Moving roses

Posted: 18/02/2015 at 12:30

I would prune them, dig them up, plant them in large pots as soon as possible. End of March will be a bit late to dig them up anyway. Then treat them as pot grown roses until you are ready to plant them in the new house. Don't forget to keep them watered and to feed them in March.

HELLO FORKERS!

Bench looks great Yvie. Not a long way to go, just needs summer to arrive.

We've been out to buy more deer fencing, compost and bird food. Those bluetits get through an awful lot.

Glad you had a good holiday, Lily P.

Bekkie, does your dog have DM? If that's it then don't blame yourself. Not your fault, it's genetic. Nothing to do with food.

I think you've realised now that I live in France. (another thread)     

But I've been gardening for over 40 years, still make mistakes though.

You can put shrubs in big pots to give privacy. If you are good at art, but short of cash you can use plastic dustbins with paint effects. Make sure they have drainage holes in the bottom.

You could do gothic in the dark bit, cottage with lots of flowers in one lawned bit, modern with perhaps a seating area in other lawned bit and the back bit could be covered with weed suppressant fabric and gravel and have pots with Japanesey sort of plants like acer palmatum (green and purple), bamboos (smaller varieties) and camellias and dwarf rhododendrons in acid compost.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Oh dear, Forester, I hope you are OK.

I sowed broad bean seeds in pots in the GH. And I finished clearing up the prunings from the Wedding Day rose that acts as a hedge for the veggie garden. Filled 7 piled high wheelbarrows! Hasn't been pruned for a few years. Here are before and after photos. 7 metres long (not all in the photo). Well taller than me. Couldn't mow the grass under it as the rose had been in the way.
