Lovely - thanks guys - I was just writing my blog and didn't want to seem daft in not knowing what they were!

The first one looks a bit like bluebells but I must admit I've seen them all before but don't know what they are!?  Help!!

Thanks, Louise

What time of year is best to prune my flowering cherry - not sure what cultivar it is - was in the garden when I moved here...  But want to take it back quite a bit as it is imposing on the walkway down my narrow garden...

Any help gratefully received!!

Growing veg with little space

Ooh yes I do have some Nasturtium seeds, they are lovely in salads, thanks again for all the advice!!

Red Dahlia I do like your advice about growbags, seems to me they are not as deep as they used to be!?

Thanks all for the advice, I have bought a couple of hanging baskets also, didn't think about tomatoes in those but that might work well.

Anything else do well in hanging baskets!?  I already have strawberries in my fruit patch.

I find often I get the amount of watering wrong, I usually lose tomatoes from lack of water and overwater everything else!

Have a variety of pots / containers in varying sizes (mostly medium to large) and also potato sacks and growbags.

Can I realistically grow much in containers? I don't have much luck with tomatoes so thought I would stick to salad leaves etc, but also love carrots, cucumber, onions, sweet peppers, courgettes and beetroot in particular.

I've bought varieties which will apparently suit containers but wondered if anyone has any tips for me?
