Is this soil good enough for a rose?

The other problem you have is that the plant is very close to a wall and is therefore in a rain shadow. You will have to water it regularly to keep it healthy.

Flower is similar, but the plant is not right.

Sorry I don't know what it actually is though.

Hi all.

Just in from the garden, well summerhouse actually as slightly cooler.

What a fantastic day, nothing done, but managed most of the day without thinking about the mess we are in.

As you know we had to cancel japan trip, so today I have booked to go to Sicily in October. No particular reason for going there, but we do love Italian food and wine and it is supposed to be very beautiful.

Waiting for it to get a bit cooler, then I shall do some watering.

Hope OH is improving Joyce.

I am missing out on the 10 minutes of work and just doing the rest bit and very enjoyable it is too.

I agree with Bob. There was also a very cold spell at the time the buds will have been growing and this may have frosted the buds.

I have P. Sarah Bernhart and find her very fickle, some years she just decides not to perform. This year I have a single flower, but it is about 9 inches in diameter.

" Talking to God, down the great white telephone ", one of my favourite Billy Connollyisms.

Which plants would you relegate to the compost heap... for good?

Far to sweeping a statement on conifers IMO.

What about Yew, Pinus Mugo and many more, to provide structure in the borders ?

If you have the space a mature Scot's pine is magnificent..
