Is it time to feed my Acer Shirasawanum Jordan to my woodburner?

I would cut the long branch to the point where it shoots. If possible I would move the plant to a more sheltered positition and would wrap a double layer of fleece around the pot. In spring ,once danger of frost has gonr I would tip the stems gently of any die back For its first year it looks good and I'm sure will give you many years of pleasure

Who knows their roses?

I have no catalogues handy, so please excuse any spelling mistakes I may make. One rose that came to mind was an older one Zepherine Druid. This can be grown as a climber or as a column, it too has a wonderful scent, and is bright pink.. Try to find a picture it may be of help.

I looked at last night They have some good bargains for anyone looking for rose plants.
