Rose identification?

Posted: 15/08/2015 at 18:12

Have a good look at the stems, it might be possible to take some cuttings.Dip in hormone rooting powder and make a narrow trench with your spade, and  gently firm the cuttings in. You will need to keep a check that they don't dry out, otherwise leave and if you feel  they are growing move in about 18 months Hope this works!

Votes please, and a quick questions...

Neighbours tree

Hello, Eighteen months ago we had a similar problem with our former  neighbour. Each summer she pruned the tree, during the year it grew. We watched with concern as our lawn developed valleys from the roots. These got closer to the house. Our neighbour was not known for her co-operation. It was then that I came across an item on I believe Radio Lancaster about this wretched tree We printed off the item and others found from googling and gave her copies This was on a Monday morning  Tuesday at 9a.m. tree surgeons were round clearing it In addition to the information from Googling we enclosed a letter saying we would regard her responsible for any damage caused to our property We told her that our copy of the letter would go with our deeds if action was not taken

Hello and Welcome 

Good luck for Tuesday. Many of my plants were rescued from the reduced corner and most flourish. Just think you will be on the spot to spot bargains

I am pleased you ditched the sycamore Does the idea of an amelanchier appeal or perhaps a crab apple?

White Dianthus "Memories"

I too grow this plant, it has a lovely perfume.  The browning happens with many dianthus. I try to trim as much of the browning off as possible, then with a hand fork I loosen the soil. This is followed by a good watering and a seaweed feed

Now is a good time to take cuttings Gently pull a slip, a on flowering shoot, dip into water, then into hormone rooting powder and plant around the edge of a plant pot

What a lovely challenge!   I saw an Alan Titchmarch programme last week in which he designed a garden suitable for  a long , narrow garden, might be worth a look.
