Old guttering

You can sow peas in guttering, before you slide sections out into the garden.

Otherwise it is too shallow for most things. It dries out very quickly.

Scented Jasmine Advice! BERRIES!

It probably needs feeding. Tip the plant out of the pot; it may be pot-bound and need re-potting. If the pot is full of roots, it may not be getting as much water as it needs.

You can discard the berries unless you want to experiment by growing them.

Lovely tree

Lirodendron makes a very large tree in time, so I think you are better off if it is Red Oak!

Ideas for impact tree/bush

Blackthorn is not really suitable in a garden, near a house, because it is not a pretty plant/tree and it has fearsome thorns. It only has one burst of interest when it flowers, then nothing until you have sloes, most years, but not every year.

Meadowsweet is lovely. In medieval times they used to strew the floors with as it smells so fragrant.

Don't try to sow the seeds directly in the boggy area as they will be overwhelmed. Sow them in a seed-bed or in trays as you would any seeds.

Looks like mildew. It's been a good season for it. When the leaves drop they should be renewed by fresh ones.

No figs

Fertiliser, home-made compost, well-rotted manure. Take your pick, depending on what is available.

No figs

Does it need feeding, more consistent watering? How old is it? What is the soil in the pot like? Maybe the change has caused it to miss a year.

Can you see any tiny potential figs at the end of the branches?
