Growing Roses

Posted: 09/06/2014 at 22:52

Not a rose grower, I do love them though. In my grandads garden there are still roses in bloom from his parents garden, probably over 70 yrs old now

david spikes, that's an amazing photo, beautiful

Clematis Montana grow really quick if they are happy

Blue Geraniums - no flowers

Posted: 09/06/2014 at 22:27

As long as the plant looks healthy, they will flower. I got some blue geraniums off a friend and they've only just come into flower in the last few days. I think plants do their own thing

Is this a Clematis?

Sorry slow typist, short attention span and very poor internet

It's very pretty, I just liked looking at the buds...........  I'm so amazed at how the big the flowers are, I love it, they are so beautiful and so strong.  Trying to train it to grow over the shed.

I inherited this and according to them that planted it this is it's best year yet. When is the best time to do any pruning?

I've only had the Montana and the Jackamini types before

Thank you both

I wasn't sure when it was growing. I've only had the early flowering types before. The buds have been around for weeks and all of a sudden they turn in to this!

I think this is the first year that it is flowering. Very nice colour Flora

Hello everyone, this vine type plant has had some lovely buds on it for weeks, over the last couple of days it's starting to flower

It's been a lovely surprise, I love the colour and the flowers are huge and so strong. I didn't think it was a Clem at first but now I'm not sure?

Looks like it might have the beginnings of rust

Slugs.. sod the organic approach I just want them dead!

Occasionally I've used the blue pellets sparingly when a plant has been munched almost to death. Not the ideal solution but it has worked and allowed the plant to recover and survive
