Black spot

Posted: 15/08/2015 at 12:12

I've got blackspot on my roses (they're all quite old plants) What does everyone think is the best way to deal with it? I know Verdun will probably say "dig em up!" but I'm rather fond of them.

Are you eating your home grown fruit and veg yet?

Harvested the garlic (bit disappointing) they were smaller than iI expected but quite pungent. Brought in some courgettes from the poly tunnel and made courgette carbonara with some thyme leaves from the garden. Delicious!

Serious bird feeder question!

This one works very well. I hung a saucer underneath to catch the seed that the little birds drop and the squirrels eat from that and leave the feeder alone.
