If only I could get paid for doing what I love!

As a last, maybe, thought, although people seem to think gardeners are a cheap source of labour, if you're a proper good gardener, then it's a skilled occupation. The breadth of knowledge you need to run and maintain gardens including greenhouses is substantial and in depth. It shouldn't be a poorly paid job. People I work for know that and I get paid accordingly.

Lilac trees and veg!

Posted: 31/03/2016 at 17:34

You'll have to consider light morena. Although quite a few veg don't mind shade, as does some fruit, full light is preferred. I'd add as much well composted material as you can. It should have been done in the Autumn really. You can't grow root veg in freshly manured ground but everything else is okay. A top dressing of fish blood and bone will help as well. Lilac suckers can be a problem but they can be removed reasonably easily. Otherwise best of luck.

May do Lyn depends if it's been sitting in wet conditions and for how long. I have a few little ones if it dies.

You've answered your own question B3 light exclusion. Yes you can prune back now, light and temps are rising.

Is my yucca dying?

Yucca can look a bit depressed after winter, especially a wet one. They like drainage. I'd consider lifting it and adding grit to the planting hole and replant it. They're tough old things so !ay well recover.

Daunting large garden and where to start

I'd wait Carl get a wind break in there before planting fruit trees. It'll give you a few years to get together some ideas.
