A red robin that has been in the same spot for 9 yrs has been uprooted in a storm,It broke where it went into the soil,and was a very healthy tree.What are the chances of it regrowing in spring?
On 5th Nov I planted 25 bare-root laurels where lawn meets the path in front of the house. (replacing frost damaged escallonia). Approx 20 inches apart. I used a mixture of compost and the soil which is poor enough. Mixed in a handful of ckicken manure per plant. The leaves are going yellow on about 33% of them already. The soil has gravel under it so I doubt its waterlogged. I put each plant well into the ground, maybe too much, I dont know. I made a little mound to keep off water logging and everything looks alright, except about 7/8 plants look like there wont make it. Demoralising as I am an amatuer. Considering building a wall if the hedge doesn't come on.

I had 4 mature japanese maple (don't know the variety) planted about 2 months ago. In the past couple of weeks one of them, in particular, has developed curled listless leaves gone brown around the edge and some of the leaves have a dusting of what looks like white mould. The bark and branches look ok. I can take a photo if it would help but don't have one to hand at moment.

I have a Contorted Hazel and a Portugese Laurel which I planted too close together, I would like to move one of them, preferably the Contorted Hazel, to give them more space as they are growing into each other at this stage. They were planted about 7 years ago and both are about 6feet high. The Hazel is about 5feet wide and the Portugese Laurel is about 3feet wide. I would like to know if they are both suitable for moving and when is the best time to do this, also should I take any other precautions with them to prevent too much disturbance?

I intend to plant a new shrub border in an area that has not been previously cultivated. I have sprayed the grass etc with weed killer and that is now brown. Can I avoid digging by covering the area with a thick layer of farmyard manure and leaving over the winter before planting in spring? Or can you suggest any other method that does not involve digging?
