Rambling (?) Rose Disease

Posted: 02/03/2016 at 16:42

Is there any chance of untying those two stems and attaching them separately? They shouldn't really rub against each other.

Have you fed it? I think it looks hungry. Does it get enough water being close to 2 walls like that? If it's too dry then it won't be able to absorb fertiliser anyway.

I have climbers that grow taller than that.

Imogen was on the day that we moved OH's things from the flat in Eastbourne to the cottage in Norfolk. Dartford Bridge was closed, total chaos, cars were sitting rocking in the wind on the M25

Fushia wanted but what kind?

I thought the clotted cream in Devon is so thick you spread it on first, like butter. Softer and lighter in Cornwall so you put it on top of the jam.

I've been to both and they both have gorgeous gardens, but the best fuschia I've seen, growing in hedgerows, was in Ireland.

Have wondered that myself. I suppose it depends if the plants you are putting in them like well drained or moist soil. I've stopped putting drainage in the bottom of pots, just a bit of tile or old flowerpot over drainage holes to stop them blocking up. Here in SW France it gets too hot and dry in summer, plant saucers are of more use.

Yesterday I finished weeding the lower middle bed and planted the rest of the Bellis daisies. Pruned one rose. Got in 5 barrows of logs.

Today it is raining. Glad OH mowed the lawn the other day, it's squelching today.

Kathy, what a lovely garden and what gorgeous hellebores! It reflects all that you've put into it.

Hello Shirley. I found that I didn't get the GW mag straight away, there was a month's gap. So you would probably get the April one. But I could be wrong as I live in France. The May one is a good one as it has a card for half price garden visiting.
