i have just this year bought a new greenhouse and I am growing a courgette plant in a very large pot. It is almost taking over my greenhouse! I have about 10 fruits on it and the plant is very healthy BUT the leaves are huge! Can I cut back the leaves?

I have it in a large pot and was just worried that it would get too big for the pot

I would never again buy a yellow climbing rose! Have had one for 2 years now. Very similar conditions to what you are describing ie sunny spot and we have clay soil. We have yet to get one flower!! Have given it lots of ros?? feeding/potash but still nothing! We have both pink and peach roses that are great at flowering!

I have an euonymus alatus bush which is looking very sad for itself at this time of the year. When should I prune it and by how much?

Thanks christopher2.  My hebes are just about finished flowering now (pink/purple flowers) so think I will do as you suggest as soon as the flowers go.

Thanks Alina.  Yeah I think you are right about the fertility of the soil - we certainly have no problem getting things to grow!!!  Trying to keep the growth under control is the main problem!!!! Will try the potash.
