I've bought roses, bedding, seeds  and  shrubs from Aldi and their plants are fine. last week I bought enough plants for 2 hanging baskets they cost me £5 60p, and have doubled in size in the laast week, the roses's 2 climber's and 2  shrubs bought and planted last year, are budding up nicely.It's just common sense if they look poorly don't buy

thanks for all your comments, really don't know what to do now though because our neighbours are complaining the trees are blocking their light. They don't interfere with us as they're at the far end of a very large garden but don't like the neighbours being upset

pruning larches

does anyone know how to prune larches we have 3 lovely larches in our garden but they've got really tall and quite spindly. I wondered if we trimmed the side branches if it would encourage more bushy growth. also could we take the top off to limit the height. they must be about 40ft tall. any information would be greatly appreciated

What's so good about fruit trees?

.Hi Martyn, we were very lucky when we moved into our house it already had an established orchard, now 10 years later I can honestly say the best fruit tree we have is a bramley apple. Nothing is wasted it makes wonderful pies and crumbles, I'm sure your Mum would like that, and it freezes very well so once its fruiting well you'll have enough to keep you going all year. In a good year it can be sweet enough to eat raw.  Whatever you choose hope you enjoy it
