Growing succulents from seed (I think I've been diddled)

I think that swapping the family cow for a handful of beans is more reliable than buying seeds from many suppliers on Ebay.  

Honey suckle in pot

Honeysuckle is rarely happy in a pot ... it's a woodland plant that needs a long cool and damp root run ... few containers can meet these requirements.

For that position I'd go for one of the Boulevard clematis ... bred to be happy in pots and very floriferous

It's not that hard to control ... Just weed out seedlings which are pretty easy to identify.

Why is my apple tree not blooming

Posted: 19/06/2017 at 06:07

It looks to be six inches at the most from a bathroom or kitchen wall.  If growing at all is roots will be amongst the footings and it will be in a rain shadow, not to mention the wooden bench keeping any rain from its root area. 

As I said that is not a suitable place to plant a fruit tree.  Is it in the ground or in a container?

I think you're being a mite impatient ... To repot it and expect an almost immediate change is unreasonable. 

I don't want to seem rude but plants just don't work like that.
