I have two of these fuschias growing in pots and they have made a wonderful show - I need to move them into the ground to use the pots for autumn planting.  They are still flowering well; should I wait until the flowers have finished before moving them or can I do it now?

The result of taking your advice - thank you!  More flowers this year than ever and the leaves are regaining their colour.

Bookertoo - thank you for your advice.  A tall fence provides some shelter and the tree is the 'centrepiece' of  the new raised bed,  so I shall persevere!!

Andrea 3 - good luck with your tree - it will look splendid in your planter.

Thanks again

Noticed this morning - a recently planted tree (less than 2 weeks) has developed brown leaves at the tips of the branches - could the recent hot weather be the cause?   In a raised bed and well watered  (or so I thought) when it was planted and watered regularly since - but could it need even more?   Should I give it a really good soaking? 

Thank you

Thank you for your response - all the information I needed!  West facing in the shade of the acer will be the new home -  man with sack truck arriving tomorrow to help move it into placeI   The camellia in its container has done very well over the years, so I hope it tolerates the move!

Thank you once again.

I have a white camellia that has been growing in a pot for several years; it's now too large/heavy to move around.   I'd like to plant it in the garden - your advice please, on the best location.   There are two areas with enough room, one quite large and open, until recently home to a silver birch, that gets the sun for most of the day, the other in dappled shade from an acer with wisteria and honeysuckle growing nearby.  Also how best to prepare the planting area, when to do it and how to provide protection in winter.   Apologies, lots of questions - hope you can help.  Thank you.

SUPPORT FOR CLIMBERS ON PERGOLA

Thank you both!   Didn't need the drill, used a nail and the screwdriver through the eye of the screw.  Now looking for jobs to use up the remaining eye screws - shall have to buy more climbers!!

Thanks Palaisglide for your reply and clear instructions.  Eye screws and twine (or wire?) seem to be the answer - less obvious I feel, than mesh or twine wrapped around the posts, until the plants establish themselves.  I have a drill and basic toolkit so a quick trip to the garden centre for the eyescrews and  I can test my skills!! 

Thanks again.

SUPPORT FOR CLIMBERS ON PERGOLA

Having taken advice from the forum on climbers for my new pergola, I have a trachelospermum jasminoides and an evergreen clematis and now need to ask for help on what best to use and how to attach supports to the pergola uprights - 4" square timber; bearing in mind that my DIY skills are minimal/non existent!!  

Thank you.
