Blitzing a garden rant

Nasty racist comment.

 The many Eastern Europeans I've met in the UK work hard, look after their families and have very good gardening, DIY and housekeeping skills, and are great cooks, keeping house on limited budgets, cooking from scratch and growing their own fruit and veg.

J Parkers rose delivered dead/diseased?

It's incredibly late in the season to be buying bare root roses ... mine are all in bud and many are flowering 

Help! Grapevine dying.

I suspect the same culprit as you Obelixx ... that freezing wind that blasted the UK at the beginning of the month....... not just the clematis and vitis cog. etc, but 

Can anyone identify this plant/ivy?

Yes, one of the lamiums ... pretty things ... I've planted lots in this garden 'cos it's great in shade .. yes it spreads, but that's what I want it to do ... it's easy enough to pull up if it spreads too far ... it's not a thug and it's one of the prettiest things to grow under trees. 

ID for young shrub, please.

My OH is in the garden too Pdoc ........ he's helping me move the little sentry box shed ......... well, actually I emptied it and he's levelling the ground, moving the slabs and will move it ... it's only shuffling along the fence a few feet.  I'm eating a ham sandwich and supervising ... he says he'll have poached eggs on toast in a little while.

We're going to have a Chinese takeaway this evening
