Who knows their roses?

Posted: 15/08/2014 at 11:07

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.

Hello Lizzie, I wrote to David Austin about 3  yrs ago when this happened to my WC If it became too much of a problem they advised cutting the revesion out, otherwise to ignore which is what I decided to do. It has flowered white ever since.

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

Parsnip chips are good Just cut the parsnip into thin sticks, deep fry and enjoy as a second veg with all meats, but  very good with beef

Taking a step sideways. In the autumn, at the end of Aug-Sept when the new catalogue is out .it usually has an offer in it e.g. freepostage or buy2 get one free.. Of course they may not have offers this year but if you  are thinking of buying it is worth sending for a catalogue in a few weeks time. It has  super photographs in too!

Earlier this year I bought some on Ebay these had articles which were of particular interest. I too take mag to the surgery and also to the hospital where they are much appreciated. If you have an allotment society why not take  some there where for a small amount from resale will boost funds for the society

Friends tell me how things are doing and my husband dead heads, at least that is what he says he is doing for which I am greatful Prior to my accident the thought of him gardening was not on the cards!

Old and tangled Lilac - what to do?

treehugger80 has given advice  using methods we used in our then garden a few years ago. It worked and as we removed the crossed branches we could see a shape developing and we had a good crop of flowers. Once the tree has flowered it is important to remove the dead flower heads
