Growing Roses

Posted: 23/06/2014 at 20:56

It's not recommended because of rose sickness. Dig a really big hole for the new plant and replace the soil with some that has not had roses in, such as veg  plot. You could also add some mycorrhizal powder on the roots to help the new rose establish.

It might be a vase from eBay.  I need more vases for sweet peas.

I tried them last year. You can put three plants in a 10 inch pot and treat like cucumbers. I thought they were a waste of time.

Well it should rain now, I've just spent 2hours watering. Everything damp and watering cans filled. I'm off to work tomorrow so early night for me.

I have to go to sorting office at 7am. Postman tried to  deliver a parcel on  Friday, but I've only just found the card. I hope it's not plants, I did put on to leave behind bins in shade.

She has the right to cut off anything crossing the boundary  and over her land. If they were overhanging then she can cut them off . She has no right to cross into your land to cut your hedge.

You are right.

If they've already died down, I would take them out and keep them and replant in September. That way you have a blank sheet to start with.

If they are snowdrops,pack them in a little compost to stop them drying out completely.

If its dry try watering it first. I have patches that set like concrete. There is a two day window between it being a quagmire when it rains and it drying out and being unable to get a fork in.  When you can, add lots of compost or FYM so that it is better next time.
