Water feature

What is your council on? a pond is no more a hazard than anything else.You will need to change the water frequently (other wise it will go stagnant) or a pump.

The garden centers re-cyle them and I often take pots off people so as I can give [plants away in pots with out depleting my supply.

need to thin them out early and plant while in good growth and don't feed but water until settled.Pinch out leading flower ,this will make them bush-er.

New Gardener . . . New House . . . What would you plant?

I do not want grows in your area but it would look nice with some plants growing by your windows ,pyracantha,clematis,honeysuckle or a climbing rose,with small plants in between with a few in pots,even evergreens.I say this as a garden near me is wonderful all year round,yet it is a small narrow garden.The house is a bungalow.It has a green lawn and it has plants everywhere growing in harmony yet it gives the effect of being not only interesting but bigger than it is.But of course your in a very hot climate so I ll have to leave it at that.

Hey, those new fellows have gone.....

Umberella plant

I have a umbrella plant which I have cut the dead leafs and branches quite severe and it survived ,and another I rescued from outside a house that was disposing of a pathetic  plant ,I thought cut it back nothing to lose and left for awhile and it burst forth with new leaves.I would not prune to hard just take the dead bits out and yellow leafs and it will be fine,they are tough.

dead tree fungi

I had a willow tree some years ago which I chopped down, the remains are still in the garden,it did for awhile have a fungus ,(flat type)but it did not spread elsewhere,but beware of the honey fungus.
