Hydrangea problems. 1. About 6 weeks ago I bought a Hydrangea from Palmers, Greville rd. after a few days it was looking decidedly sick, starting to droop, and what flowers were on it started dying. I kept it reasonably moist in this dry weather watering it regularly (it is in a bark garden) now it has wilted drastically & the leaves are turning Brown. 2. I have had another Hydrangea for about a year, a few moths ago it started to lose its compactness & open out. it is also not flowering

I purchased a Tecomanthe speciosa (three kings island vine), about 12 years ago. Very vigorous climber, which I have to cut back at times. I have it in dappled shade but am so disappointed it has never flowered. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Can you provide advice on an easy irrigation/water system to set up for watering plants. I live in a rural area and have a water tank so I rely on a water pump for distribution. Any ideas?

I have approx 8 sheep that a local farmer grazes in a couple of paddocks that I own. I was thinking of collecting the sheep manure to use in the garden. Can you advise the best way forward i.e do I just dig it into the soil around established plants or do I have to mix a set quantity with compost?

How do you get rid of the weed with dark green, triangular leaves, and large pure white flowers? (We used to suck the nectar from them when we were kids). I think it might be Calystegia silvatica subsp. disjuncta – common name Great bindweed.

How do I go about removing a number of 10 year old camellia plants from a courtyard so that they are not destroyed when my home is rebuilt, and then re plant them about 5 months later. Are you able to recommend anyone who could come and do this for me?

Pine needles from PINE NUT TREES: Is it all right to use pine needles from Pine nut trees as mulch, to place on gardens to reduce weeds, place around strawberries, etc. OR do these pine nut needles have properties that are harmful to vegetable plants, flower plants, shrubs, etc.

We have a rhododendron that only seems to now flower every second year for the last 4 years. For instance this year it has one bloom on it and all the new growth appearing where normally blooms would appear first. Is it a feeding problem. it is around 10 years old and previously flowered every year.
