Plant (weed) ID

I know it's a weed, but I don't know its name. I just weed them out before they seed everywhere.

I want to train my Wisteria as free standing

I have a free standing wisteria, but OH banged it a sturdy wooden post to attach it to. You have to keep on top of the pruning. You can buy umbrella shaped supports.

Rambling Rector is huge, can grow to 6 or 7 metres. The soil below conifers can be quite dry and poor as they have fibrous roots near the surface.

Personally, I think the tree is too near the house and the window and I would remove it and put something shorter and prettier there.

Have you met him yet, Punkdoc? I hope he's nice, but if he is you might feel regret for the missed years.

Have made a load of tomato sauce, now in the freezer, with my tomato glut, a loaf of granary bread and a hot pork pie, which we had half of for dinner.

Arg, slugs again

But slugs go underground! Haven't you ever had them in your potatoes?

Morning all.
Raining here.

I must do the housesitter's room, off to Norfolk on Thursday.

I'll make tomato sauce today to put in the freezer, but I'm not going out in the rain to pick them! Have a glut.

Hope Clari feels better soon.

I think Punkdoc is in Sicily, he said he was going.

You can't eat it Dacha, it's gone bad. But it looks as though it's turning into Camembert!

Looks lovely Yvie.

Going to watch "Victoria" in bed.

No way would I roll in the snow!

Have cleaned the sitting room windows, small panes look because of the wooden frame thing that fits on the big glass windows to be more in keeping with an old house. You have to take the frames off both sides and clean them too. Hoovered, done some dead heading and moved the horses to a different paddock.

Making spag bol.

Climbing Rose

It is a David Austin rose so my OH bought mine bare root for me from David Austin, for Christmas, but they didn't come straight away, think they arrived in February. They were good plants. They are a bit cheaper bare root. A lot of garden centres sell them in pots, so you can choose your plant, but I don't know what the stock is like this time of year.
