Fruit tree fans or espaliers

Does it have to be in this position? Most fruit trees want plenty of sunshine to fruit well, and won't be happy on your fence.

Geraniums not flowering

Don't go mad on the tomato food, either - over-feeding with anything will promote lush growth at the expense of flowers. You should have had flowers last year - I'd suggest that you don't feed before you have some flowers.

Is there any chance that they are too wet? Seedlings like to be moist, but not wet.

Where are you keeping them? Baby tomatoes need reasonably mild temperatures.

Greening up rapidly here too, and there's a funny yellow thing in the sky.

Any ideas? I don't recognize it...

Is there any chance that they are waterlogged?

Hello, Grayfleur, and to all the people I've not said hello to. Nice to see you all

Supposed to be dry today, so why have I just got wet going outside the door?!

Supposed to be fairly dry tomorrow, but back to the soggy stuff on Sunday.

I'm sure I'm developing webbed feet....

Why won't my wisteria flower

Position sounds fine and the plant healthy so, unless you bought it in flower, it's likely to be too young. Some wisterias are seed grown, and they can take up to seven years to flower.

The other point is have you pruned it correctly - look here for instructions:

You need to tell us a bit more. How old is it? Where is it growing? What direction does it face?

Goldilocks has covered most things, but you don't need to soak them for more than 12 hours. I find that they are hardy in the ground, and reasonably so in large planters, although I did lose some in 2010. Mind you, we did have a solid week of -10C and below.
