the pampas grass are quite tall. I only need a couple for my front garden, so I have quite a lot spare. Lyn and Gran, if you would like some, please pm me...

Growing Roses

Hi David, they are lovely, aren't they? They are advertised as Harkness roses. To be honest, I have not heard of them before. It is comforting to hear that they are one of the top players in the field.

'Carris' was a free gift. Suttons have a offer on at the moment - buy 3 bare root roses and get 'Carris' for free. the rest are £8.99 each. I got carried away and bought four...

I think my favourite colour for roses is pink. wait a minute, maybe yellow... particularly the ones with a strong tea scent. so refreshing and divine. 

Would love to get the Scepter'd Isle from David Austin. Do they sometimes have offers on?

inspired by this thread, I have ordered 5 bare root roses from Sutton this weekend! :

Claire Marshall, Janeen, L'aimant, Times Past and Carris

Does anyone grow them?

 I have always loved roses, can't wait to receive them in November! such a long wait... I am very new to gardening, so I will have a lot of questions for your experts here in the future.

Mine have never died back. They are house plant variety. They lived on a shady windowsill until April then I put them in a shady corner in the garden. There are no flowers but new leaves keep on coming. Is this a problem?

Hi Gardeningfantic, I think he was talking about the filming of the BBC series - Around the World in 80 Gardens. I watched these on BBC iPlayer earlier this year. I am not sure when they were first broadcasted though... sorry  They might not be on the iPlayer anymore. You can try Youtube. I have watched a lot of gardening programmes on there too!

Mines are just beginning to show some red now. I think they will be in full glory in a couple of weeks! Im in Yorkshire.

 

 

Free Lavenders / Free Perennials

Posted: 30/06/2014 at 12:58

I have just received my 48 perennials (Coreopsis, Geum and Campanila etc). They are indeed very small but all alive and healthy enough (apart from one cell that is empty). I potted them all on on Saturday. The process was quite easy too. The plugs come off easily, no roots cut in half... If they all survive, I will be very happy.
