I have just bought a new plum tree and also a pear tree when should they be pruned?  I don't expect I will get fruit this year but hopefully next year

I have a big Aubergine in the greenhouse the first aubergine is small and dull but it now has about 8 aubergines which, although quite small, are healthy and shiny.  When should I pick these?

I have been having problems with cats - DISGUSTING !!!!  I took the advice of orange pe.el and that seems to working.  I cut it into shreds so it doesn't look unsightly in the border

No blossom or magnolia flowers

Thanks.  I have been feeding it as I thought that was the best thing to promote flowering and it obviously hasn't worked.  Will stop now in the hope of flowering next year.  It originally flowered on our Wedding Anniversary so here's hoping for next year !!

My magnolia flowered beautifully in a pot for its first couple of years.  Last year I potted it up in to a huge barrel and it hasn't flowered since !!!  It looks so healthy but no flowers.  What have I done wrong ?
