Mytsery Plant

I wonder how it managed to pop up outside my house :P

It is literally growing from underneath it. I'll go see if it pops up again once the weather has warmed up

Hi all, I found this growing at the side of my house around the start of April last year.

I was thinking it might be a rose but wouldnt that be too early?

Anyone have an idea of what it is?

I took the photo on April 1st 2012

I can't even grow from seed!!!!!!!

I sow into single modules and keep them on a south facing window. I spray them twice a day, once before work and then again after work. I always have pretty good results as long as I turn the trays regularly.

If the plants are more than 3 years old I would suggest either buying new plants or using the runners from the current ones to create new plants.

Strawberry Plants tend to become more prone to disease and produce less fruit after 3 years.

A good thing to do would be to shave a bit of the stem about half way up the plant, if its green then the plant is healthy and just giving it a good mulch at the base of the plant will help tremendously. Clematis love being Hot at the Top and Shaded/Damp underneath.

Sprinkling a good dose of bonemeal around the base will help a lot also.

Here in south wales snowdrops,iris and crocus have come and gone.


Daffs have just appeared around the town. Most of the flowers are still hiding though.

Alliums and Fritillaries popping up, Clematis and Honeysuckles coming into leaf.

Spring has started slowly and its still pretty cold in the night times

which Rose

I grow it in Pure compost which I add rose food  and Bonemeal too. The rose is absolutely thriving in there and gets plenty of sun all year round. I'll post a picture when it comes into bud
