compost dilema

I think something's been lost in translation ... from Alvina's earlier posts I gather she comes from China or Malaysia or thereabouts.

Best place to buy trees from

I would go to Orange Pippin fruit trees for the crab apple 

and their associate company Pippin trees for the rowan

They have an excellent reputation.

I remember Matty talking about it BL ... it was what made me suggest it to my young friend when she said she wanted to buy me 'a purple flower'

Hi danielletealedt 

If you're having problems uploading a photo, start with the camera icon ... if it still won't upload try reducing the size of the photo - it usually works ...

Climber or rambling rose??

Posted: 18/05/2017 at 14:16

I once lived in a terrace in a dead dodgy area ....... there was a back gate onto an alley frequented by Ne'er do wells ......... I planted a Rambling Rector against the back wall ........ best legal defence against intruders I could think of .......... I sometimes feel tempted to go back and check to see whether or not the rose has totally taken over all of the alley and the back gardens all along the street
