Can anyone recommend a leaf blower that is really, really lightweight? I have a vacuum leaf gatherer but it is unsuitable for certain areas.
The many leaves on my tomato plants was the problem I just posted - then I read the above! You had already answered my question. Thanks, everyone.
Tomatoes that are growing in pots are growing nicely, but the many leaves put some of the fruit in shadow. Should any of these leaves be removed? Help, please, to this tomato growing novice.
This is my problem, too. The beans are growing fast, almost to the top of the canes. Should the tips be pinched out? Please do tell.
Slugs anf pots of hostas ...... a ring of Vaseline under the rims works for me.
Facing facts I guess that the forsythia, which was there and suddenly died, can't be replaced with something as cheerful in Spring. I must say that both mahonia and japonica do grow to good heights and could be the answer.
Thank you for your ideas. Fatsia and mahonia sound right, although I had in mind a kind of high hedge. Sunshine reaches the area early morning and late afternoon, with a high fence and oak tree providing the shade. Fast growing would be nice!
Would photinia thrive in a shady area? A gap of about 6ft at the side of the house needs to be filled with something interesting. Suggestions please.
