We have a 24 foot above ground pool that is partially set under ground and my husband bought some Indian Hawthorne shrubs to plant around outside of pool. Will the roots from these shrubs grow through the side of the pool?
The low-growing, dense nature of the Indian hawthorn makes it ideal for foundation plantings as a large-scale ground cover or as a low, informal hedge or divider. I would plant them at least 3 feet away from your pool or a foundation.
Our newly planted white indian hawthorn ( planted in fun sun around our pool , off the sea wall) got infested with bugs that began eating the leaves. I did treat the shrubs, but some plants had many bite marks. They look fine now ( no bugs for months now), but I don't really see alot of new growth. Any advice to get these bushes on the road to recovery ? Karen from FLorida

I just removed Wild Blackberry vines that have over taken my Hawthorne hedge. One of the plantings in the hedge is all but barren of foliage What can I do to help the Hawthorne recover without feeding the Blackberries?
Alright... This one is going to be a little complicated... If there is any growth at all (which it looks to have a little at least) Than you will want to feed the whole bed some nitrogen... That will kickstart things a little... Pour unused coffee and tea onto the bed. That will be your cheapest method for feeding. Eggshells can help some as well... If you would like to go granular, I would recommend Botanicares line called organicare. Both grow and bloom are really good. Now... The hard part. You will have to go in and pluck any blackberry that come up by hand. It really helps to dig up the root with a handshovel. You will not be able to avoid feeding those suckers... Now, I will suggest spraying straight vinegar ONLY ON THE BLACKBERRIES. AVOID CONTACT WITH THE SOIL Acetic acid is toxic to plants... so the idea is to kill what you don't want. You get it in the soil, You run the risk of killing the plants you want to keep.
I have three Indian Hawthorns that the builder planted them in the shade twenty years ago. They have never been pruned and the foliage is very thin. My wife wants to remove all three in February and replace them with shade loving bushes that will not grow into our walkway. We live in the Dallas, Texas area. I would prefer not to put them out as garbage. I would like to cut them way back and re-plant them as small container plants. If I try this idea, my assumption would be to make the cuts in mid-February when they are not growing, seal the cuts, dig a foot away from the trunk without cutting too many roots, dig to a depth where the tap root is cut and remove the stump and as much clinging dirt and plant the bush in a two gallon growing container. I assume if I have taken these steps the bush should leaf out in April or May. Please advise if my actions are appropriate and correct any that may be wrong.
It will survive transplanting, and the best time to do it is in fall... but spring will be fine as well. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/hawthorn/hawthorn-hedge-transplanting.htm
how long does an indian hawthorn shrub live
These trees will live for many decades with the proper care. Here is a link that will help you care for them: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/indian-hawthorn/growing-indian-hawthorn.htm
How deep does the Indian Hawthorne shrub rooting system go? I want to pull out 3 of these bushes that are too big for the area but don't want to get into a real difficult job. Have dug up and moved many azalea plants (shallow roots) but never an Indian Hawthorne. Is it a huge job? They are about 10 years old, 3 feet high, 4 feet across. Thanks for any advice. The specific question is: how deep is the rooting system of an Indian Hawthorne?
These shrubs are commonly planted close to a building or foundation, which is an indicator that their root system is shallow and non-invasive. This shrub will not be very difficult to remove.
