Good morning all!  

Panda, Clari, Fidget, Spike and .......................... any/everyone else in need of them, here's lots of ((hugs)) for you

I've not been for my walk yet as OH had an early start this morning - there's an early delivery and it's the first day open after the re-fit - so I've said I'll leave my walk until daylight as he doesn't want me wandering around in the dark on my own when there's no one at home to notice that I've not come home 'cos I've fallen down a rabbit hole   but the sun's coming up now so I'll just finish my coffee and go ...... backsun 

Removing tree stumps and roots

Well, the heading says tree stump and roots, but the question speaks of cutting down a shrub - it's a bit confusing 

Climber rose advice wanted

March is too late for bare-rooted plants - if you can get the one you want now I'd go for it - however you might find that rose-growers are out of stock of popular bare rooted roses now - most are ordered in the autumn.   I believe that Peter Beales gave sold out of bare-root Compassion but have some plants in containers

Plant a climbing rose at least 18" away from the wall.

Good luck - let us know how you get on. 

Virulent unknown weeds

Or they may well be seeds from perennials or hardy annuals that you could grow on and plant out rather than buying more

Cannot send private messages

Posted: 09/01/2014 at 17:33

I've discovered that if I click on the person's avatar and try to message them that way all I get is an almost blank page ...... but if I click on my name in the top right hand corner of the screen and then on messages, I get the chance to send a Private Message to whoever will accept one - hope that helps 

Probably won't help you tho Lily - I know you're a Special Case

Good to see you here Pentillie - fingers crossed and very positive thoughts for your daughter.

We're fine here in East Anglia - we had our bad weather in early Dec.  Others are finding the soil a bit boggy and some have new water-gardens and paddyfields, but I don't think there's anything too bad happened to friends on this forum

No CK comes across as totally genuine to me , but that chap last night was surely performing semaphore - his gesticulations beat CK hands down - I did find that irritating.

I don't have a glasshouse but was interested in looking at the tender plants - and the home-made greenhouses were fantastic!
