I am very much a amateur gardener, and was hoping you could give me some advice.
I was given a golden queen peach tree last year at the end of sept which soon after I planted developed leaf curl. I didn’t realise this at the time and did nothing about it. Hence it has come back again this year. From what I have read on the back of fungicide treatments/internet search, I have missed the appropriate time to treat the tree for this fruiting.
Can you PLEASE recommend when exactly I should treat now, what you recommend treating with, if I should still be adding fertiliser to the soil despite this, and also if I should be picking off all the early fruit buds for the first few years (someone said I should be doing this) and I havn’t done this-however as it was diseased last year only 1 fruit made it to full ripening, and it looks as though only 1-2 remain this year
I would greatly appreciate your knowledge here so I can have a healthy tree which many fruit for many years to come!! Thanks.

I’m about to plant a new area of my garden with some shrubs, and a couple of roses. What fertiliser should I use for these – is there a way that I can just use one sort, as I’ve not got room to store a lot of different fertilisers?
I had two lovely conifers in my garden but they both went brown and had to pull them out, also another one is going brown. Why do they do this, I thought they were an everlasting tree? I am thinking of planting more, so some good advice would be helpful thanks.
I have a passionfruit plant that is growing over the fence between our house and my neighbours. When I walk down the fence line, hundreds of small browny coloured moth type insects fly everywhere. What are these insects, and how do I stop them from sitting all over my passionfruit?
