Thank you Berghill. A new bed required I think!

I have three peonies that have always shown promise in spring then stopped with healthy if spindly foliage and no flowers. They are in shade for 50% of the day in a quite stony area of the garden. I assume they need moving but where to...or are they best in pots?

Raspberries in a greenhouse?

Thanks for the advice. I will leave them outside and net them. Great pic by the way Macd!!! 

Where can I grow a grapevine?

Posted: 23/04/2014 at 19:16

I think I'll try and clear a bit of wall space instead of the obelisk. If I have to train the side shoots once the vine is a metre tall, there won't be enough area left as it tapers to the top. Thank you for the advice Marinelilium and jatnikapyar.

I have raspberry canes growing in a large pot in my garden. I have just installed a greenhouse and wondered if raspberries can be grown inside. I thought that maybe this would give some protection against birds etc.

I jumped in with both feet and bought a Vitis Regent grapevine without thinking through where to put it. I have limited sunny wall/fence space and have found an 180cm obelisk on a website and wondered if it would be suitable. Any advice or ideas...please!

I know I should have pruned around about July but didn't get around to it. It's huge and making a corner of my garden very dark. Is it too late or should I now wait for the spring? Not sure if it's ever been properly pruned.

Didn't get around to pruning mine in July. Am I too late for this year? It's enormous, don't think it's ever been pruned properly and didn't flower very well at all.
