That is the point all the structure is there-the grass needs cutting there is enormous buddleia and viburnum that badly need cutting back-bindweed everywhere -so if someone just did that it would make a difference-it is such a shame as the previous,previous owner did a lot of work

Jenny the slug was tossed over the fence-found another small to join it so it wont be lonely-they can feed there

Mrs Geoff used to cut the roses down but not now-the garden has shrubs but is neglected -you could get it straight in a few days.

That picture of the garden is rather deceiving-the decor is probably the same from 2 owners back-there are kids but they were not hers-I think -she now lives in Australia-it is all a bit complicated

That garden needs a lot of work- the front was the one the "gardener" "tidied" up last week -those roses are about 5/6 feet high

The garden is about the same size

Dean-what are you trying to do?

It is probably too warm-that is the problem-they don't transplant well if at all -so sowing then in a flowerpot will not work.

Sow them outside where you want them to grow -direct into the soil and thin out once they have germinated-they are a comparatively easy veg .

I think it is the thing with suckers- those usually have 7 leaves but look completly different from the rose itself and are usually stronger growing-if it starts with 7 leaves then that is the sort of rose it is.

I can show you a picture of my nasty neighbours roses-it is not very good pic- but they have not been pruned for 3/4 years yet still flower-I think people worry to much about plants full stop-they are tougher than we think
