Too disruptive to the rest of the team to keep him.  Saw Liverpool primary schoolchildren being interviewed yesterday (bless em) saying they don't look up to him anymore. 

Out for the first 9 games of the new season could be decisive come the end of the season.

 

Tomato Plants with Acne

Edd is spot on.....'primordium' I think it's called. Similar to root veg tops having the capacity to re-root in a saucer of water......in fact, pineapples are grown using the same principle.

Salino, you obviously have knowledge & speak sense, but by any stretch of the imagination Bev has good reason too feel disappointed with her purchase. 

Bev, given the prevailing weather and the condition of your GJ, it would be highly unlikely you will over water it.

I wouldn't be satisfied with that response, Bev. Container grown roses shouldn't receive a check in growth like that.....that's the whole idea of buying & incurring the extra expense. Having said that, I'm sure a reputable company like David Austin would supply a replacement if necessary.

Growing from bare-root is the way I prefer.

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.
