Bad year for raspberries

Posted: 16/07/2016 at 09:57

We had a good year for raspberries, but were away for 2 weeks of it, luckily housesitter froze several bags. When we came back OH picked all the redcurrants so I could make jelly. I only make jelly every 3 years, the other years I leave them for the birds who prefer them to raspberries. Side effect was that the birds then stripped the raspberries!

Glad you posted your lovely Etoile Violette, Fairygirl. Now I'm even more convinced that that is what my dark purple clematis is. A friend gave me the cutting a few years ago and she said it wasn't EV but she didn't know what it was. But now I've seen it labelled in English open gardens so I'm sure it is.

This is ragwort, incase anyone wants to know, poisonous.


what is wrong with this rose,

Have you used glyphosate near the rose? Herbicides can cause damage like that. If not, then it could be rose rosette disease. Is it growing lots of extra prickles and getting a red tinge?

I never iron undies, what a thought! But I do like the feel of ironed sheets.

The dark ones are dahlias. The ones in front are a small sort of antirrhinum with rather open flowers, grown from seed, but forgotten the name. The salpiglossis are outside, don't know much about them, but sown in the GH. The white ones, you guessed, are Ammi.

Morning all.


But Hosta, it might have been fun zapping a water pistol at it! Good of her to give you permission. She can't do it if she's out and dog might have improved
