Posted: Yesterday at 08:30

my little girl picked up a rosehip yesterday, we walk past a house with this rose bush, it was flowering all through winter, it looks like complicata/ superfairy/rosa canina ( sorry can't be specific!) 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

i moved a montana that had  been in deep shade, i put it in a pot and brought to our new house, it has a long woody stem which i've covered with other plants mostly but now flowers well, i moved it just after flowering time

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!)
