I agree with Alan - if they don't agree to that then contact your local Trading Standards officer.

not happy

Good luck

can anyone please identify those roses?

Posted: 16/09/2014 at 17:03

I think that the rose in the first pic is a climber - looking at the way it's been planted against a fence, and also looking at the way it's been pruned and how the growth has responded.  Have a look at this video on How to rejuvenate a climbing rose

http://paulzimmermanroses.com/care/pruning/rejuvenating-an-old-climbing-rose/

and have a go at it yourself - that way you should get some new growth.

Also have a look at this video which shows you how to train a climbing rose on a trellis - it shows you how to train the main canes horizontally which will encourage more flowers lower down so you can enjoy them http://paulzimmermanroses.com/gardening/training-roses/training-climbing-roses-on-a-trellis/

 

Can I grow more raspberry canes from the seeds from my raspberries?

I started with 3 canes 3 years ago - now I have a forest!

HELLO FORKERS!

Polka are well-flavoured large fruited autumn raspberries - mine are spreading throughout the veg patch!

Does anyone know what this little critter might be?

Don't know any sawflies that have purely friendly intentions, but I tend to regard them as food for the birds rather than worry about them

Think its the larva of the Pear Slug Sawfly

Hi Dove, hope the pain is easing. xx

The new splint is certainly helping - thanks Lily

Give it lots of room  

Don't let it dry out in the summer.  It can be grown in a container but it'll never produce at its full potential.
