I have a south-facing covered balcony, open at the sides above waist height, the bottom half is glass. First, what pot plants would be suitable (maybe evergreen?) and second, what is the best way to treat the wooden floor of the balcony? Many thanks

Gardening Book

When I first started gardening, a good general guide was the Reader's Digest "Gardening Year" book. I want something similar for my daughter who has some knowledge of gardening but is fairly new to gardening. Anyone got any good ideas on a gardening book I could buy for her? It needs to include things like when to plant, when to prune, general overview of the gardening year, general lawn maintenance etc

I want to grow something different in my greenhouse and I thought maybe a small fruit tree. Would a peach or apricot tree be a good idea? If so, which variety? And where is the best place to buy one from?

Would a 35 litre pot be big enough for an Avalon Pride peach tree in a greenhouse?

weed?

OK - thanks for that. I suppose the best way to get rid of it is to keep digging it out?

Is there a variety of self-fertile peach I could grow in an unheated greenhouse in a container?

What is a good variety of melon to grow in a greenhouse?

Tomato

Can anyone tell me what sort of tomato to grow? I want something that is easy to grow, very flavoursome and disease-resistant. I want to grow both ordinary size and baby tomatoes. I have a greenhouse. I have grown many varieties in the past but none of them have much flavour.
