just looked at link u gave me... i remember  watching it.. will try yet again..but guess what..this morning went down the garden only to find my husband without my say so had cut all roses right down the stupid man..just hope now frost does`nt get in.. angry ! oh yes.. so now nothing to take cuttings of..

On the brighter side I have ordered  The Mayflower rose... with very sweet scent...

ah, it is bare rooted & will be delivered in Dec.. never had them that late so do i plant it or what... maybe in the shed for winter.. anyone know..

haisie... I read all the thread & sat here smiling.. I  reckon you should do your small pond & stick an umbrella over

OR you could get techno & build a lean to over it...

I have tried numerous times to have a small water feature since filling in the pond that I could`nt manage anymore... no matter what I land up inundated with midges so get rid of it before i get eaten to death... anyone got idea to help with this..

definately into a nice border ... I always dig a hole ready ..water hole with torn up newspapers in as it acts as feed plus holds water for awhile..then plant rose ..I always go for semi with the hotter summers we have i have found some of mine get leaves burnt...
