Thank you all. I shall move them out the trough and find something more suitable for that spot. Much appreciated

Thank you. They are Danse de feu.

We used a mixture of multi purpose compost and Earth from the garden. I fed monthly from April with rose feed and watered daily when it didn't rain. This was the same for all other garden roses we have so maybe it's the pots as I had a great display with everything else.

Climbing Roses

i planted two climbing roses last autumn in a very large trough. Neither rose has grown much (a couple foot at most) in the past year and also I didnt have any flowers at all.

There is no sign of disease but they are in a windy spot though have direct sun all day. All my standards and normal rose bushes that are in the same area have done really well so i don't think it is down to the location and conditions.

Am I missing a key element with climbers or could I have just bought a "bad batch"? I do t know if I should cut my losses and get some new ones or persevere with these. Any guidance or thoughts would be appreciated .

Honeysuckle Problems

Help.

I've two new Lonicera Japonica Halls Prolific which were planted in March this year. They both started growing incredibly fast but about 10 weeks ago one came down with this.

I've cut all the problematic stems off but a week or two later the same thing happened. I've also used Bayer "fungus fighter" once a week but it isn't clearing up. Now the other one located at the other side of the house is looking "poorly"!! They get watered daily and are in very large pots with mulch topping.

What can i do to clear this up once an for all.


 


 

Rambling roses and conifers

Posted: 21/04/2014 at 07:43
I have five 6ft conifers acting as a wind break in my garden which are well past their best. Rather than go to trouble of digging them out and replacing them given they provide shelter for another part of the garden I was considering getting a rambling rose to climb over them. Is this a good or bad idea? If good, any recommendations for a good rose that will handle a windy spot?

I want to try growing a few plants from seeds on my windowsill with the view to planting them in the garden this season. Has anyone got any good suggestions on "fool proof" seeds for flowering plants that germinate fairly quickly?

We have a large section of garden on a fairly steep hill and exposed where I want to plant shrubs and trees. What can I use as ground cover around them to suppress weeds and remain low maintenance?
