Any ideas?

Are there any ferns which are evergreen, hardy and grow to 3-4 feet? I haven't got any ferns.

Any ideas?

I want a shrubby type evergreen hardy plant for a very large pot on a north-facing wall - it gets very little sun. Ideally growing to 4-5 foot. Any ideas?

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

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?

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

I have this invasive plant all over my lawn and borders - can anyone tell me what it is please?

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