Honeysuckle Problem

Does anyone know what is happening to my honeysuckle? It is growing on a south facing fence, the soil is pretty dry and I water it during the summer.  Any ideas??

That's great! Do you get better flowering with tomato feed rather than miracle grow. I find miracle grow turns some plans into monsters and they never flower such as cosmos

I has the same question, however if you are feeding pots with summer annuals in them, how often would you feed with tomato feed?

Tree advice

I have a flowering cherry tree unsure of name. Bought two years ago and it was anti a metre tall. Now two metres tall. Flowers in the spring and the leaves turn. Golden in the autumn. A good tree if you have room, however mine is growing tall too quickly for my liking. I bought it from a garden centre for ??25 so a reasonable cost.

They were doing this on beechgrove garden last week using roses and clematis as ground cover instead of climbers. Looked a really good idea if you have the space for it

Painting of fence

I have a pretty small square garden. 10 metres long by probably 9 metres wide. It is a new build house so all my garden fence is the same. The back and the left hand side has been stained brown. The right hand fence was put up last autumn. I am thinking of painting this cream as I do not fancy being surrounded by brown on all sides. Has anyone else done this. What are your thoughts ??

leaf spot on Marigolds?

I am jealous. My seeds are just beginining to show true leaves. The French marigold is a staple annual I think. My granny always used to have them and I love the smell of them. I know this is not related to your problem but thought I would share
