they like lime free soil and water when really dry and feed with liquid feed  they  don't like frost.

No to everyone who asks for donations ? Do you agree or disagree with this ?

you need to  get the families and children to get donations  of flowers or cuttings from family and friends and get fathers to build flower beds and dig etc ,you can get a lot of free timber from skips .You cant keep on expecting firms and supermarkets to provide for your ideas and schemes,they are not bottomless pit of money and it will be more rewarding if everyone involved plays apart in making this garden.

What can I do with my spring flowering bulbs?

you either leave them  or dig them up and put in a pot or tub and cover with soil (to prevent drying out  and wet occasionally and leave in shed till autumn but its best to leave them if you can and divide if need be.

it may be ants carrying the aphids to your leaves  causing the curl.All fruit trees should have an oily rag around the trunk of the tree to prevent this ,(veggie oil is what I use).

you will need two,male and female plant if it is not self fertilizing .They are quick growers when they start and lot of water they like but they don't like being pruned although it  is needed as it will take over.Because it is a small plant you will need to water it each day  and watch for pest damage as a small plant it will take time to establish.
