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

It sounds as if the borders could be drainage channels

Thanks guys for your advice. I will make a wigwam!! To grow them up. Just need to find a space for that! Or perhaps as suggested I will grow them in pots would look great on my patio. Do they prefer full sun all day or can the be partial shade?

This is the first time I have grown morning glory from seed. I am wondering what it is best to climb up. I have a fixed wire mesh attached to a fence that I grow my sweet peas up. I also have a 6ft wooden fence. My question is. What is the best way to grow these. Should I just let them wind their way up the fence with a little help. Grow them in with the sweet peas or grow them up their own frame? Thanks I advance

I enjoy GW. But joe swift annoys the hell out of me. All the gardens they visit always are in England'. How about visit some of Scotland's amazing gardens !
