I bought a Chinese Gooseberry early last year. It has grown very well. But as yet I have not had any flowers or fruit. Any advice?

sick honeysuckle

Hi I have a summer flowering honeysuckle. It is two years old. Last year it flowered really well. This year it has grown well but I have noticed in the last week that the leaves look a little yellow and black and droppy also the flowers are very weak. I think its been getting sufficient water and not over watered. Any suggestions woudl be most welcome.

Bedding Plants poor showing

Posted: 22/05/2014 at 07:40

Can anyone advise. I have put a lot of bedding plants in and they are really disappointing so far. For instance Marigolds with hardly any foliage and flowers that are very poor. The marigolds are in the same setting as last year where they really thrived.

I am having simialr problems with pansies and begonias.

Pruning advice for Winter Honeysuckle

Posted: 02/05/2014 at 12:54

Ahh! Maybe I should move it to a location that will allow it a bit more space. I have some annuals in that area just now. Would it be ok to prune it now and move it at the end of the summer?

Hi all, my Dad died suddenly and peacefully last week. I am wanting to plant something that will be in bloom at the time of year to remind me of him. I'm an inexperienced gardener and so something easy would be best. I have a south facing, medium size garden. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
