Nice Sophie.

check out convolvulous mauritanica ..  Velvety lilac blue flowers, all summer long, on cascading spreading semi evergreen plants.  Lovely plant.  Easy and thrives in dry soil.  

English vs Spanish bluebells

I have a few (unwanted) bluebells but I don't allow, them here if I can help It.

lovely though they are bluebells are thugs unless given separate woodland areas.  They constantly apread to crowd out better garden worthy plants 

sorry bluebell lovers 

Where are all the ranters?

Too many fat  labs around.  They will eat and eat and many owners take their dogs for a waddle.  A run is unheard of; a limit on food is unthinkable.  Owners and their dogs 

always had lean, fit dogs and they are much happier for it

Adds magnesium but generally is a great plant tonic.  Cheap from any chemist, one teaspoon in 1 litre of water and no harmful side effects.

I use it on ericaceous plants including blueberries and also on tomatoes Korno

Korno, agree with watering.  No to removing leaves...they are the lifeblood of your rose esp at this time of year.  I would also give it a spray of epsom salts ...not when sun is out....once a week for next month
