Does anyone know how to get rid of ants nests in a lawn? I have a lawn about the size of a quarter of a tennis court and it is thick with ant nests all over. Don't think it helps with it being laid on a very fine topsoil which is like sand. Thanks in advance.

Old Apple Tree

I have been asked to prune a apple tree that is very old and hasn't been touched for several years.Firstly, will it be ok to 'hit it hard' in one go or would it be better to do it gradually over a couple of years? Secondly, there is one thick branch that is growing vertically through the centre of the tree that will have to come out, should the 'wound' be treated?

Thanks for that. Mine is only 12 months in situ so hopefully won't have too much of a root.

Leaky water butt

I've got 4 water butts and I used clear bathroom sealant on all the taps when I fitted them. Had them couple of years now and they don't leak.

Good morning all.

I've got a Cynara Cardunculus that I need to move. Does anyone know if it is ok to do this, please? 

Help please.

Thanks Verdun and obelixx, will make sure plenty of water available this August and see if there is any difference. Following on from that though, my next question would be that if it gets plenty of water and still browns and drops, how do I move a well established plant? Would it be better to 'cut my losses' and cut it down and plant another variety? 

Help please.

Can anyone tell me why my white Camelia flowers are going brown then dropping, please? Some of them drop as soon as they come out, some drop as they start to turn brown. It has been mild where I live - East Sussex coast - so I don't think it can be due to frost or cold winds.
