That is quite a good idea. Thanks for that.

Thanks. I'll wait until after flowering so I get the full display.

Oh good. Is the best time to do this after flowering too? Do I need to dress the wound afterwards with wax or something or just leave it?

I really need to cut off one of the main stems as it is hanging way outside the border. Would it take that or could that stress it to death?

Can you prune them quite hard? I have one that was in my garden when I moved in (There were three to start with but I gave two away) and it is starting to spill over border too much. If I would chop off the branch that is in the way, am I likey to harm the plant or will it resprout from the cut off point. My memory tells me they don't like being transplanted and dont take well to pruning. The flowers are red orange if that is of any help.

I have ten quid to squander at T&M due to them sending me the wrong plant and I need some insperation. I think the garden is norhwest facing ( I get the sun comming in about 10 in the morning and then it moves around the garden which is walled. I do like climbers and scented plants. I don't really thing I can add another climber since I have a grapevine, 4 clematis, a honeysuckle and a Zephyrine Droughin.

Any good ideas for what to squander this money on???

YES! Only problem now is that I don't really know where to plant it. Luxury problem!

Got an email from the on Monday and they are sending me a new one plus an e-voucher for ten quid. Now I need to figure out what to squander that on. Pity you cant use it for postage and package.

What seems to have happened to my sisters roses is that the snow have borken the main stems rather than they being frost damaged so there might be more hope for them than I thought.
