Thank you. I have taken on board what you have said and now have a better understanding on this topic

Thanks - I note what you say but surely tomorite and chempack (which I have) must benefit shrubs in the ground and would be better than nothing at all'

Their are always of course instructions on mixing up feeding liquid solutions but can anyone please tell me or give me a yardsick as to how much to feed shrubs ie a gallon for a large shrub?,-, a half gallon for a small shrub?, Is it best to feed when the ground is dry or wet? and in Spring/summer (ie now?) As a general rule once a week or once a fortnight - can you overfeed? Sorry for asking these simple questions? perhaps they are of no consequence but I would pleased to have your advice

How is it best to get rid of a small patch of grass discolouration caused by a lady dog please. I have asked her not to do it but she does not take any notice. I thought of buying "get it green spray" but the reviews are not good

climbing roses

Posted: 06/04/2015 at 11:14
Because of railway sleepers standing proud about 9" on the earth against a 6 ft trellis fence it will not be possible to plant climbing roses in the ground much closer to the fence than about 18 " Will climbing roses be able to climb satisfactorily because their roots and stems will be too far away from the fence? Two of the climbing roses I have bought are golden showers and zephrin druin If climbing roses are not able/ allowed to climb do they revert back to shurb roses? Having already bought the roses this I think is my only option. I do not want to stand them on the sleepers in tubs/pots. Also can you restrict the two roses I have bought to a height of about 5 feet by keeping them pruned please

Quick growing climbing rose

I am grateful for your help but I now realise that the climbing rose might take at least 2 years to attain a reasonable height of say 6ft 6"'and I width of say 5 ft I want to get if possible a climber which will attain this height in its first year,.. the reason for this is that people can very easily look over my fence and see into the private part of my garden particularly when I do not want them to so in the summer months.(winter doesn't matter) I want a climber which is easily manageable by pruning and cut to the size I want at anytime, It can be a perennial climber or a climbing shrub which can be cut down to the base in the winter. Sorry I am a pain (believe it or not I am still married)

I want to buy a climbing rose zephrin druin. I want it to grow as quickly as possible. Should I choose the largest one I can find and apart from adding bonemeal at the time of planting is there anything else I can do to make it grow quickly please

Can anyone please help me in preventing leatherjackets getting into the lawn. I do not wish to use chemicals as I have a dog.
