Neatness.....a swear word in the garden?

Posted: 26/05/2014 at 23:02

I'm not neat or tidy, probably overwhelmed! An acre of garden & a big veggie plot, housework, cooking, social life, horses, dog and not getting any younger. And I get distracted, I see a weed, not where I was weeding but elsewhere so first bit doesn't get finished and I'm bound to leave a tool behind, always mislaying secateurs. Or there is a rose to smell or a new flower out, then the phone goes and I never do empty that wheelbarrow, well I do when I next need it! I don't even through away potting compost bags, they might come in handy one day. And if tools break they get left in the tiny shed or the lean too in case I get around to mending them. Need a decent outbuilding for all the "stuff";

That's very apt then, Scott.

I didn't mention lily properly because she's already a Stargazer Lily, like I'm a pale pink Busy-Lizzie, but I wish I was a rose like in my picture.

Of course, KEF, have you got a purple rinse?

Leaves turning very pale with dark veins

I feed my roses in pots every month and my roses in the ground once or twice a year. They get very hungry, can't send roots out searching for food, so they rely on you. They also need quite a lot of water.
