Shrub for a shady corner

Thanks for your ideas. Think I'm going with a hydrangea, as they're on offer in the local garden centre!

Blueberry bush lost all its leaves

My blueberry in a pot had done really well this year, gave 3 kg of fruit, and looks very healthy. I have, dare I say it, watered it with tap water, but have fed it regularly with ericaceous feed. It needs some pruning, so will look at the RHS site. Thanks Buddyboy.

Hope your Mum's blueberry bush gets better, Steve.

We've cleared a corner in the garden, but it's quite shady, under a cotoneaster. It does get light and some sun, so what flowering shrub would you advise planting there to give us some colour?

Thank you Valerie. That was very informative.

The tomatoes and peppers are coming to an end in the greenhouse. Are there any veg we could grow in growbags in the winter?

Supernoodle, lemons take a long time to grow, and yes they are self fertile. Happy you joined in !

Thank you for your advice and comments. I will certainly give it some new compost.. Pansyface, it hasn't dropped its leaves before, so hopefully having some fresh compost will help it.

Verdun, it seems to like it outside in the summer.

I have a lemon tree which stays in the greenhouse over the winter and is due to come out soon. It's dropping a lot of leaves and its leaves are rather yellow. I've watered it occasionally during the  winter and am now feeding it regularly with a fertiliser for citrus trees, so I don't know what else I can do to make it happy! Any ideas?

Thank you all very much for your help. It's climbed to the top of the trellis so maybe we'll have some flowers sometime! Verdun, will certainly prune it in the autumn or spring.

Again, many thanks.

We planted a honeysuckle 2 years ago, but it still hasn't flowered. It's healthy and has lots of leaves; we haven't pruned it at all so not sure why it's not flowering.

Anyone any ideas please?
