cutting problems

Posted: 13/03/2016 at 19:02

I've always stuck rose cuttings in a slit trench as Hosta says, in a quiet shady corner of the garden.  Leave them there for at least 12 months, just making sure they don't dry out in the summer.  It's what my granny did and it's what I do and it's worked for us.

I've known whitefly on greenhouse plants but not outside ... but if that's what you've got I'd use Bayer Organic Bug Free spray which I've found works well on greenhouse plants.

And think big sweeping curves, not little wiggles

Watering can issue....

It would do the job but only if you're made of money - you can buy 5 litre cans of white vinegar (not white wine vinegar) for around £12  on Amazon.   Use it for cleaning your windows, descaling your taps etc.  Order something else for £8 and get free delivery.

And don't leave water in the watering cans then the slime won't build up.
