just found this photo while looking for something else & it reminded me how lovely the garden looked earlier on in the summer/late spring! Hope the same for next year as everything is a bit waterlogged & windblown now (including me)

Interesting visitor to last years Food Festival at Conwy!!

Does anyone know how to plant a rhizome for an anemone honorine jobert?

Posted: 30/10/2013 at 13:03

Hi!! I bought three honorine jobert from t & morgan back in feb this year. They've done remarkably well & are flowering nicely at the moment. They're planted in a mostly east facing bed but do get lots of sun during the summer. T&M have a video on the site showing how to plant them if thats any help Blue Rose?

Is this Japanese Knotweed

Posted: 29/10/2013 at 15:32

Hi peter keep

the old dead stuff in the last 3 pictures is definitly japanese knotweed but not 100% sure about the top one although it probably is I'm afraid. It dies down each year as you have shown & resprouts from undergound rhizomes in the spring. You will need to spray it with a strong concentration of roundup (glyphosphate) in the spring & carry on doing so as often as you can. Sorry to say it takes at least 3 years to tackle it BUT it looks as if there isnt that much in your garden so you will suceed!! We moved into our current home 2 years ago & we have our 'inherited' weed under control now but havent quite eradicated it yet - in technical terms it's a bugger to get rid of! Good luck!!!

Nice day here in conwy valley - managed to get my roses moved from their temporary summer home to their lovingly prepared new permanent bed! I know it isnt quite November, as was suggested would be the best time to move them when I asked for advice on another thread on the forum, but the weather's turning chilly & I get into a bit of bother with Arthur Itis when the temps drop!!

Retirement is great Dove ( been free now for 2 years) but I do feel guilty when OH has to leave for work at 7.30 in the cold & dark! Well, I do for a bit anyway!!! lol

Have a nice late afternoon/evening all xx

Anyone know the name of this fruiting plant...?

Posted: 28/10/2013 at 12:34

hi smokeybiker - the fruit will turn yellow as it ripens & can be left on the plant for a while. The fruit is also very hard so takes longer to cook than an apple. You can add quince to apples for apple pie/sauce, it gives an extra flavour & dimension.
