Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Verdin ((hugs)) as others have said there are a lot of changes happening for your mother just now and as her ability to reason things out is waning it will be very confusing and frightening for her. Once she is somewhere with consistent routines and also where she is occupied I'm sure she will settle.

lily, hope your friend continues to improve, and also hope that Gran's worries turn out to be not too worrying, if you get mY meaning. 

Rose propagation help

Sometimes they look dead as doornails, but then in the spring they grow leaves. Hardwood cuttings take quite a while to strike

Hopefully they'll have a contact email address as you don't wish to discuss dogs

Rose propagation help

I put rose cuttings in a slit trench in gritty soil and leave them outside for 12 to 18 months. No protection, just make sure they don't dry out in the summer

Who does the fence belong to? It is illegal to grow anything on a fence owned by someone else, even on the side facing your property, without the owners permission. 

If the fence us yours, or if your neighbours agree, I find  Clematis alpina are very successful grown on wires against a fence
