Rose pruning advice please

Posted: 20/12/2014 at 14:00

I'd prune the side shoots (the ones growing off the main stems) to three or 4 buds, roughly 6 inches. But I usually do it in March, though it can be done earlier.

Just having one, thanks Panda.

Put up the tree this morning. Must sweep the floor and arrange pressies around it.

Shed treatment query

We used Cuprinol Garden Shades too, I like the wood showing through slightly. Though, after a second coat it hardly shows at all. It preserves the wood but lets it breathe.

Comfrey

I have a bed of comfrey and my dog ignores it. Pretty when in flower and good for the compost heap.

I have a freezer full of veg, such as runner beans, broad beans, tomato purée and veg soups. There are leeks, carrots, potatoes, perpetual spinach, purple sprouting broccoli and kurly cale in the veggie garden and several trays of onions and apples in the garage.

Morning all.

We are going to a Christmas party tonight. They obviously don't watch Strictly. Hope OH has set up the recorder properly for the Final.

I'm always nice, Beaus Mum!

It's my birthday

I hope Dove's OH has had a lovely birthday, think he did from what Dove said elsewhere. That is one reason for my post, the other is so that Verdun will get royalties.

Finding a plant

I've found an anemone called Annabella Rose. The RHS says the only nursery supplying it is near Loch Ness, but they do mail order. But I think Hydrangea Annabelle looks lovely.

Morning all.

I hope things work out for everyone waiting for something. When 2 of my childrens' bags were stolen from my car they were eventually found in a wood and the Police sent them to our village Mairie. Money was gone but all keys and papers were still there, but too late - we'd got replacements.

Really must get on with some HW today. Then put the tree up. But need to get logs in before I clean sitting room. Still raining and it means pushing wet wheelbarrow across tiled floor so I'll have to wash floor afterwards.

Local carol service tonight then meal in village restaurant.
