Yews domt really like it too wet or too claggy, in my opinion.  They domt take to being tramsplanted either.  Moved many conifers but have lost a couple of Taxus/yews.  I wouldn't water for a while.  

Tomatoes and fungus

If in doubt contact the manufacturer but I too think its simply as fidget suggests.

I wonder Peanuts if your rozanne is growing in wet ground?  My own plants are mound forming.

Netting for carrot

Fleece is the ideal thing for carrot fly. You can keep it in place all summer if you want to.  Keep it fairly loose to enable unfettered growth though.

Replacing conifers

Hiya Tom

Yes, they are imposing aren't they? 

I think the extra space in your garden, the extra sunlight too, would be good there.  So,,climbers on your fence?  Evergreen and deciduous .......honeysucklees jasmimes, clematis momtana, solanum?  

How do you feel about removing the conifers.?  Up to it?

I think hogweed has shown you the reason Lesley. 

Camellias

Posted: 11/06/2014 at 20:09

Prune now.  You have a whole growing season for it to make some decent growth.  New growth on camellias is usually very attractive too 

Epsom salts, primarily magnesium, but a great tonic to most plants.  

No, have a go with the camellias.  Lovely shrubs and pretty easy too Philippa
