Natter night 26th February 2018.

Feeling a bit better now after a bout of man flu, but still a bit on the can't be bothered to do anything side.
Boxie  brought this Juniper to have the wire removed, which took quite a while.


Ken brought this Rhododendron as it seemed to have a problem. After a good check we decided to have a look at the roots and think we solved what was wrong.
When this tree was potted it was put into a mixture of peat and Kanuma, which is used in Japan for acid loving trees, but as this tree is European it did not like the Kanuma which was evident when it was removed from the pot. Where there was peat the roots were fine but where there was Kanuma there were no roots, so we cleaned it out and planted into Ezo grit to try to save it.

We will just have to keep a close eye on the tree and give it some TLC for a while.
