When we lived in England and my first husband was alive he always fed the roses with double the dose. I used to win prizes with them at the local village show!

Grapevines

This is a link from the RHS about pruning grape vines. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=284


I prune mine in winter, cutting each side shoot back to two or three buds. Then when the tiny bunches form I cut back to each bunch leaving one bunch to each stem. Later I cut back any shoots that are blocking the sun on the bunches and to keep it neat.

Panda, I think I agree with Lily. Are you naturally blond? What about highlights in pink or lavender?

Morning all.


Since mercury was banned I can't find a min/max thermometer that works properly. Luckily I still have an old in the GH.


I will be thinking of Dove and Wonky today.


We were exactly on the opposite side of the lake to you Chicky, but in 2014. We wanted a good bus service to Verona and nearby villages. Photo is view from the villa, we went with friends.


Must get on and start planting some pots.

Glad you had a good time Chicky, it's beautiful isn't it? Where did you stay?


Oh dear, Lily, I hope it doesn't come back, they are a real pest.

They are beautiful, Fidget. Reminds me of Anne Hathaway's cottage a few years ago.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

I spent the afternoon digging bindweed out of the strawberry bed. It came in under the paddock fence, bet I haven't got it all out.

Glad OH is brighter Joyce, should be a good sign. More hugs.


I've been in the strawberry bed today. Bindweed had come under the paddock fence in the winter, been a real job digging it up but I bet I haven't got it all. Luckily most of the strawberry plants survived the winter.
