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.

Raising Cedar Crown - Advice Please!

It's what I'd do - and then plant something that will enhance your garden

I'll say no thanks to that Bekkie if that's ok with you - I'll get a stern look from OH when he gets home - according to him I'm not supposed to clean windows since I put my back out cleaning them 3 days before daughter's wedding   spent the day high on painkillers

We'll need a pic of the caterpillar

We'll be expecting great things from you now Woody

Windows in sitting room and dining room cleaned - now I have the plantation-type blinds on the big windows to clean

Help - screening shrubs

Are they euonymous?   They look ok to me, but they'll not grow tall enough to screen the view of that extension without some support - a trellis or similar.

I've just been out and removed some of the hornwort from the pond and left it on the side for the critters to return home.  I've also chopped back the vinca major as it had ideas about Little Wilderness which didn't conform with mine - It's fine if you keep the upper hand, but if you let it ramble on it will ramble on and on and on. 

I've made a cottage pie for supper this evening and am just going to have a light lunch - then the sitting room needs dusting, hoovering and the windows need cleaning - think I'll get OH to mow the lawns tomorrow

I agree with Nut, Yvie and Welshonion - it's out of all proportion to it's surroundings and it's going  to get bigger and bigger.  When I saw the first photo I was quite shocked.  Whatever you do to is is going to cost money - I would bite the bullet now and have it taken out and the stump removed.  There are so many lovely trees you could plant that will enhance rather than overshadow your garden.

sorry who is this?

I tried to remove everyone from my ignored list but they won't go. It doesn't matter, they were mostly advertisers and WUMS and aren't about now anyway. But if I do ignore anyone by mistake I won't get them back

I delete them and they disappear, but when I look next time , they're back.

 

I think if they've been barred by the Mods then they show up on our ignored list and we can't get rid of them - whereas if we've Ignored them ourselves then we can un-Ignore them

Hi folks just popping in on OH's laptop   I do keep up with what's going on using son's iPad, but for some reason it won't let me log in here so I have to read and keep my thoughts to myself

Glad your mum's not too bad Lesley - parents are such a worry - children too

What I need to know is, when will this lovely sunshine dry the lawn out so I can mow it?
