Hello Mrs Garden    Good to see you ... sounds as if you've had a radical change ... will there be a lot more light now the tree work is done?

When to move seedlings to greenhouse?

I would 

Just have some fleece ready in case of another really cold snap, but fingers crossed we'll be ok.

Sad goodbye

I love trees too GD - I grew up on a farm in a tiny hamlet both named for the ash trees which are so numerous in that area .............. when we came to look at this house and saw  there were mature ash trees in the garden (not really a big enough garden for two ash trees!) we were smitten ... we didn't look at any more houses .........

Sophie Rudd is highly intelligent and funny and happens to be transgender - she received awful online bullying when she was in the first round of UC 

but she went on to win hearts with her impassioned shriek of the right answer with just seconds to spare at the end of the second round 

She's a bit of a star! 

Monkman has also become an online legend  - UC has been the start of many outstanding careers. 

Sad goodbye

It's always sad to see  beautiful trees go ... 

Can you plant something in memory of them?

Root rot hybrid tea rose - help!

Hi kinsannie 

Sorry to hear that your rose looks poorly - especially as it's so special.  My mother died last year too.  We planted an amelanchier which will have blossom this spring - she died the day after her 92nd birthday in April.  

I think you may have pruned your rose too early - pruning stimulates new growth and new growth is soft and tender and susceptible to damage by frost and cold winds. I prune my HT roses at the end of Feb/early March, depending on the weather.

Can you post a photo of the rose on here - start by clicking on the camera icon - if the photo doesn't upload you may need to reduce it in size.
