Pot plant for shade

Posted: 09/09/2015 at 10:31

My problem is to find a perennial (preferably) pot plant with colour or it will be lost because of greenery on each side of the front door.  The two square pots are about 14 inches across so a small plant is needed.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you, Dovefromabove -  that information is really helpful.  I will try and make my tree last, like yours!!

Should my new bay tree be left outside in winter, please?

Also, is any special care needed throughout the year?


staking tomatoes

My problem with growing tomatoes is knowing when to stop removing the side growths.  I have grown the plants in pots  (with wigwams) - but suspect that I let them get too big.  Do these things  matter, please?

Thanks everyone for your advice.  There is more than one problem-  first, I can't lift anything at all heavy, and then the fact that the great leaf fall occurs in areas difficult to reach. A lightweight leaf blower could be a solution, one that could be recommended.

Can anyone recommend a lightweight leaf blower, please?

Can anyone recommend a leaf blower that is really, really lightweight?  I have a vacuum leaf gatherer but it is unsuitable for certain areas.

Please ...

Is there such a thing as a really, really lightweight leaf blower? I am small and far from young!


Tomato plants in greenhouse

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.
