Hucknall is quite correct mi ducks , Ariel way it says,   AND i was born on Linton Rise Sneinton Dale Nottingham. And I remember the first coloured bus conductor to arrive ,he came from Trinidad, and he was so well liked ,first thing in the morning he sang non stop while collecting the tickets and always said Taaaaanks,in the end we were all saying it back to him for fun his laugh was contagious ,a good way to start the day and  a very nice chap, In time i moved on and over the water to Bread and lard land, im posh now cant you tell.I dont say yo anymore instead of you see posh

blackspot on roses

Posted: 22/09/2014 at 09:44

Hi Richard, from lots of passed discussions here its bad news,Bob t/g is at present trying to get rid of black spot on all his roses by grafting,iv thrown away most of mine except two which iv cut right back and moved to 2 buckets in solitary  for 2 months and im spraying one  with seaweed and one with NEEM oil,both safe and animal friendly, i can only wait to see the results which i shall put on here.It would seem most people are now buying new roses ie; David Austin which im told are spot free for maybe 8/10 years then buy new again or hopefully a cure is found by then or some of our friends on here might have better results in there gardens ,if so im sure they will tell us, seems its a waiting game at the moment.Good Luck
