I bought a couple of Clematis Montana plants yesterday and haven't put them in yet - if we're supposed to be having an overnight frost this week should I wait before I put them in?

It's not a sycamore - it's some kind of evergreen with fir cones, and it's not directly under the tree, but the tree does take a lot of water as the lawn under it is always very dry. It may have already been moved when we had the garden done in May (I can't quite remember), so maybe it's just a bit stressed (although it was always the least healthy of the two).

I have two camellias in my garden. Both inherited and well established. One is in fab condition - shiny green leaves, loads of flowers. The other is not! Yellowy leaves with some brown patches. They have both had the same treatment (fed with ericaceous feed and some sequestering iron, watered with some tap, some rain water). The unhealthier one is in a sunnier spot and is fairly near to a large tree, so could this be the problem, or is there possibly something else going on? There's no evidence of bugs. I'm a very novice gardener so would really appreciate some tips! Thanks

Okay, that sounds good. I'm not sure I know anyone with any snowdrops. Is it too late to buy them in the green?

Oh! Now that's the first thing I would have done wrong, then. In that case, is there anything I can put down to stop the weeds appearing, or do I just need to keep hoeing it? Bought a new hoe today! Thanks for the reply.

I am a very novice garderner and we have just had our garden 'done' by a landscaper. Now it's over to me to keep it looking nice! We have had an acer (cut leaf) planted in a circular patch of the front lawn, but the soil underneath it is bare and so is already getting scattered with weeds. I'm not sure what to do with it - plant bedding plants, put bark / gravel down? It needs to be low maintenance, and I would love some snowdrops next winter if possible. Any ideas? I don't know where to start!
