I was not aware that rosehip "hairs" were harmful. I have used bruised rosehips steeped in honey as I believe it helps with arthritis. Some hairs do get included. I hope they are not harmful . Can some knowledge person please enlighten me. Thank you.
Yes, and it does very well if kept well watered. My neighbour loves it and thinks it is too expensive to buy(she is 82!!) So last year I planted four roots in some large redunant pots from my garden and they did VERY well.(I mean the rubarb) She has just picked her last lot for the year and we have covered the crowns with spent compost.....result, one very happy young lady. So do try it and good luck!
Thank the Lord(as my Jamacian friend would say...) I thought I was odd, missing a mere dog in a gardening show.......what's wrong with watching MD(I mean, what he is doing!
Nice to be with kindred spirit
Hey, did anyone else miss Nigel in GW on Friday? Too cold and damp I suppose!
Or.....is MD feeling threatened.....
Why Flowering rose?. jekka herbs sell plants at exhobatant prices. Where did they get them from? M y friend has them in her garden and can't get enough of them. As you say, they are lovely with dainty white clusters in early spring and the leaves taste heavenly in peso for pasta as they are not too strong. Besides, they plug a gap for garlic as the real garlic bulbs are not ready till the summer.The leaves freeze well too. I would love to grow my own instead of robing the wild.
Does anyone grow wild garlic please?
Thank you , as usual I couldn't see for looking !!
Too much hassle to over winter I think, but I do start them off in January as they need a long growing period. However, when frost threatens I do move my plants into a leanto so I can still pick fresh chillies. Once the leaves start falling I cut the stem from the base and hang it to dry and store the chillies when they are throughlly dry.
Reading about how to bookmark reminded me, can I "spellcheck" on forum please? Thank you.
You are a star Dove, I have several holly trees and if the wood pigeons are generous enough to leave some of the berries, it is such a pleasure to see the redwings visit en mass! I also store windfall fruit and bring it out in late winter and see some unusual visitors feast on them! I am surrounded by "young " neighbours who think I am odd as I also collect crab apple windfall from the trees along my road! I buy lard to put on the bird table(the squirrels carry off the fat balls but leave them alone!) The idea of oats is great. Thank you.
