Feeding roses

Posted: 05/04/2015 at 23:00

If I haven't got around to the manure in autumn then I sprinkle the rose food around before adding manure. I have 2 beds with bark and I just chuck the fertiliser on, it would take ages to move the bark away from each shrub and plant. Then I hope the rain will wash it in.

Was lovely and sunny today so when lunch guests left I went and edged the end bed, but needed widening as OH has trouble getting the tractor mower round the corner. So took up a couple of feet of lawn. Soil was horrible pale clay. Dug in barrow load of manure and a sack of compost. Then had to move the Tiarellas as they were no longer edging the corner of the bed. Now I have a nice gap for another plant, probably a Geum Borisii which is in the cold frame.

My lunch party went well, there were 14 of us in the end so I was glad OH brought in a garden table. Dining room one can seat 10. Slow cooked lamb was very tender. I didn't need to do a pud as 3 guests brought lemon tart, trifle and chocolate mousse  

When everyone left I was able to get outside and do a bit of weeding and edging.

Morning all. Thank you Lesley.

OL, tea before bed is definitely a sign of youth. When you are older it will make you get up in the night for the loo so you try to avoid it!

Happy Easter everyone.

Well done Matty

I thought I was one of the only people who doesn't care for clematis growing through shrubs.

Been busy, lunch for tomorrow prepared, tables set, dining room hoovered and dusted (but OH did that). Vase of flowers picked and arranged for church tomorrow. Also got out into GH and pricked out loads of lobelia, more petunias, double pink cosmos and ageratum "Blue Mink".
