Hello, I'm back looking considerably tidier  

I called in at the good butcher on the market to get some pork chops and Florence fennel for tomorrow, and then as usual I found myself taking a short cut back to the bus stop via M&S - they were having a 60% Off Sale ......... and I ended up with 3 smart/casual tops for little more than thruppence.  Perfect for our holiday    Treated myself to some perfume too

 

Rambling Rector

Posted: 17/03/2016 at 15:09

When I planted a bare root Rambling Rector it didn't do much other than grow roots the first year.  The second year it was over the roof of the coal shed; the third year we could hardly see the coal shed and was covered with blooms.

We moved away but I'm often very tempted to go back just to see what RR has done - it probably wasn't very wise to plant it in the small back garden of an inner city Victorian Terrace - I guess the back alleyway is impenetrable now

If you look at this earlier thread, it seems you're not the only one to be disappointed

- even Verdun who lives in Cornwall felt it was a let down.

It needs lots of sunlight to produce the best colour - is it in a shady spot?

I have to catch the bus into the city in a bit 'cos I have a hair appointment too - just checked my diary, it's 10 weeks since I had it cut last ... no wonder I'm looking like Worzel Gummidge
