I have a similar problem with a new Victoria, bit of blossom first year of planting but nothing last year or this, though it's growing well and seems healthy. I mulched with compost in Autumn, should I mulch again with some potash compost now or leave it till Autumn?

Like the festooning idea so will give that a go this weekend if I can work out how to anchor it!

Thanx all. Haven't got a parent plant myself so hardwood cuttings will suit me better. Wish me luck!

Composting, more than anything else I do as a gardener, makes me feel at one with nature and makes me happy    It's just a win-win-win situation, no waste to be taken away, no need to buy anything in and plants get just what they need

  My boy is nearly 50 but would love to contribute - but the bins are a tad exposed (and so would he be)

I water it when I'm building a compost bin - helps to kickstart the process
