I have a new bare garden and wish to grow a variety of climbers.What is the best wire and thickness to use for supporting the plants using vine eyes screwed directly into the fence, or would it be better to have the wire fixed to a on a hinged frame so that it can be opened back from the fence for maintainance. Thankyou DaveN.

My wisteria buds look they are damaged due all the rain we have been having. Will it be ok? Will it flower properly? Joe from Ickenham Middlesex.

Can you tell me when and how I prune my Acer Brilliantissimum? It is looking a little congested and last year suffered from scale insect.
I have two large deciduous ferns ion my garden and I am a little concerned as neither seem to be doing anything. i thought I might have started to see some new growth by now. Is it still to early for them? We live in the Midlands.
Should I pinch off the tips of my cosmos seedlings?

Hi Adam I have a number of delphiniums but last year lost one. I have bought some young plants but I am reluctant to put them in the ground as I have lost young plants previously - they flowered in the first year then never came back. Should I leave the young plants in pots for the first year and put them into the ground next year or can I do anything to ensure they're strong enough to survive and come back next year. I have had my established plants for 10 years or more

Hello Adam, I have a 10foot west facing wall that i would like to plant out in something that gives flowers, berries and greenery all year, something that bees, butterflies & birds are attracted to. I have small grandchildren who visit so something safe for them too! Any ideas?

I planted a victoria plum in Feb, it hasn't developed any leaves except a couple about 1 cm above the scion. Is this the plum or the rootstock deveoping leaves?

Hi Adam, I have what used to be a beautiful Caenothis tree. It was very well established and somewhat over grown. I asked the gardeners who maintain our communal area to trim it back and to my horror they did it so drastically that it looks like its been pollarded. This was in November last year and as yet there is no sign of anything growing back.
Is there any chance it will come back? I am missing the beautiful blue flowers and am so upset they might have killed it.

I have oleander plants of witch have never flowered ,though I tried all sorts of methods (pots as well as planted in the soil) they are cuttings from my mother's plants of wich flowered all the time,there are lots of oleanders in the neighborhood that flower beautifully.What may be the problem do you think?
Our 5 year old beech hedge looked ill/dying in the winter. However, it appears to be starting to put out leaves, now. Should we feed it and if so what with? Andrew (Bournemouth)

Adam, Please can you tell me the make of the watering system you are using on p79 of the May issue of the GW mag? I have spent several hours scouring the internet, but I can't find anything just like the one you are using.
Many Thanks, Granny Spider
