Dear nutcutlet, the new garden soil is quite heavy, should I add anything to it to stop the aubretia from getting waterlogged?

I'm moving house this week and want to take a one-year old aubretia with me which has suddenly 'taken off' this last few weeks and is now a lovely plant. No greenhouse to overwinter it.  It will go straight into the ground at the new house. Chances of survival? I live in Pennine Yorkshire. Any tips to maximise it's chances much appreciated. Thank you

Thank you Lindsay, that's really nice of you.  I'm a bit of an internet virgin and was perplexed why people would bother to reply with strange emoticons that offend, if that isn't too strong a word.  As my old Dad used to say.... if you can't say something nice , then say nowt!.... but then perhaps that is advice I should have heeded when I posted my views in the first place but my concern re the mag was for others, not just me.  Anyway, enough!  I have turned it into a saga, and I can see how nice people are from the threads....  and your reply is just lovely. It's made my day as some of the other replies quite flattened me. Too sensitive! Thank you very much.

Hello everyone, thank you very much for all the replies.  I'm new to forums and have been out gardening in the glorious weather!  Sent an email to GW and received a lovely, very prompt and very full reply outlining in detail the many differences between the subscriber mag and the off-the-shelf version.  Much reassured that we subscribers are getting more, not less, than the off-the-shelf version and looking forward to making the best of all the offers. Full marks to GW, nice to be able to say I am wrong and great to hear how much you all enjoy the mag too.  Happy gardening

Roses with no buds

Same problem. I have a David Austin climber - Mortimer Sackler - in a large pot.  Not ideal I know but no other planting option.  It flowered all last year.  Mine was allowed to dry out too much earlier this year just as it started flowering so I have put it down to stress and have loaded the pot with West+ in the hope that it will form buds.  Leaves etc healthy. Hope yours recovers

I have received my first copy of the '5 for £5' subscriber offer, and what I received is very different, and very inferior, to the Gardener's World magazine on sale in the shops, yet it is blatantly advertised in GW as a subscription to GW.  Afraid it's an example of "if an offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is".  Shame on you, GW
