Ok I've been busy while you lot have been rabbiting. Shredded the philadelphus and viburnum I murdered, and big bits of hawthorn. Fed OH  and made coffee.

Now I've just got to gather up all the little bits of hawthorn and shred those.

kef and Dove...

You've had too much sun. polishing parquet floors and ironing.... !!!!!!!!

Lie down in a darkened room until the feeling passes. Drink plenty. Nearly pimms o clock


It's ok Fidget - I haven't done the parquet - I couldn't lift the polisher over the piles of stuff in the garage - OH will have to help me at the weekend.  I've been potting on plants instead, and been out and bought wine - now my feet are up for a few mins before I make a ragu for spag bol.   Is that ok? 

Leggy Roses, how to resolve

Hi Louise 

Do you prune these roses each year?  If so, how hard?

I did not keepthe label

They're hardy perennials - best planted in mixed border in sun or semi shade in soil that stays moist but not boggy.  Some varieties can get a bit rampant.  We can try to work out which one your is when it flowers.

Mike - can I suggest that you contact the Editor of the journal and check out the credentials of the person who's contacted you.   The journal will have a website with contact details. 

There have been instances in the past of forum members being contacted by people who have unpleasant intentions.
