Happy New Year again,
Only John and I were awake this morning when I looked in earlier.
Will do the flower count later. (It won't take long)
I've foolishly ordered 25 hedging roses,rosa rugosa. They are due to arrive Saturday. Perhaps if I send my private helicopter Verdun will give me a hand.
Step 10 in the planting instructions says, 'finish filling the planting hole with soil and any soil left over use to make a temporary berm above the perimiter of the roots'. What's a berm? Google didn't come up with an answer. I can only assume its a circular ridge of soil.
I've also ordered mycorrhizal fungus to use in the planting. It was recommended to use this but has anyone used it and found it made a difference?
