Hi Guys,

I am after some advice, my father recently lost his wife, and wants to plant a shrub in a pot, and asked me for which one to get. I was looking at a philadelphus however I would like one that had my mothers name Shirley, please help.

Happy British Summer Time fellow Gardeners.

Two years ago, I planted some Gladioli in the garden, and they bloomed brilliantly. Last year they didnt flower as well, with this season underway, would fellow gardeners recommend I pull them up, leave them, or discard them?

I have an area, that has previously had gravel, (with weed protection fabric). I have removed both to which I now have a sandy soil surface which I wish to grass. Would my fellow gardeners recommend that I dig in some quality compost to help germination or will the grass seed grow on this surface?

My Garden this year hasn't prospered as well as in previous years. The Gladioli suffered from pests, Delphiniums, Aquilegia's also. This Autumn I have found the fungal growth all over my soil. Is it a healthy Fungi or should I remove and change my top soil?

The branch isnt damaged, but it is all over the shrub. I meant to prune it in spring but didnt get ound to it.
