Leggy Roses, how to resolve

Posted: 11/07/2014 at 14:16

Hi Louise 

Do you prune these roses each year?  If so, how hard?

I did not keepthe label

They're hardy perennials - best planted in mixed border in sun or semi shade in soil that stays moist but not boggy.  Some varieties can get a bit rampant.  We can try to work out which one your is when it flowers.

Mike - can I suggest that you contact the Editor of the journal and check out the credentials of the person who's contacted you.   The journal will have a website with contact details. 

There have been instances in the past of forum members being contacted by people who have unpleasant intentions.

Now I'm confused - you do know that the part of the broccoli plant that we eat is the flower, don't you?  Lots and lots of little buds
