Hi Daniel -thanks for all the updates,  its a lot easier to be patient when you know people are busy solving the problem.

all is fine for me now - I am using an iPad.  People were experiencing different problems when this all started, depending on what device they were using.

Matty, are you on a laptop?

Talkback: How to look after roses in autumn

I agree with fidget - cut down any tall growth in autumn ( by about a third) to stop wind rock, then prune properly in about March, avoiding very frosty periods. I then feed with potash in March and mulch with manure, then feed with rose food end April and again in June.

Morning - still on my course, but get released at 5.30 this evening. Haven't had time to make my weekend garden list yet, but i think it will involve mounting the first in a wave of offensives against the weeds which are lurking in my borders. Best tackle it in stages i think.

Enjoy Malvern Woody !!

Daniel ( forum editor) has posted on another thread that the problems are being caused by cache difficulties ( sounds painful) and they are working on a fix.

Meanwhile, keep on with the refresh button!
