I like those ideas, problem is if you can see the dog planter near the bottom in front of the first plant. it is covering some sort of manhole/drain thing so i cant expand further out as im not really sure whats under it

Standard Olive

here is my olive tree which i planted out in the ground last june. Im suprised by how much it has grown already. It did have some really tiny fruits on it but perhaps that could have been because it was grown somewhere hot. here is hoping for some fruits this year even though i dont actually like olives. From what i read on the internet there hardy down to about -10c if my memory serves me correct

 Hi. I have a shrub boarder running the length of my fence apart from right near the end. Last year I had a plant pot with some flowers in it. This year i'd like to do something a bit more permanent. The depth is probably about a foot/foot and half. The shed door opens towards the plants. all ideas welcome

typical, i have had only 3 germinate out of 24 cells until today. a fourth has arrived, but not in one of the empty ones. no it arrived in one already occupied litterally right next to it. im sure it is another one rather than the same seedling. what do i do, let them fight it out or can both be saved?
