Clematis for a dry bank

They don't like being dry,unless you are going to water them every day and the toughest would be a montania but I think its not the right spot.

don't over water and water only when dry and yes I have grown them from seed and they are very good to keep going by picking the leaves regularly (when in the garden).

agree with you on that,  and could all those people on bikes wear something nice and bright (not black) at night plus lights and if they could would they decide which they are going to ride on as in pavement or road and not jump the lights and if when I am out walking on the pavement would they mind not bumping into me and if so could they use a bell.

Rose problems

looks like it could do with pruning those dead bits out and cut back and some well rotted horse manure and good watering but it must be said that some old roses have gone beyond there sell by date and to that I would say take some cuttings.

Can you see what it is yet?

well that's re-cycling and it looks good too! I or rather my husband has made some very nice raised beds from re-cycled decking found in  a skip and made 6 good sized raised beds.

How many?

The thing about 5 a day veg and fruit was thought up by  a nutritionist to get people to eat more.it was not so much how much, but getting people to fit a bit more into their diet instead of the rubbish they eat and so her clever way of making phrase work for people to eat more sensible caught on and is used and said everywhere.
