Ash die back

General post from mrs finch

The listing for weeping ash says no general disease, is it not susceptible to ash die back?

I know there is a forum for disease but there does not seem to be much activity there

Can I split a libertia graniflora

Question from Kathy Meade

Hello, I have a rather old ( 9 years) libertia grandiflora which I love (being a kiwi). It was flowering profusely up until a year or so ago and this year again the flowers were rather sparse. It is also very 'woody' around the outside.

Can I dig it up and split it? would that rejuvenate it? and could I do that now? Or should I just invest in a new plant?

Any advice really welcome. Thanks so much in anticipation.

Daffodils to naturalise on a windy site

Question from Yvonne Horgan

New build house with no garden, which is fun, a clean slate. Post and rail fence between our lawn and a large field, facing NW, so exposed to cold North winter wind. I've planted climbing roses (on the basis they will be dormant during the worst of it), but would like to fill the space between them (still grassed) with spring bulbs, but I'm concerned the wind will simply knock them down as soon as they flower. I love the look of daffs nodding in the breeze like gossiping neighbours, but the wind really rips across the field. I don't want to put anything solid up because we like the view. Any recommendations for wind resistant narcissi?

Website help

Question from Liz

Can you delete and/or edit My Garden. I seem to have got into a mess and lost my plants. I need two garden headings Container plants and Front Garden. Can I do this. I am finding the website a little confusing.

Can mirrors give the same amount of reflected sunlight as real sunlight?

can anyone suggest a wind screening plant

Question from Eve Galbraith

Hi All,

Im new here and to gardening, well started at the beginning of lock down like so many other folk! Really enjoying it but can be overwhelming - so much to learn.

Im looking for plants to grow against the patio area fence to shield us from the wind. We live just outside Edinburgh very near the coast, Oh and no flowers during spring and summer - hay fever! Its a small garden with nowhere to put tender plants so ideally they need to be hardy.

Any ideas folks? Be so grateful for your help.

Can anyone suggest a low growing plant to deter pigeons?

Question from mrs finch

Hi, my bird feeder is in a prime spot where I can see it from the conservatory. Despite using no mess bird food there is always a pigeon or two waddling around underneath it trampling anything I attempt to grow. Can anyone suggest a low growing evergreen prickly plant that I can plant round it. Preferably, but not essentially something that smaller birds can hop through/under. Thankyou.
