It's not that I'm going off Topic but I haven't had one for years, only seem to be able to buy Marathons.

Rose Cuttings Question

Posted: 29/08/2012 at 17:55

I have saved the advice from  Paul N on taking rose cuttings in my favourites bar. He is really good. I have taken a cutting, well, it was a piece that was broken off in the winds and mine also has lost its leaves at the top but it seems to be hanging in there. I am definately going to have a go at some more.

I love reading all the comments that people leave, and like Penninepetal says you don't always stay on the same topic when having face to face conversation. I just think it is a shame some get so cross about such trivial things, life too short. Try and smile more.

My Lavender freebies are really growing well, growing into nice bushy plants. Like you happymarion I will be over wintering them and plant them out next spring, that should get the bee's buzzing next year.

Beware combustible compost

So sorry honeysuckle2 to hear about your greenhouse. It doesn't matter how it started, how upsetting for you and loosing all your cuttings. I know what its like to have your greenhouse damaged, I had someone jump through mine and bend all the frame and broke the glass (they were running from the police) while we were away on holiday, I was so upset but my lovely husband managed to put it right. I hope you can replace your greenhouse soon. Good luck

I have noticed the same problem Geoff, very slow to load on occasions and also the  E-mail notifications have come to stop.

Talkback: Where are the ladybirds?

Posted: 20/08/2012 at 18:53
I am also infested with greenfly, and haven't seen any ladybirds either. My sweetpea have been covered in them and my runner beans covered in blackfly. I have sprayed with soapy water but to no avail, they just keep on coming. I would rather not have sweetpeas to pick than to spray them with pesticides.
If you get any ladybirds please send some my way.

What a great series!

Hi everyone, thank you for your answers, David, I'm sorry I didn't know about your thread    Leggi, I have used soap spray and it hasn't shifted the little devils at all. Hollie-Hock, I too have given up bringing them into the house because of the greenfly and this time I am going to do Autumn sowings, these were spring sowings. Hopefully next year will be brilliant for sweetpeas. Thank you everyone.
