Mixed roses - ramblers, climbers, Hybrid Tea, David Austin - whatever suits my 'plan'.

There were no plants in garden so it's largish well large to me, this will be its 3rd year and I set targets - so far next year is:

an extra raised bed the only way i can grow veg in this garden

Widen jewell border

Finish fairy garden - if it ever dries out!!

Plant up family border (ie plants with names that reflect my family) thing is not all the family will grow in that position, Shady, Daughters partner has had to go in fairy garden becuse he's a rose!

Plant bulbs

Sort out front it's 

Bit like New year resolution i guess but Targets, ticked off as achieved

Somewhere I have read that parsley seed quite like frosting, any one else seen this?

Planted 14 roses during course of  year, some early spring, some in last few weeks, wish i could get around to see how they are doing.
