Yep, good advice fairy.  As a matter of fact superb advice!  Wot a clever, brilliant, nice......FORGIVING.....fairy you are 

Seriously, a temporary windbreak of netting etc. is the way to go for a season or two whilst your hedge is growing rubber

One carrot to,supply you for a week farmergeddon!  Sounds impressive though 

Despite warnings to the contrary, I find large carrots, if grown well, taste just as good as smaller ones.  deeply cultivated, fertile soil and stable water supplies equal good carrots, carrot fly permitting 

HELLO FORKERS!

The paniculatas ..as obelixx said......can be pruned as hard as ??ou like and prob best to go for.

Lily, me too. ,tempted by a new variety of paniculuta but need to identify perfect spot first.  What variety did ??ou get?

Raymond.....could be few reasons why your,hydrangea doesn't flower. ....prob as already stated but they need good moisture to do well.  If it's dry there it won't flower. 

bought 10 litre plant but received 7 lt. sellers says its a 10 lt in a 7lt ??

I agree with all the above advice.  Why not name the company here?  Tell them that and how they respond will be documented here. Naming the company helps us too and perhaps others here have had similar issues with them

Anyone remember the song captain beaky and his band by Keith Mitchell?  Favourite of mine that I got played on local radio for my young nephew's birthday.    It came on the radio as I was driving him and his mates to an amusement park and we all sang along at the tops of our voices......me the biggest kid of all   Lovely!

Get that copper,pipe at scrap yard or builders' merchants.  If you do use copper,make sure it's not covered by soil.
