Lovely, Ighten. How is your house coming on?

Is it ok to plant climbing roses in a trough shaped planter

Thank you for the photos. I agree with Lyn, but I would use liquid soap. I don't use any pesticides know and the natural balance is restored. Some years, of course, there are more aphids than one would like but others years there are none. I leave it to the natural predators like ladybirds.

I think the rose, lovely flower, will need a new pot next year, some of the leaves look a bit pale. In pots they need more feeding and watering than usual.

 But she knows that flower tubs are forbidden!

If cats are allowed then here is Alexa who also follows me about. Was a stray, semi wild, in the woods near my daughter. Daughter managed to catch her when she was a child and has been with me ever since. Now rather sweet, but was full of hiss, spit and scratch when young.

Here is my gardening buddy. He's always snoozing somewhere in the shade nearby when I'm weeding. He's 11, but was 9 in the photo. I took a photo recently, but I can't find it. Usually looks scruffier, just been bathed.

DD arrived - at last. She got very lost and her phone had broken, no Sat Nav. We had a good chat and she brought rock cakes because we'd talked about them, lovely, better than at school! Think she was here for about 3 hours and we haven't finished saying all we wanted to say yet! Sorry, forgot to ask OH to take a photo, but it's not as though we were visiting a garden.

Tomatoes. Do I have the dreaded lurgey?

Looks like blight on the stems. Mine had blight early July, everyone says it's fatal and infectious. I sprayed and sprayed with something I got in the GC that said it wouldn't stop you using the fruit and the blight has stopped. The stems still have brown patches and the earlier tomatoes weren't much good, but all the tomatoes that didn't have it have been fine and I've had a reasonable crop. Plants have grown new green leaves too. I picked all the brown ones off.

Thanks Nut, I missed that. We were in Shropshire on holiday. Lots of photos. Chicky is young and slender. DD hasn't arrived yet , hope she's not lost. It's a bit buried in a forest.
