Hi Stuart - good to 'meet' you

Should i remove or leave young growth on bareroot rose

Hi C3k

They've got to get some good root growth established before that can support new top growth ............ I know it's hard but the most useful thing a gardener can cultivate is patience

Good morning all   G'day Pat

Sorry for going AWOL yesterday - bit of a family crisis over in Lincs yesterday so I shot over there to rescue OH's niece (almost 14 ) and she'll stay with us for 'a few days' ................ Meanwhile Ma continues slipping down that slope - I saw her GP yesterday who says 'not long, but who knows how long' so will just keep going over to see her as often as I can ...

OH is being wonderful, as are my son and of course, the Wonderful Wonky ((hugs)).  So glad we had that lovely day together on Thursday - set me up for the next few days

I may not be around quite so much for a few days but don't worry ...

I'm not having Brenda's problem, but I have noticed that the new competition forms don't automatically populate as the old ones did.

Is that intentional?  It was very handy

Wonky ((hugs)) 

Choose just one ...

Hosta - I'll give you a ((hug)) on Wonky's behalf think she'd better keep her hostas in pots on her terrace - her garden is home to many happy slugs and snails

The Hosta Fireworks that I bought yesterday had only just been potted after splitting and apparently it's a 'slow grower' , but be patient and keep a space for one in your patch when mine is big enough to split

Hosta, I think you replied to a message I was editing .... sorry   I realised that I entered a comp for a similar greenhouse a while back, but this does seem to be a new competition - I've entered it just now

Brenda - will this one do ?
