very old rose

I'd recommend removing dead bits, dead bits are where diseases get in and spread

Are these rose suckers?

Posted: 03/09/2016 at 17:05

suckers have to come from below the graft, wherever it is. 

Plant/tree ID please

probably easier to keep in check than a honeysuckle

With most willows if you stick a hardwood cutting, any lump of willow, any diameter, in the ground this side of winter you have a rooted plant coming into leaf in spring. This probably doesn't apply to weaker willows like 'Flamingo'

You could probably get a lot cheaper on ebay plants

Iris rhizome or plant?

Posted: 03/09/2016 at 15:34

I've never seen loose rhizomes for sale in the way that bulbs are sold, always in pots. In pots any time is the right time to buy them. They've always got live roots (unlike bulbs which have a dormant season with no active roots)


Yours aren't sibirica, 


There are hundreds of different bearded irises, yours will be one of them I'm sure.


Kelways have some nice ones, bit pricey. and Seagate Irises

Iris sibirica don't have rhizomes like bearded iris, they have roots that can be divided. But don't try and break them up into very small divisions or they'll take ages to get going again. 


£4 doesn't sound too bad to me or wait and buy them in growth in spring.

That's beautiful Fairy. If mine looked like that I would be overjoyed. 


You learn what the local soil and conditions are like over the years, I wouldn't choose a rowan for my patch now.

Rowans always look much better up your way than they do here Fairy. I haven't got brown berries but plenty of brown leaves. Our soil is very dry and rainfall is very low most years, not so low this year and the rowan is better than usual. Berries have usually gone (eaten before ripe or dropped off) by now.
