Well all i can say is Thank you very much,
My need to know is,I visit The Gambia at least once/twice a year, Although they grow many types of fruit.... Banana,Pineapple,Papya , Orange,Lemon, etc but NO Apples,so the only Apples some of the people have tried are imported ones and as one of the poorest countries in Africa,not available to many, if i could take a few suitable trees out next time, may make the' smiling coast 'smile even more.

What about a flame thrower, this treatment done as a 2wk "walk" up and down the drive is quite easy. These flame guns are available in gardening supermarkets.

I suggest looking where you bought the roses from,,make sure the pots are big enough, ensure that the drainage is good eg polystyrene or broken pots place over hole in bottom of pot,if you have garden soil, mix in some grit,home made compost and feed mix well.

depends on when your Clematis flowers,try to move it when it becomes dorment, make sure the hole is deep ,water well, with fertilizer added as a good start,to a new life,
before you dig up the Clematis water it well some time before.
Things to remember with a Clematis is---- plant deeper than usual--- in case of Clematis wilt.-- keep roots in shade or protect with stones,or other plants, when you do move it take as much soil with it as possible.
