Roses

If it's not a virus, then it could be as OL says, lack of regular watering. Roses in pots need an amazing amount of water. I have a lot and when underwatered the flowers are small.

It is probably "Herb Robert" a wild geranium. Has it a strong smell? It is difficult to get rid of and readily seeds itself. Fairly resistant to glyphosate, I've found. You will have to be persistent, weeding and spraying.

Have a look at Lonicera Heckrottii , a honeysuckle with fragrant flowers that isn't as big as some and would grow in a large pot. Will need some pruning and tying in position. Honeysuckles are woodland plants so don't mind some shade.

So long as you see a doctor, hurting and smelling sounds like an infection to me, as I said before. Don't try to pull it out, no matter how mad it drives you. There is a little blown up ball thing at the end to stop it falling out, air will have to be let out first to deflate it before gently easing it out. I have removed many in the past.

I think Monty is doing a good job, but he looks a bit tired. Prefer him at Chelsea to GW. Alan T has been on TV showing his own show garden, liked him too. I like Nikki Chapman, she's human, sympathetic and funny and quite attractive. Why do women presenters have to be "eye candy" ? She's a TV presenter, you don't need big gardening knowledge to present Chelsea and there is a mixture of presenters anyway, some of whom are gardening experts.

Oh dear, sounds awful. I hope you manage to get a night's rest. Perhaps you need antibiotics, could be an infection. Go to A&E tomorrow. When I was a nurse I don't remember men saying it hurt that much, perhaps they were putting on a brave face. I've removed catheters and no one even said "ow".

Thank you David. I love your garden. I would like to know the name of the dark clematis too.

Morning all.

I hope everyone who is going out enjoys their day and the rain holds off.

Cranes fly over my house every spring and autumn, they make a hell of a racket. They were early this year, end of February, also higher than usual so photo not very good.
