Well that's another lesson learnt David, 99p buckets from Morrison's for next year  To be honest, I'm not overly impressed with the tomato pot things I've bought either  We live and learn!!

 

OL - Looking at your progress overall, I'm sure you must be feeling rather smug about what you have achieved over such a short time. Sure there will be setbacks, some of us that have been at it for yonks it still have them.

Next season you will be quite the expert.

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....

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.

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.
