Has Anybody Got This Rose?

Posted: 02/01/2015 at 17:47

I haven't got that rose, but now, having seen the link, I want it.

Also found my plug plant catalogue on line and there was a note in it to say they aren't doing classic Busy-Lizzies anymore as the fungal disease has now hit France. I grew mine from seed and they were fine. BUT - should I now change my name? I'm not a fungus, but it seemed to fit so well as I am a Liz.

It does, Wintersong.

Panda   My slugus giganticus are hibernating.

Haven't been able to do a proper count, the frost never melted, I'm in a frost pocket on the side of a hill. May I do it tomorrow?

DD, your Hellebore looks amazingly unfrosty.
