Growing Roses

Posted: 04/06/2014 at 23:37

Do you want photos, or discussions on how to grow roses, or both?

Does anyone know how old climbing roses live to? Some of mine are about 22 years old and getting quite woody.

Is it just me?

I'm with Panda on raw eggs, hate touching them, wash my hands after each one I drop in the mixing bowl. Perhaps it's slime, hate touching slugs, always wear gloves for gardening, never know what you might meet in the soil!

It could be Deutzia Hybrida "Mont Rose".

Yet another ID required please?!

I think it looks like Campanula Persicfolia "Pride of Exmouth", a more unusual one as it's semi double.

Clari I wish you could give me those Hostas, I love them slugs or not, for my plant sale on Saturday. Fancy a quick weekend in France?

 My "Bowl of Beauty" peonies have different flowers on each side of the plant! Weird.

Welcome MMflower. I think that rose could be Handel.

Ighten, love your armeria, never seen them that dark before.

For vegetable growing I've used the Readers Digest "Food from Your Garden" for more years than I care to remember! Alan T's "How to be a Gardener" books 1 and 2 are good for beginners.

Morning all, raining, but at least it'll water everything before Saturday.

Going shopping, then lunch at the Wok place. You could your raw food and they cook it for you in a wok with a choice of sauces. There is ready prepared Chinese food as well.

Making strawberry jam this afternoon for the Tea on Saturday.

It's not easy in Dordogneshire, too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. Where I am there isn't much topsoil, it's limestone and clay.

When I went to stay with my brother in Crieff the weather was lovely.
