GW live. What to expect?

Posted: 04/06/2014 at 17:16

Don't visit GW Live anymore (reasons unimportant) but having regard to where you live & transport issues, I would instead visit Shrewsbury Flower Show in August.......a really good family day out with lots to see & do besides gardening.

Growing Roses

The rose (according to a survey I have read) is reckoned to be the nations favourite flower (followed by the sweet pea). So I thought perhaps it should have a place where the growing of them can be discussed.

This is the climber 'Leaping Salmon'......growing up & over my pergola.

Consider  it done, Bev.

I'll need to do it later as I'm a tad busy just now......of course, you could open it yourself if you feel inclined. I would have opened it in the 'Potting Shed' section myself.

Bev, just a thought, but the is a lot of interest out there in growing roses, so I wonder if you would like me to start a thread specifically for people like you who share the same interest.....I could do this along the lines as the one I opened for sweet pea growers.

This thread has developed & is starting to look slightly out of place on a problem page.

To further the 'poison' aspect of potatoes, It should be understood that they & tomatoes are species of the (solanaceae) deadly-nightshade family.

Bev, just wondering about something you said.  Did I pick you up correctly?  Something about watering every day?  It isn't necessary and it has been raining so much too.too much will do damage.  Some of the best gardeners never water at all apart from newly planted stuff.   And your rose is damaged by rain as others have said.

 

That's a very good point, Hester and one I would endorse.
