ASK TOBY.

Byline: TOBY

Q I am putting a 4ins panel fence round my front garden to keep dogs out, but want something attractive on the inside to hide the fence.

Do you have any suggestions please?

A My suggestions would be a climber like jasmine or honeysuckle, or a trained wall shrub such as Flowering quince (Chaenomeles), or Pyracantha, which is spiky.

TOP TIPS

Daffodils which have been forced can be knocked out of their pots and planted in the garden to establish themselves for flowering in the open next year.

Apply vegetables, fruit and roses with a top dressing of fertiliser.

Pinch out the unwanted sideshoots of glasshouse tomatoes.

Start sowing cinerarias for flowering at Christmas.

Complete spring planting of rhododendrons and azaleas to ensure the plants thrive throughout the summer.
