Q. Law About Neighbour Chopping Down Tall Garden Screen Overhanging Into Mine

This is a well established, mature privacy screen which is planted in my neighbour’s side, but overhangs into my garden and he has chopped it all down leaving an unsightly, hacked mess. I welcomed the privacy and thought that he could not touch the overhang in my garden! Am I right, or did he have the right to chop it all away from my side as well?

Laws and ordinances vary between municipalities, you would need to check what is on the books for your area.

What right does a neighbour have to chop down a privacy screen that has been established in his garden, but overhangs into my garden providing a very welcome privacy screen on my side? Can he chop down the overhang on my side?

A.

Sorry, but I've never heard of a ''mesou'' plant, nor can I find any information on any plant with that spelling. If you have a botanical or different common name, please submit. You could take a sample to Mecklenburg County Agricultural Extension Office or your local garden center for identification and recommendations.

Q. Neem Oil

Can I use neem oil to clean and/or polish plant leaves? If the answer is yes, what is the water to oil mixture?

I would not recommend wiping the leaves with oil. It can cause the stomata, which is how plants breathe, to get clogged and that can hurt the plant. Just wipe them down with distilled or purified water. They won't be as shiny, but they will be healthier.

Q. Transplanting

When transplanting and using root stimulator, how long do you have to wait to feed the plant? Is Osmacote the best way to fertilize?

You can go ahead and give it some now when watering (Osmocote is fine), but fertilize at half strength though, so that the fertilizer does not burn the roots while they are adjusting.

Q. Anti-Root Shock

Years ago I bought a bottle of anti-root shock. It was a dilutable product. I used it and the stuff I used it on flourished. The stuff I didn’t took 2 years to start catching up. Is there a product that I can buy to help in transplanting and prevent root-shock?
