Hi David, yes we are recording and i can email out the link to participants.
Does that include steel reinforced driveways? Are they less likely to get roots coming up?
Thank you Bec, thats great news.
I plant in potting mix because my dirt is building rubble

feel free to pop any questions in here
How long does it take for a Banksia marginata to flower?
Any tips for the management of very large gum tree, 50 yo, a metre from building? Arborist haskept it from dropping branches for past 10 years & its the largest tree on the street. How do I make sure it can stay for ever?
(plumbing has already been replaced due to it getting into old pottery pipes so that's no longer a huge concern and we get pipes checked every 6 months just in case)
What should you do with your tree if you have made the mistake or creating a sump in heavy clay? Particularly if the type of tree does not like root disturbance, In my case an avocado, transferred from a large pot into ground. thanks.
Can you recommend a tree for west side shading? I was thinking about 6 m
Tips on helping old gum trees, should i remove all the grass below and mulch?
If you’re transplanting a plant/tree from a pot to the ground and it’s root bound, what is the best thing to do?
Is mulga (aneura) native to Victoria?
Can you recommend a tree for fence on north side of house - mainly for privacy as there is a two storey house close to boundary on the other side of the fence
Trivial question: if you had to pick a native tree/plant to train as a bonsai, what would you pick? (Tiny tree instead of a small tree!)
Does gum tree shed branches easily? Is it water sprout?
Thank you. Very informative.
Why do certain trees have longer natural lifespans than others? You mentioned Hakeas don’t live as long as Callistamons and Eucalypts
Fantastic, enthusiastic information! Thank you so much! Loved it!!
Would Lilly billy be a good choice along the east boundary fence - I am looking for something relatively fast growing to act as a screen (as there is an apartment block to be built on the other side!)
Lilly pilly - autocorrect :-)
