The crux is in the national chain bit verdun, most people pull chains, that's why real gardeners don't use them other than for cheap compost. I use nurseries and have two very good local ones, one nationally recognised, although they do fall on their faces every now and then with some of their employees.

White patches were probably caused by the sun scorching the leaves before it was packed and dispatched. Wouldn't worry if it's growing away.

Plant ID please guys

Seeding after scarifying / cutting etc

You can cut after sowing seed, just cut higher than normal. as for scarifying out the moss, leave it for at least two weeks to give it plenty of time to work.

Any ideas on these two plants?

Climbing rose - Tilehung wall

You can do a frame with masonry nails which you should be able to fit through the gaps in the tiles, just make sure they're 4 inch. you may get away with the galvanised hammer in anchors as well, just depends how close the tiles are fixed.

Plants for dry areas

Cistus do very well in my garden which has a very dry sunny slope as do helianthemum, and Lupins, plus penstemons achillea's and even some roses will do well.

Then and Now.....

Garden Hose

If your outside tap has a screw thread, those hoses will fit them. It won't connect to a kitchen tap.
