I think this is whererthe hip came from, it was near there... how can we best try to sow the seeds? she would be soexcited to get a rose she's grown herself

Wow GG my autumn ones look really strong and are growing well but no flowers or buds yet, I didn't think I'd d see any for maybe 3 or 4 weeks, have you fed yours? My spring sown ones seem to be growing quite slowly, don't t think I'll see flowers on those for 6 weeks

hosta couldn't agree more , i love cottage gardens but if your brief is formal... that girl seems lovely but that was not in any way a formal garden, i will watch anything about gardening, i can always learn someything so i enjoy it, i don't mind joe swift buut i wish he'd stop saying 'right?' after he's given advice ( sorry i am so picky about speech as i'm constantly trying to get my 4 year old not to get into bad habits, i even correct my husband!)
