Thank you - fingers crossed. I just love courgettes.

They are big flowers on a thin stem with no sign of a courgette.  There seems to be a number of flowers further down the plant.  They are in a container.  So is there still hope ?

Help please !!!!  My courgette plants are looking really healthy with lots of flower buds.  When the flowers get to a reasonable size they seem to just rot and fall off.  What is wrong with my plants ?  Am I doing something wrong.  I have fed them and watered them.

Pruning a Kilmarnock Willow

My Kilmarnock Willow is looking really healthy with loads of healthy green leaves.  The branches are now trailing on the ground.  How much should I trim off and when should I do it?

My patio pear tree is now in its second year.  It looks really healthy with lots of new growth but NO flowers and therefore there will be NO fruit again.  Should I cut the new growth back and by how much?  My patio plum tree bought at the same time has flowered this year and some of the flowers have set to produce fruit.

Hostas, Solomon Seal, Lily of the Valley some types of Iris - the one with the small flower NOT bearded Iris which loves the sun.  Good Luck.

Lychnis

My Lychnis plant was so beautiful last year. At the moment it looks as if it has rotted but on closer inspection it is quite dry looking with a small amount of new growth.  Should I leave the new growth to just come through the old foliage or should I cut it back ?

I live in Scotland and need to re seed a bald patch on the lawn.  What is the best time to do this ?

Thank you.  It is beautiful when in flower but it is now hanging over the garden seat.  Once it has flowered I will cut it back.
