Hi I have a south facing garden with a wooden fence and a tree at one end. The shady end I have been able to get looking ok with shade plants but the other end gets very little sun in winter and lots in summer. I have a climbing rose, a lavendar, alstromeria. But all look tatty in winter. Can you recommend anything that would look good in winter? Would be happy to plant it all in small shrubs to get an attractive consistent look. I do water it in summer. Thanks

My raspberry plant has seen better days. The leaves are yellow and sometimes turn to dry brown, berries are scarce now. It is still in the same pot as when I bought it and has not grown much as I tend to tidy it up when things start to wilt on it. Do I need to transfer it to a bigger pot or is there something else I can do?

I have a passion fruit vine which is planted in a good location and is watered regularly throughout the drier months. It flowered and produced some fruit but the vine has lost virtually all of its leaves and the fruit does not look like they are going to ripen fully. What has made the vine shed leaves and what can I do to remedy the situation?

I would like to create a edge, like a green wall, on one side of my garden. I was thinking of cypressus as they can grow thick and fast.
What would be your advice on the following points:
Is there someting better than cypressus ?
Which distance do they need to be planted from the back fence and between each one of them (the purpose is to create a thick wall with a 5+ meters height ?

Thanks in advance for your advice

I have a euphorbia (fens ruby I think) which we can’t seem to get rid of. We pull out the root when it is starting to grow above ground. Any suggestions? This pest has managed to kill off a small fortune of plants we have planted in this area.

can you tell me if you sell soil testing kits so I can see what is missing in my soil, and what it needs to produce better crops – if you do sell these can you tell me the price or advise me where I could purchase one from.
