Thanks David. Was a bit shy about posting with all you seasoned rose growers! But I'm proud of my patch!

 

Oh goodness! Absolutely no reason for you to feel this way....your contribution is just as important as anyone elses, Supernoodle and I genuinely thought your border looked beautiful.

 

I need hugs too....

Tomato problems

I have to say, I'm not a fan of growbags either......IMHO not enough compost in them to sustain three tomato plants. Tomato planters are marginally better, but not much.

So it is!  They were part of some flowers bought for me for taking care of her garden while she was on holiday.

She's a really good gardener herself, but she still tells people how lucky she is, as her garden always looks better after her hols than before.

 

Crikey, omitted to say my daughter's garden.

That's a really nice border, Supernoodle.....nothing like a red rose for lighting-up the garden.

Again he dates himself  The very first game my dad took me to see was at Stoke to see the legendary Stanley Matthews.......played until he was 50 and was never given a yellow card. Then he moved to Blackpool....but we don't want to talk about that.

Yes, I'd like to see Saurez helping Liverpool with the campaign, but sometimes the price is too high.

Tomato problems

OL - I still think any problems you have are because of conditions in your GH.

It's been quite hot recently and conditions in our GHs are akin to an oven if certain steps aren't taken.

The glass needs to be shaded, good ventilation and (as I said last night) misting during the day....although it's best that the plants are dry after sunset.

 

I need hugs too....

Just watching Argentine v Nigeria.....Saurez is good, nah, very good, but  Lionel Messi is the man.

There isn't enough adjectives in the English language to describe his brilliance......and it comes without play acting, trying to con the ref, feigning injury, or temper issues.....a credit to the game.

Wonder if he fancies Liverpool?

OL - if you do happen to look in on this thread again, I would just add that most commercial tomato feeds do already include magnesium (worth a glance at the label) therefore, extra in the form of Epsom Salts shouldn't be necessary.
