need a more effective approach to pruning than just hacking back outliers. There's an awful lot of dead wood. In fact all the green growth happens above the dead wood canopy so you can hardly see the blossoms from below. Can anyone suggest how I can tame this beast without killing it off?
I recently bought a lemon tree which seems to be doing quite well. However the fruit is still quite small and I wonder if you could give me advice on:
Caring for the tree
Repotting from its original pot
Feeding the tree.
Thank you for your time
Hi. Can anyone confirm what type of Wisteria we have adopted when we purchased our house 2 years ago please? There are a few scattered around the area but all have tighter, shorter blooms than ours. Any help would be appreciated.
I have a Japanese Acer - not sure of which type it is but it has dark purple leaves - which has done well for 5 years. This year, only a couple of its branches have developed leaves I think the other branches are dead as they look brown when the bark is scraped off. If I remove the dead branches, will it grow replacements? Is this the correct thing to do or should I resign myself to the fact that I am going to lose it? Thanks
a few years ago i planted 3 sloe bushes.1 died in the first year and the others never produced any berries.this ear they some berries have set but the leaves are sparse,very small and deformed however shoots almost from the base have large healthy leaves.should i cut my losses and replace them with a different species of shrub,maybe a golden currant?
I have fallen in love with the black tulip Magnolia, but as someone who is very new to gardening, I know next to nothing about these trees. I have heard that I need to be careful with regards to roots with Magnolia trees.
Could anyone tell me how far away from the house these tree would need to be planted? If it is suitable for a garden at all?
