I put 2 new saxifrage plants in my rockery this year.  They have flowered well but the flowers are now seeding.  Should this plant be cut back as it is becoming straggly or should I leave it to die back naturally?

How to tie a conifer

Posted: 27/05/2015 at 14:46

I have sadly just taken down a large conifer and the little one beside it looks really sad.  It has become a bit misshapen.   I would like to tie it to make it look better and hopefully it will fill out a bit as it is getting more light.  What is the best way to do this and should I use wire or garden twine.

Patio Pear

Posted: 25/04/2015 at 09:35

Last year I bought a patio pear tree and didn't expect it to fruit but I have great hopes for this year.  The leaves look really healthy.  Should I thin out some branches or cut them back a bit or is this not the time to do it ??  Please help this novice fruit grower. I also have a patio plum and apple so advice on them all would be much appreciated.

Grass seed and field mice

I have just sown grass seed and as soon as I had turned my back there was a field mouse at the seed.  Can I do anything to stop them demolishing all my hard work ????
