Climbing Rose

Thanks Dorcas. The clematis and rose start together but the rose rambles right and the clematis rambles left. have tried to feed the rose above and below my window. The clematis lives over the porch, and yes this is quite healthy. 

If I remove the spindly stems and black spot leaves the rose will be bare.

Hi Forum, Help needed yet again. Three years ago I moved into my cottage and a lovely climbing rose was over the door with a clematis running through it. I have dutifully fed it with rose fertiliser twice a year but this year the rose is in terrible condition. The leaves are small, about the size of your little finger nail, spindly branches and covered with a sticky residue and black spots on the leaves. I think I am killing it. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks Crazy Cat, I have only grown them outside, and their netted, pigeons seem to like my garden so I don't want to invite them onto the veg patch. I will try to remember to keep the plant leaves dry, do I feed them or is a manure fed veg path enough?

Dear Forum, I have just planted another 'hopeful' packed of pea seeds. I have tried to successfully produce the peas for 3 years now but always end up putting them in the bin due to powdery white mildew. I have grown them in different places and in pots but they always end up the same. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Forum, I have had this plant turn up in my garden this season. The leaves looked interesting so I just let it grow. It has now flowered and its lovely, I would like to know if anyone can give it a name?

No deer anywhere around, although it would have been the perfect answer. I have 6ft gates at the back garden and a main road to the front. I thought pigeons but they have not shown an interest in tree climbing yet as they have food at ground level.

I have a green stem one too, I wait till the stems are about an inch thick and pick them. Wonderfull.

Hi Forum,

I have a lovely young honeysuckle which I am training around a tree. All was well untill tonight and I have come home to find the tops eaten, the string around the tree that it was growing up is broken, branches bent over and a rose that is growing next to it has the blooms all droopy. Any ideas?
