Drought

Posted: 07/06/2015 at 17:32

Yes Bob, the torential rain that spread through the east of the country earlier in the week missed us by inches. (Peterborough) I'm watering what is newly planted and holding off planting anything else til we get rain. If we don't, I'll have to pot on.

There's a new plantation of trees in the field next door. They were planted very late in the season and some look dead to me.

Dying weeping willow

Posted: 07/06/2015 at 17:09

My guess is this weeping willow is the little Kilmarnock. If it is, don't cut below the graft.

Personally, I would remove it.The chances of it ever looking beautiful are small.

I wouldn't be able to tell unless it flowered or didn't.

If it's any help mine is about 18inches tall now, but not showing any colour yet.

Nettles

You have to keep weeding and never let them seed. Nettles make a lot of seed and it's all there in the soil waiting to germinate when conditions are good. 

Old saying, 'One year's seeding makes seven year's weeding'. That is a very conservative estimate

Plants wilting :(

What are they like this morning? Plants often drop a bit in the heat of the sun.

Moyesii germinated OK Will but was much slower to come to flower. It isn't a prolific flowerer even now but my soil is not great for roses.

I'vr grown several species, moyesii, rubrfoloia, rugosa, nd something with bunches of small white flowers. R. rugosa is very quick to flower, I sowed when ripe,germinated almost immediately, flowers on a few plants by the next autumn

Named varieties of rose don't come true from seed
