Californian Lilac Ceanothus help required

I agree with fidget's recommendations but I fear it's too late.

So many plants are completely potbound when you buy them with no advice re what to do about it.

Using old bricks to disguise a turf stack?

composting needs wet.

I certainly wouldn't be taking my good topsoil to the tip

Give it a go, build up the bricks, fill in the gaps round the edge with soil or compost as you go, and plant something in it.

Sounds a plan to me

Tomatoes given systemic insecticide

If it's already got dead wood and few leaves you can't make it worse. Which Salix is it? 

Identification Please

I'm interested in the scented leaves. I don't know any foxglove that has those.

Don't know, sorry. Except to say I don't think it's anything that's been suggested so far

What is the name of this plant?

The muntjac ate one of my euphorbias.
