Good luck with them, Lily.

I'm sure you'll understand that when trying to help with these queries, all we can do is call on our experience & knowledge and accept that the answers given will not suit every situation.

Hope the above didn't sound too starchy...it wasn't intended to be.

Hi, Derek

Yes it's called 'dry set' and is common during hot dry spells....misting the plants will help.

Hi, Josie...welcome to the forum.

The fact you suggest potting-up these roses leads me to think they are not large, old bushes, which is good.

You can do this, but it will have to be done when the bushes are totally dormant, say Dec/Jan.

Large established bushes will represent a bigger a  problem.

"feeding them once a week with Miracle Gro"

You see, this is where we gardeners make mistakes and do much harm by over-feeding & over-watering.

Morning Glory is related to bindweed and by association needs impoverished soil to thrive.

Just a guess, but I would imagine too much feed has resulted in lush growth at the expense of flowers.

Same applies to nasturtiums & lots of others.

Sowing on May12th is reckoned to be about right here in the Midlands, maybe a week or so earlier further south and a week or so later further north.

I've not used it yet Yviestevie, but I understand it is fully approved by the EU for organic use.

I know babies are demanding and take up so much of your time, I'm just surprised you manage to squeeze in time for gardening at all, rosemummy.

So sorry for being such a grouch!

"Final point.....YOU ARE NOT A PRIZE TWIT!!!  You are a busy mummy with babies, there is a difference" 

Oh yes, so true.....why can't I think of sensible things to say like that?
