Has anyone been anywhere yet, any photos to share? We went to Groombridge Place as well for a day out with grandchildren, but the garden (herbaceous bit) was a bit scruffy. Note the huge wisteria.

MORNING FORKERS

Blackest, it's deeply impressive to weed stinging nettles and thistles without gloves on!I have a deep bed which I've put stepping stones in, the sort of thing you sink into the lawn. You can't see them when everything grows up.

watering help

I live in Dordogne and it can get very hot in summer. I don't think watering everyday with a spray on the hose for over a minute would be enough. I water every day when hot. But I've found that if you put the end of the hose into a watering can and don't use the rose or spray then you can give them a good soak with a much gentler water pressure than straight out of the hose pipe. Also sand is very free draining, it may benefit from adding some compost. Are they in troughs or raised beds?

Mine didn't survive the unheated greenhouse. I bring them indoors and take cuttings from the new spring growth.

The purple one looks like a variety of salvia ?sclarea. Orange one, yes, verbascum.

what do i do with this?!

Downloading pics takes some time. You have to wait at each stage. Then they don't appear on your post as you would expect, but when some colour from the phots appears and stops moving you can post it.

What is this plant, please?

Posted: 06/07/2013 at 15:05

It looks like Philadelphus, there are different types. What does it smell like?

Have you had a look at Peter Beales roses? The site helps with identification.
