Wisteria help please

You tie the leading stem in a straight line vertically a first Steve giving a main stem. When you reach your desired height, you cut the tip off the leading stem which will encourage side shoots to develop. You train the side shoots to the vertical wires, till you achieve the desired shape. It will take a few years to get to where you want it and the pruning regime is a twice yearly affair and quite simple.

In the Autumn Lynne. add plenty of farmyard manure, that will help with water retention for next year, but for this year, follow the previous advice.

Plant some Olearia's as a wind break, that should help and create  a different environment for your beds.

Better started in seed trays Jason, and a bit of something to refresh the soil is always useful, but not too much.

Newly planted trees need water and lots of it. A soak with 2 gallons twice a week especially in the warm weather we're having should be about right. It's obviously stressed, so mulch it as well. Hopefully it'll recover when it starts to establish.

I'd please

Don't recognise it as a weed Chrissy, has a look of Chrysanthemum to it, and it does ring bells, but can't remember for the life of me what it is.
