If the tree has caused damage you need proper legal advice which none of us (as far as I'm aware) are qualified to give.

Check your household insurance - that may give you cover for legal advice in cases like this.

Good luck. 

Tomato leaves curling?

Posted: 09/06/2014 at 15:46

There are all sorts of causes of stress in tomatoes - my deduction is that as this is only happening with one plant it's not likely to be temperatures - it has to be something that can be a variable e.g. watering.  And as Greathat said they're being watered every day, I think it's likely that is overdoing it.

However, I would treat the aphids with an organic treatment - don't want them to multiply - and they will!!!

Tough love 

Honeysuckle

Posted: 09/06/2014 at 15:13

Honeysuckles like their roots in the damp shade and their faces in the sunshine - as if they were growing through a hedgerow or at the edge of a woodland.  If a tree has grown up so that the honeysuckle doesn't get any sunshine at the top, that might cause a reduction in flowering.

Log piles in damp corners and flat slates/stones for him to hide under.  But if he's found your place he obviously thinks it's ok

Most garden centres sell the eco-friendly ones - some actively promote them - look for packs where the active ingredient is ferrous sulphate. 

I've been able to get them from Notcutts. 

IS THERE SUCH A THING AS 1 METRE HIGH LOG ROLL

Not seen any anywhere Andrew.  Have you thought of trying the bamboo screening, or the willow or hazel hurdles http://www.primrose.co.uk/willow-hazel-hurdles-c-65.html?src=scrn_lhc& 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 ...............
