Sick roses

Any chance of pictures Mandeli? Sounds like a deficiency in the soil. What soil do you have...chalky, sandy, clay? Does not sound like any kind of disease. Try digging in some nice composted manure around them and see what happens.

unwanted grass

Old carpet will work but make sure it is synthetic as the grass will come through rotting wool carpets. Will take quite a while to go using that method. Hope you are not in too much of a hurry.

Instead of weed membrane use driveway membrane. It won't get through that!

Yes and any leaves that look battered as well. You slowly cut the leaves up the trunk each year so you end up with a nice full head at the top.

Hi Verdun  Have to say the only plant I really won't tolerate...apart from the obvious like knotweed...is monbretia. Can't stand it and replace it as soon as possible but having several "large in the middle of nowhere full of rabbit and deer" gardens any kind of flower is a blessing! I let things like comfrey mint and lemon balm fight it out. plant honesty and sweet rocket, wild mallow. All thugs that I wouldn't ever use in my own garden.

Where are you that roses don't grow well? Tried to look at profiles earlier and computer said no!

My main interest?....Gosh how do I answer that. I want to garden the world! I am an addict when it comes to plants. I can never learn enough. I garden for a living so my passion is my work. I love to take on a new garden and make it work be it tiny back terrace garden or plonked in the middle of the countryside garden. I try to plant with the site in mind. If its semi wild keep it that way just add more interest. I never try to force a plant to grow where it doesn't want to be. Nature knows best and I go with her. I also share the love lol. Can never throw a plant away. My gardens are so varied that what doesn't work or is not wanted in one garden will flourish and be loved in another.
