Wintersong, lovely story

Back from a funeral.

It was -5° and frosty this morning, now it's sunny and 9°. Back to the veggie garden this afternoon.

Rose pruning and frost

Each year seems different. In 2013, when this thread started, the spring was very cold. We went to Hever Castle for the rose week and there were no roses out so it was cancelled. Last spring 2014 was very mild and wet. Roses were 3 - 4 weeks earlier than 2013. This year has been quite cold, with snow, but it seems as though it will be earlier than 2013 too.

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.

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.
