Rose recommendations - help please

Posted: 09/09/2013 at 12:52

I know a lot of people who've planted things in memory of their loved ones. And I don't think it matters if its a plant, or a bench, or whatever. If that's what comforts you and brings you a little bit of piece and the ability to smile when remembering, none of it can wrong can it. That's what I think anyway.

Autumn colour

Lovely pics Marion, for colour, Autumn is absolutely my favourite season, just heavenly. I could rave on for hours on end about the reds and the golds and the russetts and the oranges and the browns

Sorry to hear about your son Diddy, must have been very tough times for you all. But what a wonderful idea to grow something in his memory he must be the first thing you think about when you look at it and I should think it must be comforting and lift you up when you see that beautiful bloom of roses.

Gorgeous looking flowers, and what a beautiful garden you have.

No GW tonight so watch this

Oh why no Gardeners World? It wasn't on last week cos of something or other. Grrr.

I'm happy to see the rain because ...

Its been raining here solidly since 6 am (give or take the odd let up for the odd half hour). Not sure what its going to do for the rest of the afternoon, its still very cloudy but oh so humid and the cloud cover doesn't look as water laden as it did before. I could also use a great big downpour of water for the same reasons, have a couple of areas I need to dig but there aint no getting a fork through that lot right now its solid. Rain dances anyone?!  

Should I cut down peony plants

Posted: 04/09/2013 at 15:07

See me on here with my sad face on next year Lulu probably cos it wont work and I'll just have a splodge where the peony plant was this year!  That said I've been fairly harsh with a lot of things without to be honest any real knowledge or understanding of what I'm doing (novice gardner) but nothing has died yet or looks like it won't grow again. Just went for it on the basis that flowers seem to like to grow again and whatever seemed like common sense. I've asked for advice on some things but I'm such a novice I'd be on here morning, noon and night saying help so I'm taking the bull by the horns with a lot and just praying!

Should I cut down peony plants

Posted: 04/09/2013 at 14:39

Wasn't sure what to do with mine so I've left them. I'm gonna start chopping now Stacey, I did get some gorgeous flowers from mine but not too many so if a drastic cut down does the job i'm there, I'd love to get an abundance of flowers from mine next year. Here goes....

Daintiness that must be really annoying. My keyboard at work is working just fine but my keyboard at home is driving me insane, I'll be happily typing away and then the cursor will suddenly jump off somewhere and either type in the middle of what i've already written 5 lines up, or it'll take me off to another page altogether. grrr. sometimes technology sucks
