Can you please tell me when the is the best time to take hydrangea cuttings?
My magnolia susan has just produced beautiful blooms again in the last week. Is this unusual? It is about 6 years old and this is the first time this has happened.
why do the little walnuts on my tree disappear before maturing.

My daughter has what we thought were shrub bushes in front of her house in a small town and we looked at them today and they have green apples on them. Do you know what they are?
I am currently working on establishing the main structure of my garden. One large bed is north-facing and I would be very grateful if you could advice me on suitable plants, mainly structural evergreen plants, around 3ft in height (Max)to form my foundation. I am very keen on perennials but want to start with some structure before I plant any perennials.
I have spent a fortune on beautiful plants only to find the heavy salt laiden atlantic winds burn before and after them. I so long to have colour and form in my garden but other than hebe and escallonia, is there anything alse that i could grow in such an exposed site as Belmullet , Co.Mayo?
i have a silver birch which gets sunlight under it for most of the day. There is gravel on the ground underneath. Could you recommond plants or shrubs (preferably with colour) to grow under it. Thanks
I would love to grow Virgina Creeper or Boston Ivy on my Garage wall, but I am reading on some web sites that they may damage the wall itself, seems this is more the case for Boston Ivy....Other sites then seem to contradict this.Have u experienced this..? thanks

Hi Gerry, I would like to grow some climbers (Boston Ivy or Virgina Creeper with Varigated Ivy ) to climb up a trelis and cover the front of a Garage wall.I will need to grow these in a timber rectangular box I intend to make.... question is... how deep would the box need to be for these climbers, I am thinking 18" deep by about 12" wide....would that be big enough to support these climbers ?... thanks !!
