Don't know if anyone has heard of it, but heard a good tip from a top show rose grower today, he swears by 'Uncle Tom's rose tonic'.

Anyone addicted?

Well, I'm addicted...and if I didn't purposely try to avoid the chat threads, I would be in need of therapy.

I start this thread in a light-hearted way. I wonder if any of us worry that visiting these pages is becoming a serious addiction.

When I used the (now closed) Archers' forum, people used to make no secret of the fact they would get up in the middle of the night to read messages.

One particular worried poster even visited his doctor to discuss the matter, because he was turning down (much needed) overtime at work.

Deadheading

There is definitely a correct way to deadhead and although I may be a bit slap-happy in some things I do in the garden, I do deadhead with care.

To save a lot of explanation, this RHS advice about covers it:
