MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 25/07/2013 at 09:29

No rain here. 34° forecast. Leeks need weeding badly before they disappear all together, but they are in the sun. I got up late as catching up on the very bad night before, slept like a log, but late as OH didn't go to bed until nearly 1am.

Good Evening FORKERS

I enjoyed it too. Gardens with plants are the best sort! And there were grasses for Verdun and roses for me.

Good to have you back Nut.

I agree, it's happy but it had a bad time, give it time to get over it.

Garden is getting past it's best as there are plants to cut down and it's getting blousy. Bindweed has been doing very well! But there are still beds in flower.

 and pots

 and the annual end of my newest bed which is planted with the plants that didn't sell at my charity garden party plant sale.

Is it ok to plant climbing roses in a trough shaped planter

Posted: 22/07/2013 at 09:58

I'd give the tall planter a go. I have several not too tall climbing roses in pots, but they are 50cms deep and 50cms in diameter. I have 2 in a trough, but it also is 50cms deep and 100cms long, 45cms wide. When I fill the pots I mix manure, compost and earth in the bottom half and top up with compost. They will need regular feeding with rose fertiliser and lots of watering.

Here is "The Pilgrim", a David Austin Rose, about 4 years old.

 And Malvern Hills and Phyllis Bide, about 6 years old.
