Hi, I recently left the Flower shop and Garden centre business with the intention of setting up a Garden advice and supply business. I have taught horticulture through the V.E.C. for the past 4 years, which has renewed my interest in the outdoor life. I am very concerned with the type of planting that is been advised in relation to new houses, in particular to half-acre sites. Too many semi mature specimans are been planted into totally unsuitable positions. This results in many trees suffering from 'check' for 3 to 5 years. Hopefully I can encourage property owners to plant much younger trees in these situations.
In this vast subject one must always be prepared to learn somthing new. I look forward to increasing my knowledge from this site whilist also offering my own input.

regards, Bob.

good first post Bob , I hearthily agree with you re planting semi matures , they require a lot of attention and this summer saw a lot of losses . Younger trees usually catch up pretty fast .
Sorry I should have welcomed you first , looking forward to your input
Cool Bugs
