How soon after spreading well rotted organic manure is one able to sow or plant - I have left it a bit late this year.

I have limited space in my veg patch and wondered whether I would be able to grow raspberries and other soft fruit such as blackcurrants and gooseberries against a fence which gets about 4/5 hours sunshine a day.  I do not want to utilise one of my raised beds for soft fruit as I use them for crop rotation year on year.  Are there any particular varieties that might do better against a fence than others.  Any assistance gratefully received.

Thank you for your advice - I will try Autumn Bliss and I believe Glencove is anbother reliable fruiter.

I was planning on trying to grow raspberries this year, but note that they like a slighty acid soil, to be sheltered from the wind and need constant moisture.  I do not have any cages but was going to plant in a 6' x 4' raised bed in full sun in a fairly alkaline soil, which is in a fairly exposed site.  Any varieties which you could suggest and whether this growing position is suitable would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks, Lorraine.

I have two climbing roses Malvern Hills, but only one has developed varying size holes in nearly all of the leaves.  These are contained within the leaf, i.e. with the edge of the leaf intact.  There appears to be no sign of the culprit in spite of regular close inspection.

Any ideas for dealing with the problem (or leaving well alone) would be gratefully received.

 

Many thanks, Lorraine
