I have tried four times to grow an embothrium from a rooted cutting. The new leaves come fine but soon become yellow and drop off. The whole thing never gets that healthy vigour. Mostly I do them in multi purpose compost, and have tried the greenhouse, outside, and now in a cool hallway. What conditions should an embothrium have?
My Trachycarpus fortunei died in winter of 2010/11. This month I have discovered new leaves growing around the butt of the old truck. It looks like 4 individual new plants are growing from the old root system. Can I separate and transplant these new trachy? If so when n how is best method. Would not like to lose these precious new gifts.
I have 2 hazelnut trees in my garden, there are small shoots growing at the bottom of the trees, could i use these shoots to grow more hazelnut trees and if so what would i need to do.
I have a lovely large shrub of Daphne bholua "Jacqueline Postill" which has sent up suckers all around for the first time this year. I would like to pot up some and would like to know when I should do this? Also should I remove the rest? The mother plant is ringed with them, all along the root lines. During the recent hard winters a couple of branches died and I cut these out. I hope this does not herald the end of my daphne.
