Winnecat, if you need to attract bees ,try planting phacelia near them, they grow easy and are a great green manure to dig in with the beans after your done and bees just love them,

Hi Bekkie, i followed Monty on rose cuttings a few weeks ago and have 10 good ones ,they are yellow, deep deep burgundy red and a very nice peachy salmon, im not colour coded so the mix i hope will look natural, im hoping to just completely cover the soil with rose friendly plants so it looks good when the roses have gone to kip Hopefully,

Good afternoon from sunny Norfolk  right im planning a rose border underneath the front window, Now my partner says roses are boring when not in flower, so i need to fill the border up with colour underneath the roses if poss, permanent plants would be best , its on a east /south corner part so gets good morning sun, i dont know much about ground covering plants so any help will be good  many thanks Alan

Hi Dove Sorry , that was one i missed when they were carving me up i think, I emptied the Darlek today as it wasn't doing anything and bagged and binned it all ,a messy load it was too, then Kate pointed out i had placed the darlek on pebbles so the worms would hardly get in to do there job, sometimes i just wonder where im coming from ,I  think i,ll blame the anesthetic. volunteered to do the ironing this morning, then ,decided to de scale the iron and blew the mains, comes in threes they say .
