Pot plants growing much faster than soil

Deadly Nightshade is pretty rare.  You are most likely to encounter it in an abandoned chalk pit.

Fig tree pruning

Posted: 13/07/2017 at 10:42

The shoots should have been pinched out to leave four or five leaves, before midsummer's day.  Next year's figs will form and overwinter in the leaf axcils.  They will be small/tiny.

Should I remove some leaves on the Toms

Those leaves look as though they are functioning OK.  Why do you want to remove them?  Tomatoes do not need to see the sun to ripen.  I am never sure why the tomato has been singled out for defoliation.  Is there any other plant that is messed around with so much?

Tomato plant leaves are brown and necrotic. Diagnosis?

Apple Trees failing to fruit

Your biggest mistake was to choose a Cox.  It is an apple which is prone to everything.  Leave it to the professionals.  There are many other apples to choose from.
