Morning Clari - it was hot and sticky last night - I was tossing and turning and having a drink of water all night 

Yes, I used to cycle for miles and miles as a youngster - parents nowadays would have kittens!!!

 I had no idea that you had misunderstood me, you should've said.

There are loads of posts on the forum referring to Nutcutlet as Nut and it's absolutely not in my nature to make personal attacks.

I think Verdun always has first Dibs on it   I was talking to a chap from the West Country the other day who was complaining about what awful weather they have down there for gardening - makes me think that either Verdun has rose-tinted specs or has organised his own special micro-climate

Hi Lindylou 

Great advice from Hortum.  You might find this video helpful - I think it's sometimes good to see someone doing it 

Ground cover roses

I think the pegging is just a technique to encourage what would otherwise be lax an low growing roses to work as groundcover.  My understanding is that you leave the pegs there. Wire coat hangers seem a good idea - or plastic tent pegs?
