Just had an hour sitting out in the shade on the terrace .....  lovely to have a change of view and to see my plants ...... foxgloves all coming out, and roses and .............. well, everything!!! 

OH is getting ready to pop back to the shop to make sure everything's ok for tomorrow, cash up and lock up so I've been put back on the sofa 

etoile de hollande issues

Posted: Yesterday at 15:10

I have found that Etoile de Hollande does have rather stiff and brittle growth ... I discovered that it was best to tie in the shoots when they were very young and pliable ... it does mean that you're tying them in very frequently and sometimes when they're only a few inches long, but it is a beautiful rose and worth a bit of extra trouble.  

I hope that helps 

Barely started and I'm already overwhelmed!

There's no hard and fast rule re the shade thing ... for some plants a lot depends on moisture levels in the soil too, but this may give you a handle on it

BL, you've got to give them time to accumulate and develop to their full potential 

summer/ winter pots replace soil or not?

I wouldn't ... you'd run the risk of vine weevil grubs making themselves at home in there and you not noticing ...

Oh Rb ... what a horrid thing to happen ... I hope things settle down soon ... so unnerving!  It does make you feel vulnerable doesn't it.

Have you thought of getting one of these 

The noise they make'll soon put the wind up 'em
