Mature Roses

Posted: 17/10/2014 at 22:23

You can renovate old roses. You do risk losing them, but if your'e prepared to replace them it's worth giving it a go. Cut them back hard to 6 to 8 inches from the ground. Then feed mulch and water them. I'd leave it till spring just before they come into growth, as the coming winter is forecast to be quite cold. Enjoy the display for now.

Spring tulips and daffodils in my strawberry beds?

Shouldn't be a problem, bulbs are planted deeper and strawberries are shallow rooted.

 

 

Ladybirds

Ladybirds gather at this time of year, it's the start of the hibernation process. Once they find a suitable place to hibernate, they all migrate to that spot. It's a team effort to find a good spot, it's an example of group co-operation to benefit the species.

Anyone know what this is please?

It's NOT echeveria as others have said, I blew up your picture on photoshop and my first ID was correct.

help please as regards my dog

Posted: 16/10/2014 at 23:15

I had spaniels and the side of the mouth right at the back where the lips meet, inject it slowly. Once they get used to it the dog will be no trouble especially if there is a treat afterwards. Dogs will lick their lips furiously when taking liquid down but as I say once they realize it's a game with a treat at the end they love it.

Need help identifying (and saving) this small plant

Posted: 15/10/2014 at 10:49

It could be one of the tradescantia's, one of the indoor varieties. It certainly rings a bell, but for the life of me I can't remember at the moment. I seem to remember having one like this, but it was years ago.

Anyone know what this is please?
