I have this in my new garden in London, growing beside and into an old apple tree. I've just noticed a few yellow flowers (in mid September, about 2cm across) and can't figure out what it is. My husband's desperate to chop it all back hard, but I'd like to know what it is, and how/when best to do it first. Any ideas anyone? My best thought so far is some kind of crab apple.
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?
