 Visited Wales today (beautiful weather) and couldn't help buying this pink hydrangea as I've never seen one before.

Pleased to see this thread has been welcomed, though I'm puzzled why Bev hasn't joined in so far.

I hope this thread will enable like-minded people to pool their knowledge and better our understanding of rose growing. 

For myself, I can say that in my many years of gardening I have specialised in growing & showing just two species of flowers.....those are of course sweet peas & roses.

I have grown mammoth onions and stuff like that, just for the fun of it & the competition.... but that was never a serious passion.

Good luck to the thread.....I'm really impressed by the pics I've seen so far.

Hi, Alison......I've opened a thread in 'The Potting Shed' section of the forum today for queries like  yours.

GW live. What to expect?

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.

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.
