I overwintered my 2 Patio peach trees in the greenhouse and was delighted with the blossom on them.  One of them now has beautiful leafage and still has blossom, the other has very little scrappy/dying leafage.  What should I do?  They have been sprayed with the appropriate treatment against leaf curl and I have been watering them both the same

Folks are telling me that they are starting to mow their lawn, though Dad never touched ours before April in the past.  We have had hard frosts overnight this week every night since Saturday and I wonder if it isn't too early to start.  The ground is still rather wet too yet

I am in Fife

Thanks

Rhubarb has grown in my garden for the last 59 years.  Don't know what kind it is, just smother it in garden manure at the end of each season and we eat it with custard, in a pie and when we were children.............. We used to get a wee thin sweet stalk and a wee poke of sugar to dip it in.  Then we discovered chocolate bars.......  The folks next door leave theirs to its own devices and it grows for Britain
