Hello Finty - is your heart set on having a rose? If not I would like to suggest a Clematis Etoile Violette. It grows very well and is easy to care for - just needs cutting back hard in spring

You made me smile discodave and bunny . I don't want anyone to feel inadequate - just because I have an obsession for taking cuttings and growing plants for my OTT front garden I just like people to know it can be done -no mystery to it

Good Morning Everyone  We ordered the plinth for our new shower - had a phonecall last night to say it will be delivered between 9.15am and 11.15 am this morning so can't go in the garden until they have been.

Have a lovely day!

Not so sure about 'expert' Kate  I just bung 'em in and hope they grow

I will be taking my Puts Folly fuchsia cuttings sometime in the next few days - I need 24 for my basket tree baskets - so I will take 48 if I can - that will give me plenty of plants to play with

Charlotte is a very good potato -we always grow them it probably gives a better yield than Vivaldi

We do like Vivaldi Lottie!
Barry has a load of manure delivered every year and alternates which beds it goes on-the potatoes will go on the bed that was manured last year and he also uses growmore or chicken pellets.
For a main crop potato Picasso is hard to beat and for a good baking potato 2nd early Marfona is great Marks and Spencer sell Marfona as baking potatoes -that is where I first tried them
