Ideas to assist an amatuer gardner

I'm not in your area I'm afraid, but you could try asking at your local nursery or garden centre - they may know of reputable people who would give you a quote. 

Or try asking at the nearest college to you that does horticultural courses - some of their recent college leavers may have started up their own businesses.

Good luck 

Can anyone identify this growth/ bacteria

What's HT Dove (Hybrid Tea?) if so, then I think it is.  I need to see what colour it is when the flower opens and I'll know what it's called.

Yes, Hybrid Tea - sorry

Hi, do you remember me planting my Bonica rose from Peter Beales' Classic Roses a few weeks ago?

Look at this ...

Fidget, thanks for that info - we'll see how R. purps does in the west-facing bed - if it's not happy I'll move it to the Shady Bank

If it's a climber it will keep growing up and up, and it will throw out some more long canes from the base that continue to grow up and up - if it has a flower bud on it at that height my guess is that it's an HT bush type, but stranger things have happened.  We can only wait and see

BL - I used to love doing the horses' feet, and the sheeps' and goats'  - somehow very therapeutic - I wouldn't want to do humans' feet though!!!

OL - and the fact that he's been using his card in England several times a day for the past goodness knows how long - and of course they could check his mobile phone records too!!!

And guess what!  A friend on my Foodie Forum who lives in Cyprus says the Burger King in Nicosia closed down a couple of years ago!!!  Obviously someone still has the card machine!!!!!!  Have we uncovered major international criminals??? 

Urgent Olive tree help please!
