I'm sure you can prescribe yourself a medicinal brandy Pdoc - can you prescribe some for the rest of us  too? 

Big pot of gammon with onions, leeks, carrots etc simmering on the hob for a lovely supper tonight and a few evenings to come, and lots of stock for some soup as well.  The house smells fabulous

Pdoc, OH is probably right ... they usually are, I find  Look forward to tea and crumpets by the fire when you come back in.  

My OH is convinced I need to drive him to a local trading estate as he has something to collect ... he's probably right as well ... 

Can tomatoe diseases be transmitted to roses? (may be a stupid question)

Just keep their roots damp - not sodden - just damp - and keep them in the cool.  You don't want them to think spring has arrived so that they start growing. 

Thompson & Morgan - issues!

Aym you misunderstand me - I was referring to the fact that you and I disagree about whether you have the expertise needed to 'bring it back to life'.  I've seen photos of the plants you've grown from seed and dahlias that you've grown from tubers.  Both need more expertise than planting a bare root rose in the garden.

We did once have a photo sent in of a bare root rose that wasn't growing ... the poster had planted it upside down!    But I know that you wouldn't do that
