Broken rose

If you have plenty of other shoots, I would not worry.

Make sure the damaged stem is cut neatly with a slanted cut, which means that rain drops will run off.

Pruning overgrown honeysuckle

In my experience Honeysuckle can take a really radical haircut. I do mine in Spring, using absolutely no finesse at all, just hacking huge amounts of stuff off. It always seem to come back strong.

I have no yellow either. Mine are labelled up, so that I can place them better next year.

Gardening is different things to different people. I get much more pleasure from a plant I have raised from seed, or cutting. By raising lots of plants, I am happy to try them in situations which may not be ideal, and am often pleasantly surprised by the outcome. I would not be so happy to do this if I had paid a lot of money for a plant.

I do enjoy an online shop though, to buy something unusual. In winter I seem to spend a lot of time looking at plants online. It is a lovely way to spend some time, particularly with a glass of something for company.

At the moment am waiting for a consignment of bulbs to arrive, always good when they arrive.

Interesting Fidget, I have no terracotta Bishops children, but lots of luminous pink, and a fair few reds.
