Who knows their roses?

Any chance of a photo GD? (click on tree icon above your text to upload a pic)  Did you work out if it is a climber or not? No need to apologise for not being knowledgeable about roses; what I don't know would fill a large garden

My purple ones flowered about 5/6 weeks ago, yours must be the late flowering ones

I just use any old pencil that comes to hand; I find it takes a bit of elbow grease to get the writing off later in the season!

Nut, do you have a good recipe for this? I have looked at loads on line and they seem to vary terrifically which is a bit worrying.

 I have never seen a crop like it' 3.5 seed trays from one bush; combined weight 11.5 kilos. Sadly this bush has to go to make way for globe artichokes, (there is a limit to how much gooseberry fool you can eat!) I am going to be making wine with this lot

The finches here all love the sunflower hearts and the nyger seed. I feed birds throughout the year as around here the big farms don't go for much bio-diversity.

I'm on the second 20k sack of sunflower seeds this year! Luckily I get it for around £21 locally.

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
