Growing Roses

Posted: 01/07/2014 at 14:13

hi Yviestevie.... those are lovely roses you have...I've grown a few in the past..currently have Mortimer Sackler...a rose that blends so well with Clematis 'Niobe'...I find... but if you want another rose then perhaps William Shakespeare 2000, might be suitable..there is a photo posted of it already on this thread, by Busy Lizzie I think...few pages back... this one sounds as though it's one of Austin's best so far...from the accounts I've read... don't have it myself...

Plant. ID please!

..I think you mean Fremontodendron... might be that...stems should be bristly which they appear to be...

Moving Plants

..a few days ago I dug up and replanted a Clematis viticella 'Kermesina'... as it was in the wrong place...strangely, it just needed moving about 3 feet to the left... it had been in the ground 2 years... I got a good rootball with it, and kept all the top growth for now... and with all the rain we had's still in full leaf and hanging on there... in its new home... it was also very well watered in - i.e. soaked...soaked...and soaked...with the hose before mulching...

..I should add, I agree with Fleurisa about the best time for moving...but we have to do what we have to do when it suits us...and take a chance with breaking the rules occasionally...

Red Dog Rose

Posted: 30/06/2014 at 13:18 might be interested in either 'Greenmantle' or 'Meg Merrilees'....both these are more cherry red in colour and are hybrids of Rosa Eglanteria...the Sweet Briar... which is similar to Canina...

..I think one thing America is good at, is carving roads into mountainsides so we can drive up them.... if Ben Nevis was over there, I'm sure we could just drive up it by now...

here are some photos of photos, first taken about 15 years ago , so excuse the quality....

first one, somewhere on the Montana/Wyoming border... high above the tree line


from top of Scott's Bluff...overlooking the North Platte River valley...a quite exciting drive to the top...through all sorts of fascinating geological shapes...


..view from the other side... there's a town down there somewhere..


..Bison, in the Yellowstone National Park with Campanula rotundifolia...
