I grew the pictured Angels Trumphet from seed last year, and with the winter, it did die....I have not over watered it during winter.Im just wondering, is it dead or will it come back in Spring and if so, what I should do?
As we now hopefully see the end of the bad weather, I was out in my garden this week to see that my geraniums/fushias have been particulary hit with the bad weather. Appearing totally lifeless/dead. My question is will they come back or will I need to start from scratch? At 27 and a gardener for over 15 years, I/they have not experienced such cold before.
Now drooping leaves "like a broken umbrella" . Only about 5 years old. What can I do to help it along ?
I planted white hydrangea, after 2 weeks the leaves turned white and the stalks just collapsed..what could be the cause?
Can Pomegranate and Persimmon grow outdoor at Ireland? If yes, which breed is better?
I have a Chusan palm tree for ten years it's about 10ft high. Every year I cover it with a fleece bag but it's so high it will be very hard to do. is it hardy.
I have a fuchsia collection in raised beds in my front garden. This area will become a builders site in a few months when we have an extension built. My plan is to lift the fuchsias ( about 50 of them, both H3 and H2) into pots which my kind neighbours have agreed to store. Will bubble-wrapping the well mulched pots and fleecing the branches cut to about 30-40cm be enough protection, or what else would you suggest?
Some years ago, I bought back two cones from Israel (sentimental reasons) and recently put a couple of the seeds into some compost. Surprisingly they have taken root and I now have four little bright yellow green spikey shoots almost like the spikes of an upturned umbrella. Do you think they will survive here and can you give me any tips on how to help them survive in our climate.
I purchased this Boronia and it had beautiful pink flowers. It died a sudden death and lookes so dry even thought I have watered it every day. Initally I had it in a pot then put it in the front garden which get good sun in the afternoon and early evening. Is there any way to restore this lovely plant. Help. Kind regards Bernie
have noticed that some ash trees in my area have a blackish hue to them. When you look closely at branches it looks like hundreds of tiny, flat, dark coloured leave like structures are present. have been told that trees have gone to seed too early. Is this what has happened and what has caused it.
In relation to one of your previous questions about a frost damaged cornus controversa, I also have one (planted in January) that got frost causing all the buds to go black. I removed some of these tips but even at this late stage there is nearly no leaves on it. Apart from a few black spots the stems seem healthy. Is there anything I can do to improve it's chances? Also is there any point trying to grow paulownia this far north for flower display?
Lots of my shrubs and small trees have been badly burned by frost and I'm not sure what to do with them. Some of them are definitely having some die-back, so for them I just cut back to sound material. But what to do with Hydrangeas with burned leaves, and in particular a two year old Cornus Controversa which has over 50% of the leaves burned.
Viburnums were killed by frost last winter. Problems if I leave roots in the ground? If so , remedy?I would like to plant Viburn again or Red Robin. Also I want to grow apple trees near where I cut down a Hibiscus the roots of which are in ground. Forsee any problems?
