Neglected Rose

Posted: 14/05/2014 at 23:41

I would wait for flowering to finish, seems a shame to miss the flowers. Just neaten up the left side a bit, it's not really the time of year to prune. The rose needs its leaves in summer. Do what Artjak says in autumn and February and keep it fed and watered.

Greenhouse at night

Posted: 14/05/2014 at 23:35

I leave mine open at night  as soon as temps are in double figures. But I suppose it depends what you are using it for. My plantlets had to harden off anyway.

Steep slope planting plans - any photos?

Hypericum calycinum makes a good ground cover for banks.

Great news about your friend lily.

The print on here seems to be getting smaller. Is it my laptop or does any one else agree? The writing on my email page isn't smaller.

Sad rhubarb

I've been told it's crown rot. Fungal disease, too much rain.

I wish I could go. It looks wonderful. I use to order plants from them and Beth Chatto years ago when I lived in Kent.

We will be going to England, travelling west in June, past Malvern to Shropshire, then back to Eastbourne, where we have a pied à terre.

Have planted out 4 troughs and 2 pots, gazanias, lobelias, begonia Dragon Wing, and verbenas, but not all together.

There are 2 in a row. OH gave it a really hard prune in 2012 and cut all the dead out and last year it grew like mad, but fewer flowers.

Could it be rabbits or deer SweetPea?

Oh, what an awful thing to happen SweetPea. Weren't you able to salvage anything? What did the eating? Slugs and snails?

Have finished moving enough stuff out of the GH so I've now finished planting the tomatoes, sweet peppers and cucumbers.

Finished planting the outside tomatoes, peppers and courgettes, not the cucumbers - still hardening off. Planted French marigolds by the tomatoes and by the beans. Nasturtiums all coming up by the broad beans (which are flowering).

This afternoon, back to flower gardening.

Morning all.

Been busy sorting non-gardening stuff.

Hope the day continues like that, Clari. We should have sun for the next 3 days
