Rose advise

Posted: 15/04/2016 at 10:07

Hybrid teas are better planted than potted Sandra. If it's containerised it can stay there till you plan to plant it. Best position for any rose is full sun, and planting is fairly simple, big hole add some bonemeal, well rotted manure or homemade compost, sprinkle the rootball with rootgrow and plant with the union below the level of the soil. Fill in the hole and leave a depression around the plant and water with a full 2 gallon watering can. Water every 2 weeks till it's established. Keep it well watered in the summer as well. It'll flower well this year but even better in subsequent years. Oh forgot mulch it after planting.

The ones I planted last year threw up a single stem. This spring, three stems from each area. Looking forward to the scent and display.

Weed problem: Alkanet

Posted: 14/04/2016 at 19:28

To be honest rottijim roundup is very effective with alkanet, one application and its gone especially now. It won't totally disappear, the seeds hang around for ages and germinate throughout the year. But of its a serious issue and it is in one garden I look after its the best way.

Snails in pond

Snails will find a pond like birds find food. They're good for the health of a pond and it shows you have a healthy one.

Dove don't mind at all. I had a hell of a time copying it in the first place. Thanks to all that have signed so far, more the merrier, so please support it. We all moan when it's cancelled so let's do something about it.

To all my friends on this wonderful forum, please consider signing the below petition to ask the BBC to stop cancelling GW in favour of other programmes. Gardening is a passion for many more people than some of the sporting events being televised.


Natural predators

I've been in client gardens all week and the number of ladybirds out sunning themselves is more than ive seen in quite a few years. Hopefully no greenfly this year.

That's why I said big rootball Verdun. If I move one I use a garden fork. I like bowles mauve but I'm not a huge fan myself, although I grow them for clients.
