Ceiros - I live near Ealing and could pop round with my own spade at your convenience?

Thanks Dove for posting the very informative video on pruning and training climbing roses.  I have two beautiful but unruly specimens and can't wait to whip them into shape!

Thanks all.  I've told my friend to give it the heave ho and plant a nice flowering shrub instead!

Hello Forum - can anyone tell me what this is? My friend was given it in a pot and it looks like a tree of some sort.  Its never flowered. Thanks in advance

I had 24 blooms on my potted agapanthus this year and agree with sotongeoff that neglect seems to be the key. The pot is in a very sunny spot and the only treatment they got was plenty of water during the hot spell.

Help please!

Can somebody please tell me what's up with my very mature strawberry tree?  Well I think its a strawberry tree - small red strawberry type fruits.  The tree was already mature when we moved here about 16 years ago and for the last couple of years, I've noticed branches of dead leaves (see photo).  Some branches are sprouting new leaves so I'm not sure whether its a natural process and I cut out the dead bits, or is it reaching the end of its natural life?


Ants in the lawn

I had two nests on the lawn and my husband decided boiling water was the answer.  No ants now but the boiling water has left two big bald patches in an otherwise sea of green lawn!  Men!

Recommend a rambling rose

Hi all.  This is my first posting on GW so please be gentle!  Can anyone recommend an orange rambling rose, preferably disease resistant and sweet smelling?  Hope this is not asking too much!
