Has Anybody Got This Rose?

Posted: 02/01/2015 at 17:47

I haven't got that rose, but now, having seen the link, I want it.

There are lots of roses growing in big pots in David Austin's garden and I grow them in pots too, just need to keep them more fed and watered than ones in the ground.

HELLO FORKERS!

Been a horrid, cold, grey, bleak day. I've been hibernating, ironing and searching Google for B&Bs in Suffolk in July.

Also found my plug plant catalogue on line and there was a note in it to say they aren't doing classic Busy-Lizzies anymore as the fungal disease has now hit France. I grew mine from seed and they were fine. BUT - should I now change my name? I'm not a fungus, but it seemed to fit so well as I am a Liz.

If there is anyone in France looking at this, (DD, but I've told her already) I've had good plants from http://www.promessedefleurs.com/vivaces.html  and https://www.jardinexpress.fr/

It does, Wintersong.

Panda   My slugus giganticus are hibernating.

Haven't been able to do a proper count, the frost never melted, I'm in a frost pocket on the side of a hill. May I do it tomorrow?

DD, your Hellebore looks amazingly unfrosty.

New Year Gardening Resolutions

Posted: 01/01/2015 at 11:32

I'm not doing New Year resolutions, I will just muddle along as usual doing what I can in my too big (my fault!) garden and coping with the weather and circumstances. Some of it will be lovely and some of it won't. Some veg will do well and some less well. But my OH will probably still tease me for being out there so much!
