HELLO FORKERS!

Night KEF.

I'm off to bed now, runny nose, sore throat.

Black spot on roses

Posted: 29/10/2013 at 19:44

I have a Paul's Scarlet which nearly died from black spot and disease years ago. I then realised that the overhanging roof of the house was keeping it too dry. I sprayed it every 10 days with an anti-fungus and fed it and watered it copiously every few days. Now it it green and healthy and all the disease has gone.

I have a small, rotary, petrol, mulching mower with a Honda engine, a big Honda rotary mower and a Kubota tractor. But I have about an acre of garden and another acre of rougher ground to mow.

What is it? (Before I chop it down!)

I get weed cornus popping up in the middle of other things where I don't want them. They only have boring green new stems and brown old stems. They aren't easy to dig up and when I cut them down they get more vigorous. I hope yours is a nice one and not one like mine.

Strimmer or mower?

I have a steep bank about 30 x 5 metres and we found a petrol, easy starting, rotary, mulching mower is much the easiest. It has a Honda engine, but it's not a Honda make so it was cheaper.

Morning all.

Dove, I expect after the initial quiet you will be surprised by how much you will have to cram into a day after retirement. I volunteer for things and time just vanishes. Didn't have any time to garden last week.

I like chocolate with marzipan or nuts. Also chocolate liquers and Mon Cheri

Welcome back Dove, glad you enjoyed seeing nut.

I have a pond too and the fish bred like mad at first then most died 2 winters ago, just like fidgetbones. But most of them must have been around 8 years old so elderley for fish. Saw 2 this year.

I can see you both too. But I often find that when you post something you don't get a response, people post what they would like to say and don't engage, like in a conversation. Tha's what happens in forums. But if you ask a question here then people often do respond.

what to cover a south facing wall with

Posted: 28/10/2013 at 17:47

I have a clematis called "Diana" which is doing well on a south wall. It is growing with a grapevine.

 There are loads of clematis on this site, so you should be able to find one you like.
