Rooting Rose cuttings?

Posted: 04/04/2013 at 16:26

I took a cutting (when pruning) from a rose back in January (when the weather was warmer). Its been in my coldframe ever since and is now sprouting really well. Its got a full side shoot which was just a bud when potted up. I hope its the same as the rose it was taken from.

On another note,

I bought a standard rose today and just for clarification, I should plant it now?

Does anyone know an easy way to spot the difference between foxgloves and comfrey?

 This photo is one I took this morning (before it started snowing). One is a foxglove and the other is a comfrey. I know which one of these is which (foxglove was removed from my coldframe for this picture) but in the garden I can't tell the difference.

I have to say that by comparrison the waitrose plants look like good value when compared to local garden centres.

Purples in my garden but what colour for you?

Posted: 03/04/2013 at 11:36

I am all for colour in a garden, I'm not fussed on sticking to one or a few shades.

I LOVE this sort of thing

Mines the same, the one from last year isn't showing any signs of new growth. I don't know if its dead or not. Glad I sowed some seeds from it last year.  

Is it me?
