I kept last years lavender plants outside, tho mild winter, I have no greenhouse, I could do with one. I've just bought a plastic one to put me on.

I got the free lavender plants and fuschias last year from GW also free fuschias and petunias this year, they arrived v well packaged and in excellent condition, ok they were small but that's to be expected but they r all growing well. I've no complaints about them and I think they were all from T&M!

Thanks for your quick replies, i'll put my gardening clothes on soon and get down on hands and knees, never had to deal with suckers before, thought they may be, I have heard about them, mainly to do with roses. Ta.

A bit of advice needed please! My plum tree was a bare rooted one, there are 2 extra shoots growing from under the ground, they are very strong growing and leaves and stem look bit different from main ones, are they suckers? If so do I cut them off from below or above the ground? Not been any blossom on tree yet and are Victoria plum trees more prone to suckers? Thanks.

Advice for my strawberries please

No fruit on my strawberries yet but loads of flowers, should I put a cloche over them to speed things up?
