What type plant would travel through the bare frame of the hedge with plenty of colour on a yearly growth.
Can I move a six foot laurel hedge. And if so when?
Would you plant Alder , willow or Birch to form the best hedge/screen in a wet/ boggy area at the back of my site approx 100 ft from the house?Would the trees go bare at the bottom ?I really want to form a hedge/screen there eventually. Have you any other ideas? The ground is very wet during winter and dries out during the summer.
When can I plant privet hegding?
I have some ivy on a wall of my house that has no insulation and I'm hoping it will raise the insulation level a bit and not cause dampness or damage the wall in any way. I hope keeping it trimmed and away from wood, gutters etc is enough to avoid probs?
We have heavy clay soil so we dug a trench about 3ft deep around the edge of the garden and replaced with topsoil. Now our soil is constantly waterlogged and it's impossible to dig. So far we have one photinia in the soil but I can see that could fall over easily as it can't grip the soil. Please help! Thankyou

I've recently discovered coral spot on my two maple trees . I made a pruning cut to eradicate this problem. My question is , will there be a good chance of this disease coming back ? i've checked the trees and they seem healthy to me .

I was wondering can you advise me on what hedge to plant. I live on the top of a very windy hill and need good shelter. I would prefer something evergreen but maybe with a flower or a bit of interest. I have a privet lining one side of the house, we had to take it out at the back because we built an extension. I have read that it can be poisonous to dogs and we have a puppy. I've had snowberry suggested?
Could you let me know if adding sulphate of iron to soil ( black moss type) would be of benefit when planting a hedge of pieris Mountain Fire .
I had a cherry tree cut down some years ago but the base and roots were left in ground. I now discover that there is honey fungus creeping around the base. It is beside both my compost heap and some evergreen shrubs. Should I be worried? What is the best solution.
