Broken rose

Posted: 11/09/2014 at 15:01

There may be a way to bandage the break, I'm afraid I don't know about that, but I would simply make sure it is a neat cut and let the rose carry on. In the Autumn you may need to prune the whole plant slightly to protect against winter winds and again in the spring.

Composting

Medavidcook, I use a one litre enamel pot with lid as a compost caddy in the kitchen; it gets emptied at least once a day into the compost bin. Had you considered having a compost bin at home, if that is possible for you? When the compost has been made you could empty it into sacks/buckets and take it to your allotment.

Saw a friend of mine last night who deals in 2nd hand furniture and Bric-a-brac and asked her to pick me up a baby's bath when she is next at the little local auction, to make a small pond. She said she hadn't seen one for 10 or 12 years! So what do people bathe their babies in nowadays?
