Only one of my cherry trees has flowered ( I picked the flowers off ) should I worry? I've been spraying with seaweed once a week, even my 2 year old 'patio' aplle hasn't flowered...

So I went to buy some solar lights.....

we stopped at Hardwick Hall ( one of our favourite places) on the drive back up from Dorset, while hubby and kids played in the woods I nipped in the grounds just to visit the loo...well the wood anemone was so pretty, sitting all alone outside the garden shop (obviously I had to look as I walked past), and they looked so lovely in the woods, and I've a shady border to fill....

think we're all the same here, I shouldn't be allowed out with means of payment anywhere they sell to gc today for we think I'll come home plant free?

What is this and what should I do with it?

Hi Kirsty there's lots you can grow in shade, my shady bed is filling up nicely, what do you want to do? unsure if you can really reduce bush without losing blooms, though there are lots of people here who know way more than me, how long have you lived in your home? Why not live with the garden for a year, just add bits you like (after checking they'll grow where you want them to) and see how thing develpo then decide?

just checked all my lilies, all are growing and showing 2 or 3 ins above compost as it's been warm and sunny, should I cover them a bit higher as it's supposed to be getting colder again? also i have them in mpc with grit, should i add something different, also I may have too many in smallish pots, is it too late to repot any? thanks v much in advance
