Thanks. I'll tell her that. No likelihood of growth from the roots?My mother has grown new dawn for decades that has survived snow and well below -20.

Last night my sister in Sweden told me her old roses seen to have died after two bitterly cold winters. Would heavy pruning to ground level or live wood, if there is any be an option. I think they are quite old plants so perhaps not grafted.

Last years cold winter didn't make all mine split. I used them as seeds this autumn and they have poped up in with quite long intervals (they are scattered all over the place in the vain hope they will scare the slugs too). Hopefully they will split this year.

Ohhh are they soon to flower? It has never done that. It is getting quite big this spring. I think it has grown meters (if you add all the branches together.

I have a self-seeded honeysuckle that I dug out from my mother's garden some 5 years ago. It didn't go into a border until 2010 and has never flowered. This year it has really taken off. Is it likely to flower this year or is this never going to happen. The original plant is gone and no one knows when it was removed. The flowers where pale pink and white and at least 50 years old. I would love to see it flower and perhaps reestablish it again.

I'll try with the ones I have more than one of and see what happens.

Can you? You make it sound like this is a fairly general rule. If sommer ever comes, I'll give the burial of the stem a go.

I am slightly confused over this. Some people here thinks that you can do this with all veg and others only with solanceas (Tomatoes, chilies and peppers). Can some cast some light on this for me. If you could to this with beans, marrows, courgettes that could be great as the ones I am raising indoors are going a bit leggy

Can someone tell me what this is please

Is the first a climber? It kinda look like a honeysuckle.
