Such a gorgeous blue.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Grey and misty here, but I don't think it's as pretty as DD's mist, feels as though the cloudy sky as slipped down too low, we are up on the side of a hill.

Good luck to Chicklet with her exams.

Going to the tip with the trailer and a load of rubbish from OH's clear out last autumn.

Hello Michael mpc, I see you were a member of the old BBC gardening forum. Some others are here. Hope you like this forum.

Nanny Beach I clicked on you and found you live near Eastbourne. OH's daughter lives there and we have had the flat above hers as a 2nd home for a few years, but we are moving to a cottage in Norfolk in Feb., keeping the French house which is partly owned by my children.

SW France. We had frosts in October then wet and mild, then recent frosts. It is often colder here than in England in winter. If you click on my name you will find my profile.

I still have some Charlotte. You can eat them as 2nd earlies and they last until now. I don't even bother digging them up until I need them, but I suppose it depends what pests and diseases you have in your ground.

I would look forward to it more than Kefalonia, Yviestevie, how lovely! Harrogate? It's in Yorkshire! Rye is lovely, cobbled streets and beamy houses - the Mermaid Inn is full of character. It's all a one way system, find a car park and walk into the town up the hill. I wonder which B&B in Battle. The best one closed down some time ago.

I've actually done some gardening today, sunny.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Have actually done some gardening this afternoon. Sunny day and sodden garden is drying out. Weeded and tidied the centre of the upper middle bed and planted some violas in it. There was a piled wheelbarrow full of rubbish.

Morning all. Blue sky.

Will cover a cushion this morning and do some gardening the afternoon. Lovely day forecast but garden is still wet. Never finished planting the violas.

Miniature roses mildew and greenfly

Posted: 25/01/2016 at 09:24

I've found that miniature roses don't live very long as they have been bred to give as presents or as house plants. The leaves would probably have fallen off when the new spring growth starts. Some plants get mildew when they have got too dry in the summer. Depends how badly you want to keep them. You could wait and see what happens in the spring. Patio roses, which are a bit bigger live longer. I don't think miniature roses are really bred for planting out in beds, better in pots and they may need a bit of winter protection.
