My Mystery Roses

Posted: 09/07/2013 at 16:33

Hello Salino,yes i do get a bit of black spot on some of my roses but i don't bother quite so much with spraying these roses as they are not my best or favourite rosesas they are some of my cheapies from Homebase.also it gets Aphids on them by not spraying and that helps the ladybirds,if i ever see any this year.I am very happy with my David Austin roses,and i do look after them,and they have been amazing this year,although looking around other gardens this summer,so have everyone else's.AS for those 3 roses,I am not saying I am right,far from it.I thought yours were good shouts,but just that my 3 shouts wereAlpine Sunset or Chicago Peace for the hybrid tea,warm welcome for theclimber and i think Ballerina for the bush rose.I'm probably miles off.Anyway thanks for your help.

Thanks Salino,but i think i may have worked out possibly two of them.The hybrid tea rose could be Alpine Sunset as the size and flower head seam pretty similar,and the one i've got most faith in is the climber which i'm about 90% sure is Warm Welcome because that matches all the criteria for that one.As for the last one ith the dodgy photo.Well it's only just starting to flower so i might know more next week.I may be wrong on the other two but what do you think?Any way thanks for your help.Having just checked your garden rose index they are both good shouts.

 I'm in urgent need of help.I've got nearly 30 roses in my garden and these 3 are the only ones i don't know the names of.The first one is a short climber which i bought about 10 years ago,the 2nd one is a Hybrid Tea and the last one is some kind of Bush about 4 feet high.I would be really gratefull of identifying even one of them.

Having just received my autumn catologue from Thompson and Morgan,i now know what both my lots of wallflowers are.One is Sugar Rush and the other is Most Scented and they are both  Hardy bi ennials so does this mean i throw them away at the end of the season or dig them up or chop them down to ground level.I'm sorry for bringing them back up again but now i know exactly what they are i am hoping someone can help me.

help.. plug plants

Posted: 11/06/2013 at 22:18

Darren,i have just bought some perenial plug plants from J Parkers for £4-99 for there perenial collection in which you get 2 of each of 6 varieties and although it is pot luck with what you get they are decent sized plugs and seem in decent condition.I  got  delphiniums,campanula Carpatica,Trifolium amongst others so it is worth checking out J parkers website.

Thanks nutcutlet,i'm getting confused this year with everything flowering at strange times.The erysium most scented have not even flowered yet but they have put some good growth on these last few weeks with this warm spell.The other ones have flowered quite well but now there seams a lot more foliage and a lot less flowers so i presume i have seen the best of them now.Actually they are in the way now as i would like to plant something else there now,so thanks for your advice.
