Dead-heading roses

Posted: 27/07/2016 at 09:29

I have heard the 5-leaved thing, but I don't follow it .......... I deadhead to the next leaf down  unless that leaf is looking weakly, discoloured or stuff like that and in that case I go down a bit further.


As has been said, this is dead-heading, not pruning ........ but there's no harm in cutting out stuff that's not looking good at the same time.

Morning Clari, Hosta and Chicky


Hmmm - the Met Office is promising some showers ...... well the water butts are empty - they can fill up while I'm playing tennis so that'll be good ... and then it is promising a sunny evening .... so we can have our planned picnic on the beach .... sounds good to me

Yes, I agree with Nutcutlet  it's Filipendual vulgaris aka Dropwort  - a wild plant, but a pretty one. 

horrible little fox

We see foxes most times we look out of the bedroom window between midnight and sunup. Sometimes they wake us with their noisy barking. They're nothing to worry about unless you keep poultry or small furry animals as pets in your garden.
