Hi, I have just noticed my 'varigated' pink weigelia is virtually all green now  is there anything I can do to revert it back or does this happen when they get older?

Stopping pepper plants

Sorry, I neglected to mention I have them in pots in the conservatory which yesterday reached up to a  temperature of 100degrees, so do I also have to spray them to keep them to keep them cool?

Having just 'stopped' my tomatoes I was wondering about peppers. I have never grown peppers before and was wondering, am I supposed to only have so many 'trusses' ( if so how many?) and also, should I be doing any pinching out and stopping?   thanks

Hi, me again with tomato questions. My plants are are now just over 4ft high with lots of flowering branches (are they called trusses?) they have baby toms, approx thumbnail size on some. My question now is, am I supposed to stop them getting too tall? I thought I read somewhere that they should only have a certain amount of flowering trusses and then be 'stopped' if that is the case and mine have too many does it reduce my crop?

Which way up do you hang a horseshoe? I have a couple I would like to display but there seems to be contrasting opinions on this

Is there any way to deter these magpies? seriously, it is beyond a joke. They are moving things around the garden, leaving things lying around (bought in from other gardens) and EVERY day I have to pick up lots of terracotta balls that they remove from my pots and scatter around the garden . They don't even seem remotely bothered when the foxes visit!
