    How can I tell if the crops I am growing are ready to harvest? Aside from washing them thoroughly, what else should I do to make sure they are safe for eating? If washed well, can I eat say carrots that I have grown in the ground without cooking them?

    What can I do to protect the fencing in my back garden from windy weather? The fencing was installed about a year ago. We’ve already had one piece of fencing snap last winter and we want to avoid more damage this time round. Is there anything we can fit, preferably discreetly to the fencing to give it more durability?

    Are you obliged to hire a professional if there is Japanese knotweed in your garden? I do not have this issue as of now but a neighbour had a problem with it before and I’ve heard of a few other people in the area experiencing issues with Japanese knotweed so I thought I would ask in advance should it happen to appear in my back garden. What else must I do in this scenario? I am aware of course that you must not cut it but what else must I do and must I not do if it ever pops up?

    Which fruit and vegetables are most suited to growing in a raised garden bed in the UK? Does it vary depending on which part of the UK you live in? What can I grow here in the south of England that wouldn’t be possible further up north?

    What can I do to prolong the performance fitness of artificial grass? With real grass, it’s easy to know what to do but with artificial grass, are there any steps at all I can take to take care of it? Is it really just a matter of leaving it be and hoping for the best? Or are there specific approaches and ways to maintain an artificial lawn over the years? Thank you.

    What flowers are best to attract bees and butterflies into my garden? Do you have tips/advice on how I should lay out these flowers and what colours they should have? Can I confirm that attracting insects to my garden is beneficial to them and to the ecological system in general? I want to play my part in helping out.

    I have a 30 square metre garden. I am considering having artificial grass fitted. If I want artificial grass that is relatively cheap but still long-lasting, what type should I consider purchasing? And are there any suitable brands that you'd recommend based on my preference?

    What is the hourly and daily rate of a gardener in the southeast of England? I am looking to hire someone to perform a thorough clean up but I’d like to know what prices to expect first before I start requesting quotes. That way I’ll know if I've been given a decent price. Thank you.
