I have 2 the same, one works well the other makes soot no matter what you do to the wick. OH has now rigged up an electric cable and I have a little electric heater, so much easier.
I have Mme Alfred Carrière, beautiful, and repeat flowering, but it grows quite big. My New Dawn is pale pink in the sun.
There is a rose called Mme Plantier which can be grown as a small climber. 7ft is small for a climbing rose. It's perfumed, double, white, not very thorny but I think it only flowers once. http://www.davidaustinroses.com/english/showrose.asp?showr=557 or Beales Classic roses have it or read about it here http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/51795/
They say the traditional day is Good Friday, but don't know why as it changes every year! I usually plant mine the end of March or start of April. But I'm in Dordogne, France.
Done a lot of pricking out of babies in the GH. Lots more to do though, especially petunias and lobelias.
Hosta is this it? Looks great. I'd wondered about one, but then managed to get spare part for my tractor mower, which they've stopped making.
think it will probably go off sideways though.
Have been to the Doc, he said I am run down and tired after the bronchitis in February and the infection hasn't quite gone, so back on antibiotics and cortisone.
That's so good to hear, Nut, makes me feel better.
Going to the Doc this morning as I'm still coughing after the bronchitis in February.
Rained in the night, but the sun is trying to come out.
If that needs a prune then you should see mine! When I planted it over 20 years ago I had a book about shrubs which said Forsythia doesn't need pruning, so I didn't. It's huge with a dead middle now.
It could well be suspensa if it has weeping branches.
I'm sorry to hear that, Dove, but it's good that it was peaceful. Does Ma know and will she understand? I hope she isn't distressed. Hugs for you (( ))
My favourites are Florentines, yummy dried fruit, nuts and chocolate. Otherwise chocolate Hobnobs.
