..I'm fixed....with I said,  but thanks anyway... others might be interested in that..  I suppose I had better do one of these....

..ok..just to update for information purposes... I've just installed Adblock Plus on Internet Explorer and now the problem has disappeared on this browser... so if anyone is unable to post but reading this, I recommend you install Adblock Plus on whichever browser you are using, and it should resolve the problem...'s free and easy to install...and safe...

..which web browser are you using?... I use both IE and Mozilla at different times, but with Mozilla I also have adblock...I suspected the advert might be causing a problem as I don't have adblock with IE at the moment so I see it on there...and it's with IE that the problem occurs...and cannot post using that browser.... but no problems with Mozilla...

..whatever they are looking at...they should be made aware of this difference I think...

..or perhaps I don't suppose they really want people to use adblock...

..the problem is nothing to do with your settings, and there is no need to change any of them I think... in fact you should stick with 'advanced editor'...however, the problem is caused by an issue with Internet Explorer... anyone using this browser will have problems will not be able to put a 'cursor' in the box to type nor will you have any options like smilies etc..

...if you use another browser such as Mozilla Firefox, and I expect Chrome... then the problem will disappear....

..I should add that this problem exists with all versions of IE from 9 to 11...

incidentally, do you know if your roses were sent to you mail order from the British Roses web site? - part of Rumwood nurseries -...just wondered...

Hello.. northern New...Hampshire...?? or New Mexico...? time to divide these is in you might expect..depending on your conditions..obviously when it's starting to warm up a bit...

...yes  you dig up the whole plant and chop it in half.... you might get another division from it... they do need really well drained conditions if you suffer cold winters...full sun...with some moisture in summer... I won't be letting mine dry out too much..

Growing Roses

.well,'s usually cultural conditions that cause these things...the rose looked fine in the first seems that since it's been planted that this has occurred... so I don't think it can be a problem with the rose or Austin's in any way.... did you manage to contain all the rootball when you took it out of the pot?...sometimes the compost can fall away and this can be the result.... and I take it there hasn't been any weed killer spraying going on in the vicinity..?

...but you are not alone in can happen to any of us...I planted an Austin about a month ago...I have had to water it regularly every since, despite the occasional heavy shower which is useless at this time of year...

...despite this, today I had to cut off some wilting flower buds which had faded due to lack of water... it happens at this time of year with newly planted Austin's because their flowers are usually so full of petals... it takes a lot of moisture to keep them going and stop the stems from flopping... I should give it 2 gallon every day until it's established...

..I'm sure yours will recover in time...but container grown roses can be tricky subjects to get established at this time of year... don't lose heart..
