Rose sucker

..if you're careful you can remove the soil around the shoot, using a trowel, rather like a cat digs a pit... until you can see where it's coming from...a little rummaging is involved here but it's not difficult....if above the union then it's the rose, if below it's a sucker and you can remove it... this won't bother the rose too much...

..I wonder what you did with the old grass turves that were already there within the frames...? I would have turned them over and chopped them up.. they quickly rot down and make such good topsoil over time, and I would then not have so much to fill with compost or whatever else you use...

What to plant in the greenhouse?

Posted: 20/04/2014 at 14:13

..I sometimes grow winter salads in grow bags.. you can get winter varieties to sow from seed directly into the bags... they even survive periodic freezing and start growing again when it thaws....T and M's 'Niche Oriental Mix' is one...Sutton's 'Leaf Salad Winter Mix'..another...
