Rose Maintenance

Thanks Dave, do you have any other good advice about weeping roses, I find it quite hard to get advice other than climbers and plants? For instance, if I prune feed and mulch just now how often should I then feed, been winging it a bit?

Can I ask if the same applies to a weeping rose tree which I planted last spring? Is hard pruning? It has, what looks like old wood at the start of the branches, should I avoid cutting into this? 

Thanks folks

Has anybody tried Echo Lawn Care?

Dovefromnabove: was going to poist a similar question after seeing various 4in 1 products at the garden centre. Do these ortoiducts do all they say? I've read so much about moss probkems, which I have, that it seemed a bit too good to be true to have one product to save the day! Are you promising me that this will work!

lawn repair

Last summer I used Glyphosate to kill a million dandelions and other weeds on our front lawn and bedding. I knew it would affect the grass which has obviously died, leaving yellow or bald patches where moss has taken over. The lawn has good drainage and is a small area and previously had no moss or other issue other than the dandelions. My question is, how should i go about repairing the had patches, and should i wait till it's warmer (Glasgow)? The mainprob is mainly around the border with some patches in the middle of the lawn.

Many thanks for any help

Thankes Zoomer, had a look and there are roots coming through...tell me all is not lost! Do you think I can rescue them by planting out?

On this theme, I have had Shallots and Red Onion sets in cells which I intend planting out.....some of the shoots are now 6inches! I wasnt expecting them to be this long and cant plant out coz of the weather up here, still cold and raining constantly. Should I clip the shoots before planting out? Have they been in the cells too long? 

Thanks for any advice


Carrots in pots

Posted: 17/04/2013 at 20:11


Stay in Glasgow and sowed carrot seeds ten days ago in a large 38" plant pot with poor compost/sand mix. I have left it outside, uncovered, and while the frosts seem to have stopped I am wondering if a have been a bit quick...should I have started it inside, do they need a bit of heat to get going? It has been pretty mild here, if wet and windy.

Get em in the ground of the few things I knew prior to planting was that they needed a good period of cold weather, otherwise, you may get a bulb, however, the bulb may not split into cloves....this is why they should normally be planted in Autumn for harvesting the following year. For what its worth, two days without a fleece and no probs....fingers crossed.
