I have quite an old gooseberry plant, quite bushy, can I train it as a fan? Or do I need to buy a particular type?

Plant Identification please

I have native and Spanish bluebells and have been digging up the invaders for years. I am not winning. At all. I also have Lunaria like yours, which is lovely.

I have to tell someone....2 weeks ago I was clearing the last of the raspberries off my friend Dave's canes, and growing next to them he has some grape vines which he didn't think had been very successful. Peeking through the leaves were three very respectable bunches of black grapes! Delicious! This is on a VERY exposed hill in the slate mountains of North Wales!

Identification?

Rubble in the border

My brother in law, who obviously knows everything, has me second guessing myself. I have built a small retaining wall in my mother in law's garden intending to fill it with rocks, compost, the Camellia, Peonies etc. He has filled it with old cement, blocks and render from an old wall and claims that if I just top it off with compost the plants will love it. I'm not off my head am I? He's barking isn't he?

Can my Camellia survive old cement?
