Two queries I need help with  please.

Changing my West facing border I want to remove a conifer tree which is outgrowing its space and I wish to move a lovely big pieris which has outgrown the front of a border and move it back to the fence, When is the best time to do this and will it transfer well without dying? Its good and healthy.

I would like to put an apple tree by my sunny fence and only have space for one small upright tree as my garden is quite small  so space is a premium what would you advise as it appears most trees I've seen seem to suggest I need two for pollination , they did have a limited selection . Does this mean its not such a good idea or would I benefit from looking further afield for varieties. any help or advise would be welcome.

help me identify a plant /weed please

I have a small  plant  which is covering my garden its not unpleasant and almost acts as a filler between plants . It has light, green airy  leaves with tiny pink flowers .Grows about  12 inches max. I had a few last year but this year there every where . They are helpful at the moment giving shade to my hot borders but i think I may have difficulty controlling them . I like wild flowers but there seems a lot of these this year  and one or two low growing plants have been a bit swamped . I keep pulling them up but they keep coming back . I think i may have aquired it on the back of another plant i bought last year . Wish i could send photo but will have to wait till someone can assist me .Im not too good on techy things. Does anyone recognise this description . If not i will try and send pics  again soon .

Jasmine problem

My  jamine album was doing really nicely and was large and lush when the last frost came it killed of all the green growth. I cut out the dead growth and left the stems that seemed to have some green showing . Although i did this there is no sign of any new shoots. Should i cut it right back to the ground , leave it as it is or dig it up . This plant has been in two years and was doing really well. Any suggestions would be welcome

Seeds query

Brilliant advise . Will try the kitchen roll test and see if it does the trick If I start now it will give me plenty of time before I start planting properly .Many thanks  to both of you.  

Seeds query

Sorting out seed today  some packets unopened some opened  that I bought last year and never used . They say past there used by date on some and  some have no dates at all .Should I throw them or still use them .Some tomatoe seeds. courgettes,cucumbers,  some flowers various seeds . What are the odds on them growing ? I have a very small garden so only use a few seeds each year . It seems  a waste to throw them away but I don't want to waste my time on them if they don't grow well .Any help would be useful  Thanks Mo 

Pots , planters and compost

I would love to do this . Is a possibility then I could recycle instead of replace . I live near Ryton organics I will call over there and see what would be there best suggestion  for my small space . What with dustbins ,green bins and plastic recycling bins space has become a bit of premium. definately worth a thought .

Many thanks Mo
