Its not an alpine!!!!!!

Chuckle!  No, definitely not!!!  Although I have seen self-sown ones do very well on rockeries - they like well-drained sunny spots

That sounds a lovely place to go for a push Verdun  - that's what we call it when we take my two out  - the problem is I can't take them both on my own, and Ma won't go without Pa in case  'something happens to him' when she's not there   so we can only do it when OH or son can be with me - and they're both busy men. 

That Walter Funcke is gorgeous!!!

Not scorchio here - a bit overcast - but I have a feeling it's going to be .... there's some blue sky in the west

grape problems

I agree with Bob - there's lots of growing needed underground before a grapevine gets going.

My grapevine was planted in the spring of 2012 and it's only really started to grow away this month.

Fidget - I'd love a Bud. globosa please 

Nut - please may I have a Phlomis? 


I've not got a lot to give away but if anyone would like some little Geranium Phaeum seedlings I could pot some up - just shout 

Indoor rose has no blooms

I agree with Nutcutlet - they're sold to go indoors on a bright windowsill or in a conservatory, but they don't last.  

I suggest you pop it outside - in a semi-shaded spot to start with while the leaves get used to the strength of the summer sun - and see what happens - you could even try planting it in a border if you have one. 

What is eating my redcurrants?
