Hi I have a average to small garden and wish to grow a rose for its hips, can anyone suggest a suitable rose that has edible hips. Many thanks.  

Talkback: What to prune in winter

I was bought a standard rose last year in a pot, it has very small read flowers. When and how should I prune it as I have not had a standard rose before?

Its July and back in the spring I bought from the garden center a set of 3 blueberries    I planted them up into bigger pots with the correct compost and put them in a sunny place in the garden. They had a few new leves but now are stripped bare and just the framework is left though it is bigger then when I bought them. I have no pets Is there anything I can do to rejuvenate then? or give them another chance for next year.

I have no pets and they are in the sun but now only have the bare framework of the plants and nothing else. any sugestions of what has gone wrong or how I can rejuvenate them.

I'm glad I looked at this video before I planted out my blueberries. I now know what is the best for them. Thanks.

Hi Adam, I sow my various seedlings and put them in the heated propagator to start, I also take them out as soon as 2 small green leaves show. I then keep them in my unheated conservatory but they then continue to grow and resemble cress rather than short stubby seedlings that you see in your magazine. Where am I going wrong.
