Merry Christmas and a good growing new year,
i saw this quote on a badge someone was wearing and thought it very apt--------
Plant a smile for Christmas.
So you can garden all year round.
I think Dove is right spray accordingly.
Ahh Spring my favourite time of year everything coming out fresh and new, and I do like those surprises when something comes up that you have forgot you planted.
also a busy time in the garden can't wait to get seed sowing ahh bliss.
A picture would be good
Hi Anna, sorry the picture hasn't come up.
Aeonioms do suffer with mealy bug, all plants loose leaves has a natural process but should not loose lots all together. How often are you watering it ?they like to be kept on the dry side and I keep mine in good light but not in full sun.

Green flowers have a place but not in this garden I find them boring, black leaves and flowers do it for me especially if you put a bold colour with them.
On the plum tree perhaps you need another plum tree to cross pollinate, because it does blossom this would suggest this. also does it blossom early, sometimes if a tree is a early pollinator and we get a late frost the frost will damage the blossom. No blossom no fruit.
As a rule of thumb you prune stone fruit in the summer and other top fruit (ie Apple/ pears) in the winter.
Ive just looked on the site, Rhs rose finder and nothing listed for Andy but a few for Henry. There is one which is the first listed called "O"Henry a peach coloured rose as far as I can ascertain, worth having a look at this site.
