What type of tree or overgrown shrub is this please?

Comment from Janet Surman

In forum: Identify a plant

I have 10 of these trees all around my garden. I moved in a year ago and searched everywhere to find out what they are without much luck. They are about 30 years old have evergreen leaves which are slightly shiney and lighter green underneath. No flowers just leaves making a huge canopy over my flower beds. Any ideas?

sempervivum rot

Question from robert atkin

In forum: Pests, diseases and weeds

Some of my Sempervivum varieties are displaying signs of rot (dead brown leaves on the underside). However, when I lifted two of them out of the container to check for damp roots I found that they were quite dry. So i'm wondering what else could be causing the rot. Has anyone any ideas?

Katsura Tree? - i hope not!

Question from Steve

In forum: Identify a plant

Moved to new home, found this planted tight up against a fence under a mature corkscrew willow. Its about 15ft and interfering with the willows branches, south aspect raised border, clay based ph5.5. If it is a Katsura i guess i'll have to remove it somehow, no space for it there and no chance of getting it out to transplant....i'd have to dig up the neighbours garden!
