Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 07/05/2013 at 19:23
Hi All,
I am always pleased with my roses, in fact one current climbing rose has over two hundred blooms on it, each year it seems to have more. However my mother in law imformed me that I should be dead heading them all, I usually do this for the bush roses but the climbers would be quite a task. Is she right?
From info from other letters I always spray regularily and fertilize well and cut back any dead growth. Wellcome any info on the dead heading. Thanks

Hi wildifewarden,
It's a known fact that all and any growth is all thanks to the root system,
When it comes to climbing rose, if you let the rose grow to high you'll have less blooms at the top as the roots are providing all it's strength in the growth rather than the bloom,

Good regular feeding and dead heading is all thats needed for a long flowering period for rose's,

I have a wistera growing all over the front of our gite, during april/may the complete front of the house is just covered with flowers from the wisteria,
as soon as it's finished flowering the complete wisteria is clipped back, and by august/september we have a second flowering. After this second flowering again the complete wisteria is again clipped ready for the winter and next springs flowering.

The point im making is dont over work the root system by allowing to much
green growth and you'll find the roots will provide more blooms,
The same goes for dead heading the rose's, remove all dead heads as you would any dead wood and the root system will only have to look after the growing parts of the plant.
Regards Punpun

night all

Hi all,
Im a little early today with the write up and ive a good reason why,
Yesterday i continued to make the path from the court-yard and 45 feet across the Lawn to the pool,
I worked most of the day removing the soil/clay from one side of the now filled in path and then later planted 90 box on the one side i'd finished "ive still the opposit side to dig out & complete before the complete job is done"

But as the day came to an end and my back was telling me its time to call it a day!
I thought i'd better give these 90 box a really good watering to help settle them in,
and by around 9pm i'd watered the box and finished for the day.

Well last night we had one hell of a storm here, Lightning and then thunder and rain like ive not heard for a long time,

It was as i lay awake at 2-30am i thought thats sods law! ive spent time watering and just listern to that rain coming down.

And this morning's been no better, "But" the water butts are all getting filled ready for the next hot spell.

Well lets hope the sun shines later today and i can do some more box prep & planting.

Till this evening, cheers.
