Are you asking this question in advance of next Spring when you sow courgettes? Or is this a question about how you prepare the soil for planting courgettes next year?

They stayed on the phone for over 2 hours??? Something not right there. It wasn't a scam was it?

karools, why do you want to chop the tree down? The crops trees produce vary from year to year and it really is extreme to chop down a tree because you are disappointed with the yield this year.

Gardening is all about optimism; next year the apples will be better.

Baby figs

Alan, the leaves will all drop in the near future so I would wait and see what the leaves are like next Spring.

Does anyone know what this little critter might be?

Yes we have leeches in the UK, especially in ponds.

Don't know what your thing is though.

Baby figs

The figs that will develop next year are at the moment tiny; they will remain like that until next Spring when they will start to grow. If they are big enough to be recognisable as a fig they will not be any use and can be removed in the Autumn.

Ivyhouse, you can try poaching them, but I fear you will be disappointed. I tried it many years ago and was not successful. But, experimentation is what it's all about.

Pruning Magnolia Stellata

They don't exactly sulk, but they produce a profusion of non-flowering, unproductive 'water shoots.'

There are many varieties of magnolia, could you perhaps plant another one in a suitable position, to take over from the Stellata.
