I give mine a feed of tomato food and remove any seed pods that are trying to form, then leave it alone to die down.

Climbing Rose Pruning

Posted: 22/04/2017 at 14:01

You need to train the main canes as near to the horizontal as possible - that will encourage it to send out side shoots which will carry the flowers. 

Watch the video here 

it's a really clear demonstration of what to do to get the best from your climbing roses.

Ouch! Pansy 

I've had a chicken carcass and some veg and herbs in the slow cooker all morning to make some stock ... does anyone think I'd have done better to switch the bdooly thing on?

Please remember that because of what you and your colleagues do, you're always having to prepare for the worst case scenario ...  ... while you're preparing to deal with man's inhumanity to man, the majority of the world's inhabitants go on loving their neighbour, no matter what creed or culture they may be.

Potted Snowdrops Limited Flowering

I think they'd be happier in a loam-based compost, John Innes No 3 with some added leaf mould.

I think they'd be even more happy if they were planted in the ground, with lots of leafmould - that way they can drop their seeds which will grow and give you the clumps you want.

I suspect GW was short 'cos they had to find room for the Japanese Springwatch ... it was such a glorious programme I'll forgive them 

Back from a quick dash into the city on the bus to get the right size knitting needles ... I thought I'd got every size known to knitting-kind; I have my own, plus Ma's plus Granny's ........... but I didn't have a pair of size 6s .... I do now.   

There was a man on the bus with a Donald Trump hairstyle   do you think it'll become a trend?

Right, now I have to drink coffee, put a chicken carcass in the slowcooker to turn into stock, start a chilli con carne off as OH came back from work with some free minced beef which had reached it's sell by date, then hopefully I can get on with pricking out the seedlings that I was going to do the other day when the car broke down and I was stuck in a car park waiting for the Green Flag man.  

It's been one of those weeks ...........
