Weeds vs an old rickety back

Posted: 16/02/2013 at 16:30

Was my comment not up to your standards . no rain forecast for 24 hrs and no Gale blowing  

Can I train a rambling rose over an arch?

Hello Gardening Grandma, How much shade is it total or dappled shade ,the cheep arch may not be able to support the rose as it gets more mature .

Hi Delores2 get as much of the root ball as you can ,and dig a similar hole as the root ball in the  right place sprinkle some general fertiliser and back fill removing any air pockets as you go ,and be careful of your back it will be quite heavy .

wait until you have a very still day with rain forecast in the next 24 hrs, and spray with a systemic can then cover the area with a sheet of mypex fabric and bark chippings on top of it ,or you could ask a kind neighbour to help you .

yep your right the magpie is native , but was nearly made extinct in the 19 century in Ireland that's( what I get for listening to folklore)(anti British education)  the Gray squirrel was introduced into Ireland in 1911 at a wedding party in county Longford.
