Rose cutting rooting.

I chucked a few of my rose cuttings on the garden to keep the cat off. When i shifted them the other day i noticed that there were fresh leaves growing with some small roots also.   I've potted up three of them, will these grow into a climber ?

I bought three Poinsettia  (Princesettia)  smaller than those big red leaves ones.  The leaves did turn a reddy pink when i first had them.

I repotted them in John innes No3 because they were getting a bit big for their pots.

They look nice and healthy but stay green. Thing is will they ever turn pink again, is the soil to good for them.


Just found corms in greenhouse.

I'm a bit disapionted with the lack of scent on my sweet peas. I bought Richard and judy, Wedding day and milly, these are all susposed to be highly scented. I have some in troughs and some in the earth.

Do you think its a weather thing, when i say lack of scent, more like no scent.

Ever notice how the first sweet pea stems are very long,and gradually they get shorter in time !

Wind damage to your plants..

Anybody else been out in their gardens battening down the hatches today. I've taken down my hanging baskets, had to do a bit of tying up on the sweet peas and the grannies bonnets were taking a pounding.
