Seneca, take a look at the link below to the rhs. It gives guidance on training step over apples. They can be trained to the height you want.

help with melons

Patience Rosie let them ripen in the vine. You'll know when they are ripe when using your thumb you can just press in where the vine attaches to the melon. There will be a little give where they join.

Agapanthus love being pot bound Annie, if you want to divide them you can do so now if they've finished flowering.

I'd just collect what you want, put them on kitchen paper to dry out then sow.

See the link below re sowing.

Parkers

Posted: 28/08/2014 at 17:59

I have never used Parkers especially after the reviews of their quality and customer service from a majority of user of this forum. Try the Good Guys thread Lulu, there are numerous suppliers of plants on there which recommend good quality and service. It's a pity Parkers  and others don't read and take note of what is being said about them on this site, and I continue to wonder why the GW team fail to take note of the reviews of some of their 'Partner Offers' and the quality they provide, which IMHO is in some cases questionable.

Free fuchsias what to do now

Posted: 28/08/2014 at 16:31

Turn the pot upside down, or carefully tip them out to see if the root system fills the pot. If it does plant out, if not wait a few weeks then plant them out. It's better to form a good root system in the pot first and as nod says mulch them over winter, compost or farmyard manure will do, failing that ordinary garden soil.
