G'day Pat 

We're thinking of taking a trip up to the North Norfolk Coast today - the wildfowl and waders are beginning to arrive from the far north and Siberia for the winter. 

Must find my binoculars.

Hosta - I bet your bonfire looked amazing from across your valley

Wills - this is a picture of a mature Paul Noel rambler 

You'll see that it needs some type of support structure.

OH has just phoned to ask if he should bring a big tub of locally made luxury ice cream home with him?

Of course he should!!!

Verdun   I suggested adding topsoil as Wills said that the bed he's planting the rose in was built 'on an old car park'  and he has added MPC and manure - from that I understood that there was little or no soil in the bed.  Perhaps I've misunderstood.

Planting hole

Posted: 15/10/2016 at 16:14

Current thinking is that when planting a shrub or tree it is better not to prepare too large a hole, as this doesn't give the plant something firm to root into and consequently the shrub may be unstable and rock, causing water to settle around the roots and then freeze in the winter and cause damage.
