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.

Had a very good lunch with friends and met some nice new people.

Glad you are enjoying your holiday Topbird and keeping warm.

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.

Compassion is a lovely fragrant, repeat flowering, healthy looking rose with pink flowers.

PS. I agree, it looks like The New Dawn.

Does it get enough water? It's planted very close to the wall, which will help to keep it dry. It can't absorb fertiliser if it's too dry. So I'd do what others have said. Cut out the oldest woody stems, weed around the base, give it some rose food, lightly worked into the soil, give it a good water, mulch it and don't let the soil get too dry. I would also be inclined to use a fungicide, anti-fungus only - not a pesticide which is harmful to wildlife.

Morning all. Glad you had a good day, Dove.

I'm going to lunch with friends today. OH is still in England.
