Probably nothing. Do you know what the varieties are?

 

Rose Rosetta disease

Posted: 18/09/2014 at 13:37

I thought at first it was robins gall, caused by a wasp. However I think it looks more like weedkiller damage. Have you mulched with stable manure?

some of it is contaminated with a weed killer that causes these distortions. 

If it is either of these two, it is temporary and you do not need to dig up the rose. 

Prune out all affected parts and burn, next year the rose is likely to be OK. Use a rose feed in Spring.

When to move Salvia Amistad

I'd take some cuttings now, and then if it doesn't like the move, you have spares.

Yesterday I emailed Hayloft plants to complain about the dead phlox.

I received a bounceback saying that someone would contact me. Today I have had an email asking me how I rate the support I have received.

Answers in words of one syllable please.....

What's the star in your garden right now

I've grown that from seed this year, but its not in flower yet.  It does look like it will need staking. I'm growing it in between tree lilies. I'm hoping  the stems from the tree lilies will prop it up.

My Yucca is going to flower. The original one I dug out, it always looked awful after winter, but the root sent up shoots. This is one of those, in the sunniest spot in the garden. It obviously likes it.

Photo wont upload, I'll try again later.

Disappointed with new shed.. how far to take it.

If someone put the phone down on me, with a legitimate complaint, my next call would be to Trading Standards at the local council.
