How do you make a greenhouse safe?

Question from jean anderson

I have been given a greenhouse and wont to see if I can make it safe for children without the expense of re glazing with toughend glass. I believe there is a film you can apply.
1. Is it any good and are there any problems?
2. Where do you get it and does it affect the greenhouse light?

Golden Wedding anniversary

Question from Jeana Gorman

Hi I'm organising containers and window boxes for a golden wedding anniversary next summer (boxes will be planted June - October) Does anyone have any suggestions for colour schemes for this anniversary and long flowering plants. We're in Edinburgh where it can be windy and very wet.

wedding flowers in June

Question from Heather Ogston

Hi everyone looking for a bit of advice.
I am getting married June the 6th next year and would like advice on the best flowers that will be in bloom then. I am living in the western isles so although it is not very cold it is windy! My idea is to grow flowers in pots to have outside our marquee for the wedding. Any advice?

Kolomikta (Actinidia kolomikta) dry papery leaves

Question from paula hewitt

Hi there, not sure if this is the right place to post but i bought this climber 3 months ago and a lot of the leaves have dried right out and it looks a bit sick. I feed it with liquid seaweed regularly and it is growing but these leaves are supposed to be the main attraction of the climber and they dont look too happy, it is plated in a full sun spot thanks in advance.

Shoot People's Gardening Award

Comment from Georgie

As one of last year's winners I've been asked to say how I spent my award. I was utterly amazed when I heard I'd won and thank you to everyone who voted for me.

I've had a great deal of pleasure spending the vouchers in my favourite local nursey, A J Clockhouse in Forty Hall, Enfield and I still have some left which I hope to use for new fence panels and some stepping stones for the lawn path.

I have bought what I would normally consider luxuries such as some mature shrubs, good quality terracotta pots, hanging baskets, new tools, a Haws watering can and lots of river pebbles to top off the pots. I've also given some of the vouchers as a raffle prize to raise funds for the charity, Sue Ryder.

It only remains for me to wish everyone who enters this year good luck and I hope the winners get as much joy from their vouchers as I did.

Identify plant

Question from Darren Gregory

Hi all, I've posted this one before but thought I'd try again. It has been known to flower largish red flowers, that the ants seem to love before they've flowered. This year though, 1 flower only, so moving it a couple of years ago may not have helped it :(
