Espalier or fan apple

Posted: 21/06/2016 at 13:56

stone fruits (plums and cherries) like fan pruning.

apples and pears (non stoned) like espalier, step over (single tier espalier) or cordon pruning

What are these please?

Do I need to pinch out these dahlia seedlings?

pinch them out, give them a couple of days to recover and get them outside in a sunny spot.

Shamrock - did the tuber have any growth? if not it might - just - in late summer. but if the tubers were in any way soft and it had no growth it may be dead.

How to save my ivy plant

Posted: 14/06/2016 at 09:11

this is strange, most posts on here about ivy are how to kill it!

is the pot/wall south facing? if it is then the roots may have overheated,

has it been regularly watered? as new plants like to be kept a little damp to establish - but not waterlogged.
