Do my grape hyacinths have to go?

They do get a bit out of control and you can move them to other places otherwise they will take over.

Rose problems

looks like it could do with pruning those dead bits out and cut back and some well rotted horse manure and good watering but it must be said that some old roses have gone beyond there sell by date and to that I would say take some cuttings.

Can you see what it is yet?

well that's re-cycling and it looks good too! I or rather my husband has made some very nice raised beds from re-cycled decking found in  a skip and made 6 good sized raised beds.

How many?

The thing about 5 a day veg and fruit was thought up by  a nutritionist to get people to eat more.it was not so much how much, but getting people to fit a bit more into their diet instead of the rubbish they eat and so her clever way of making phrase work for people to eat more sensible caught on and is used and said everywhere.

Its sounds like just  a bit of sap has escaped .if you pruned with clean tools and did a clean cut ,it will be alright but just as insurance take a cutting.

I don't put and food waste as in dinner left overs in the bin as this attracts vermin .I drown my  by putting them in  a bucket of water and making a feed .(the seeds and roots destroyed)for the flowers along with my seaweed and comfrey brew.

planting trees in clay soil

I have just moved my pear tree and it was in very wet soil ,so put it with a bit of mixture of gravel and soil(and compost) and  trod the soil well down and water each day for a while even thou the ground is sodden. you can grow fruit trees in pots as long as you remember to water well so they should be alright until if or when it dries out.
