To Keep The Trees Or Not?

When I enlarged the photo it looked as though 2 trees were growing out of the same hole. I would get rid of one.

Rowans are lovely and are OK for small gardens. I would get rid of the ash.

If only I could get paid for doing what I love!

How possible would it be to do a training course in gardening and take it from there? People would be more likely to employ you if you had a diploma under your belt.

Hello Betty. This is the thread where we chat, not so often about gardening. Some of us have been here a long time, others are fairly new. Welcome. I hope you like it here.

Bulbs

Not really bulbs, but tubers, I have 3 varieties of dahlia that have been coming up for years, even when it's been a cold winter. They are Arabian Nights, Park Princess and "Pooh". I have others too that have survived winters, forgotten the names. Most people dig them up and store them but mice ate mine so I just left them and had a nice surprise. Some, like Bishop of Landaff, don't survive cold winters though.

I also love Betty Corning, aym280, it has a wonderful scent. I have it in a pot, bought having seen it in a garden open for the NGS.

What are your most diisease free roses?

Shame about your Gertrude Jekyll. My David Austin roses seem more disease resistant than others, but I have most in pots and I feed and water them a lot. The ones in the ground need more watering than other roses I think. I have a climbing "The Pilgrim" which never shows any sign of disease. Lady Emma Hamilton did very well last year, but I've only had her for 2 years.

Sorry, I don't know. I've only grown one I bought in a garden centre, by it's third year it had grown so big and heavy that I left it outside, so it died, poor thing.
