Wow Lyn thats amazing!!

We moved in early May and seem to spend lots of time walking round garden centres and coming home empty handed!

Afraid of making expensive mistakes!

Well done,

I didn't think that GM crops were approved for sale in the UK or has that changed now?

Leylandii Cypressus?

Hi Guys,

I've recently planted a small row (5 in total) of golden leylandii, to screen an area in my garden, I dug good holes and as the ground seemed quite wet once planted Ive only watered them sporadically as I know they are tough plants, however they are turning brown around the botton speading from the central trunk out wards and progessing upwards. Is this because Ive not watered them enough?

I know lots of you would just say good let them die!!!

Thanks for any suggestions!

Cherry advice please?

Cherry advice please?

Posted: 03/06/2013 at 10:25

 Well, we moved into our new home and in the front garden there is a fab tree! Its a cherry which must be grafted as its half white and half pink when its in blossom!!

However its a bit enthusiastic to say the least and although I don't know whether is a sweet or acid cherry I do know it needs a hair cut!

Can anyone advise me please?

I've read to do it in the summer and its forming cherries now!!

Thanks Carol

Opinions please!

I have recently moved to a house with a larger garden yey!! and have a lovely space set aside for a new greenhouse!

I had a 6x8 aluminium and glass traditional one which I left at my old house and am looking to buy a 10 x 8 any advice on good places or times of year to buy a bargain as I've missed the boat this year for planting in my opinion. Also are there any benefits or down sides to buying a polycarbonate rather than a glass one??
