Not seen any anywhere Andrew.  Have you thought of trying the bamboo screening, or the willow or hazel hurdles they come in various heights including approx 1m. 

Good luck

They're on their way Caroline - if you've got healthy leaves you'll get some flowers.  Depending on the variety they flower from July - Sept/Oct.  You've done it right, you just have to be patient

Agree with pansyface - if you have fruit then the honeysuckle must've flowered and the bees have visited and pollinated them 

Inherited a garden but have no idea what to do??

Hi Ruth and welcome 

Can you post some pics of the garden and the plants involved please?  To upload pics on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your posts.  Sadly it doesn't work for phones - yet 

Just cutting everything right back probably wouldn't causing any lasting damage, but it may mean that you lose some flowers this year and might even cause some difficulty with identification of plants.  

If you can hold fire just a bit and let us have a look ...............

Clari If you don't decorate until next year, the date it'll need re-doing is a year further away!  

That's what my builder said in March  when he booked us in for next January 

tiny carrots

It might be that they've had too much nitrogen which encourages foliage at the expense of root growth.  Also, they need watering and warmth to get the roots to develop.

They will also stay small if they are too close together.  If you've not thinned them you could thin them to about 4" or 5" apart - you can cook the little ones - the others will grow bigger. 

Tomato leaves curling?

Mine are in big pots of multipurpose compost outside on the terrace - last year I only watered them about twice a week - I water when the leaves begin to flop and not before.  

Also, I only  feed when the first truss of fruit has set and then again about a month later.  That's all.  They're pretty tough really and if you don't mollycoddle them they're not so susceptible to fungal infections like blight, and besides you get much better flavoured tomatoes
