Rose propagation help

Posted: 23/09/2014 at 20:21

I put rose cuttings in a slit trench in gritty soil and leave them outside for 12 to 18 months. No protection, just make sure they don't dry out in the summer

Who does the fence belong to? It is illegal to grow anything on a fence owned by someone else, even on the side facing your property, without the owners permission. 

If the fence us yours, or if your neighbours agree, I find  Clematis alpina are very successful grown on wires against a fence

I've just arranged for son to pick me up in an hour or so and cart me off to Suffolk for a couple of days so you lot will just have to manage without me somehow 

Can you remind OH to feed Hefty and water the runner beans and squash if it stays dry?
