Murraya Hedge leaves falling off

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 09:43

Hi Sharon  - I presume you're either in the US or the antipodes - Murraya isn't hardy here in the UK .  Not sure if any of the regulars on here will have grown it ....

Snowberry advice needed

It's often used to provide food and cover for pheasants etc during the autumn and winter.  It gets cut down to ground level in the very early spring and regenerates quickly forming dense undergrowth - if it's getting too dense either dig out some of the suckers, or remove the old plant and let the newer growth spread.

Morning folks!  just popping in on OH's laptop again    I have read back lots, but can't really remember who's doing what, other than KEF eating chocolate!  ((hugs)) to everyone anyway

Bit of a crisis here this morning - just before he left for work OH noticed water dripping down kitchen wall under bathroom shower!  He'd just had a shower!  Lovely Builder was going to come and re-seal bath/grouting etc when he redecorates after Ch****mas - now he's going to come later today or first thing tomorrow morning.  Hence I've just had a wash rather than a shower and my hair will have to wait until tomorrow

I was going to edge the lawns that OH mowed yesterday - not going to happen now - all wet and soggy out there too!   I couldn't do it yesterday 'cos guess what?  Remember I cleaned the windows although OH told me not to 'cos I had a bad back the last time - well, back's fine .... but yesterday my neck and shoulder were agony - heatpad and painkillers all day, and had to lie flat on my back all night 'cos it hurt to turn over.  It's a bit better this morning

Like Nut, I have faith in an Indian summer - how else is my bumper crop of tomatoes going to ripen?

Nut, we haven't forgotten about next Sunday - limited access to laptop at the moment but normal service should be resumed on Wednesday.

Clearing a garden

Oooh, what are you going to do with that?  Can we help if we behave ourselves?

HELLO FORKERS!

Just popping in to say I'm still around.  Lawns have been mowed and housework has been done, team effort by OH and myself   He'll be rewarded later, with roast belly of GOS pork with apples and sage, new pots, summer cabbage and a mustardy creamy sauce

Yvie, ((hugs)) siblings huh!  Been there - at least mine has now recognised that Ma has dementia - it's a shame that he spent two years thinking her word was gospel when she was really confused.    As Panda says, all you can do is your best, and remember it's your duty to look after yourself as well.  If you're poorly who's going to look after the rest of 'em?  ((hugs))

Looking forward to getting my new laptop on Wednesday - then I won't have to keep borrowing OH's ... and giving it back

 

Unwieldy rose bush

Posted: 24/08/2014 at 13:35

It looks to me like a neglected climber - have a look at the video on this site http://paulzimmermanroses.com/care/pruning/rejuvenating-an-old-climbing-rose/ which shows you clearly how to rejuvenate an old climbing rose.
