So sorry about the photography.  ( Either too small or too big.) First time I've tried to post a photo like this.

Can anyone identify this please?

Hi Ladybird4,  Thank you for your reply - sorry about the vague looking flowers. Have tried a close up.

Can anyone identify this please?

This just grew in a planter outside my porch. I keep watering it and it keeps on growing.  A bit like Jack's Beanstalk! It has little orangey pink flowers little orangey pink flowers.

Anyone any ideas?    Thank you.

Strawberry pot

Thanks everyone for your replies today. I've come to the conclusion that these pots aren't really all that good for strawberries so I think I'll put some herbs or maybe aubretia as "Fairygirl" suggested.  Thanks again.

I have a conventional strawberry pot - "like a chimney with holes in!" I have had no success whatsoever with strawberrys over the years. I dont seem to manage to plant them in properly and when I water them the water just pours out of the holes taking all the soil with it. I'd like some tips on how to manage please.  Also, is there another plant/plants I could grow in that type of pot? Thank you.

Rose Trees

I want to get two standard rose trees in memory of my late husband. One I have already bought ("Precious" Love") and I am looking for another suitably named. The thing is, I have no idea of how to look after them, I have been told they can be moved around but not sure if they will need putting into another container. Also how should they be looked after generally.  The one I have, already has three more buds on which I believe is the second flowering. Can anyone give me some information on how I should care for them?  Many thanks.

PS: This is the second time of asking. I think the other post has got lost, or I'm not doing it right

Thanks everyone, some good tips there. Love the adjectives "flicky and pingy" as that's exatly what it's like. (good title for a comedy duo ) I'm thinking it'll be down to good old elbow grease in the end - thanks again for all the tips.

Water Feature

I removed an old, unused "Lion Type" resin water feature from the wall. As well as the slugs and snails and slime it had accumulated over the past few years, in the back remained what  can only describe as a thick watery sludge which stinks to high heaven.  I know in the past my son used to hose it down with a fast jet of water, but I don't fancy doing that.  I was going to throw it out but I 'm sure it could look very pretty and usable again. Can anyone help with suggestion for cleaning. The cleaning I will be able to cope with - it's just that sickeninng smell!   Thanks everyone.
