It's too early for delphiniums to be that tall, they'll grow weak and spindly at this time of year. They should be asleep.

Morning all.


Horses broke the electric fence in the night, but luckily they stayed by the house. I've put them in another paddock. Log man is coming to mend it this afternoon. I can't bang in fence posts at the moment because of my rib pain from my cough and my arthritic shoulder which has had tendonitis. Lena wears a rug in winter and doesn't seem to feel the electricity in the fence.


Have to go out and buy some more fence posts.

Thank you flowers and aym. I think I did see that thread earlier in the month but it's too soon for me to have seedlings and if I don't post I don't get email notifications. The threads can go by fast on followed threads so I miss things.

Climbing rose for south-facing wall

Another one I have that I love is The Pilgrim, scent is very light (David Austin says highly fragrant, but mine isn't), it has gorgeous yellow and cream flowers and repeats. Has never been ill, but it does like being watered and it likes a bit of shade from hot sun - which several light coloured roses prefer. But I live in Dordogne, the sun is not so fierce and the air is moister in Cornwall.

aym, which is the Gardengirl's thread that you were talking about? I thought you meant this one http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/anyone-done-any-gardening-today---version-3/987672-32.html#latest but it isn't. Or is it the seed one? I'll go and have another look.

0°, bit of a frost this morning, but it turned into a nice day. I went to friends for lunch, their house is on a hill, fantastic views.

Glad you are enjoying your holiday Topbird and keeping warm.

Pruning

Prune Japanese maples in the winter when dormant, not too much at once. Trim to keep in shape.

You can prune roses any time from now if the weather isn't too frosty and frozen, especially if you live in the south.
