Rose hips

The main purpose of dead-heading is to encourage repeat flowering roses to produce more blooms. 

At this time of year that's unlikely to happen, so I would leave the hips on the bush to feed the birds in the winter

Climber needed for a very narrow sunny spot - is it really possible?

I think that a plant and possibly trellis there is going to give an intruder something to get a toe-hold in rather than deter him/her. 

I think a plain wall is more of a barrier/deterrent if there isn't room for something with really spikey thorns like pyracantha.

Veg patch raked over and two double rows of broad beans Aquadulce Claudia sown and covered with chicken wire to stop any visiting cats from scratching them up.  Mind you, the neighbour's cats haven't been around much lately   Famous last words?

I've also planted some Rip van Winkle daffodil bulbs - they're very similar to some that were in the vegetable garden at the farm when I was a child and I'm very fond of their dishevelled appearance

I don't buy council compost for that very reason Verdun - I don't have any really problem weeds in this garden, and I aim for it to stay that way.

Good morning to all that have arrived so far

I shall be off in a minute taking the car back to the garage so they can fit a new seat sensor - despite Pdoc's diagnosis that the problem has occured because I'm not heavy enough to trigger it

I usually wrap my good pots in bubble-wrap and raise them off the ground on bricks or pot feet so that they drain properly and don't fill with water and freeze solid.
