I use the product of the shredder as mulch. It's very good at holding in moisture. You don't want then too soft and well fed,

I wouldn't worry too much if they're all still alive. All those sick looking leaves will drop soon and you'll get a new lot next year. You can cut off any pits that don't regrow next year.


They're all tough hardy natives which put up with a lot. The V. opulus seems to require more moisture than some in my experience though it doesn't die, just looks depressed.

there's a whole lot in this series, aimed at GCSE level so not too heavy


Call it Plant Biology rather than Botany and you can find stuff that's more accessible to the average person. You can work up to Botany later.
