When we lived in England and my first husband was alive he always fed the roses with double the dose. I used to win prizes with them at the local village show!

Grapevines

This is a link from the RHS about pruning grape vines. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=284


I prune mine in winter, cutting each side shoot back to two or three buds. Then when the tiny bunches form I cut back to each bunch leaving one bunch to each stem. Later I cut back any shoots that are blocking the sun on the bunches and to keep it neat.

Yes, I've noticed that too. I sometimes liked to know where a poster is from and what sort of garden they have to be able to answer gardening questions. The old site used to give you the poster's description, if they'd written one, when you clicked on their avatar.

Panda, I think I agree with Lily. Are you naturally blond? What about highlights in pink or lavender?

Morning all.


Since mercury was banned I can't find a min/max thermometer that works properly. Luckily I still have an old in the GH.


I will be thinking of Dove and Wonky today.


We were exactly on the opposite side of the lake to you Chicky, but in 2014. We wanted a good bus service to Verona and nearby villages. Photo is view from the villa, we went with friends.


Must get on and start planting some pots.

Glad you had a good time Chicky, it's beautiful isn't it? Where did you stay?


Oh dear, Lily, I hope it doesn't come back, they are a real pest.

They are beautiful, Fidget. Reminds me of Anne Hathaway's cottage a few years ago.

I spent the afternoon digging bindweed out of the strawberry bed. It came in under the paddock fence, bet I haven't got it all out.
