Spray folks?  What with?  It seems insecticides and fungicides are keeping most of your roses going yet every year they are being banned one by one.

One reason I stopped growing roses...just one now...is because of the health and safety factor using these sprays.   Growing roses well is not easy without these pollutants.  

Why start again? the same problems will happen again.

Pottie Pam We  are indeed lucky in Cornwall in that, so far, we have not experienced the full impact of the troubles caused by immigration etc.  May I qualify that before opportunists jump in......my concern is about the number of terrorists that have masqueraded as genuine migrants.  Of course I don't know for sure but what an opportunity it has been and is for them now.  

allow the government to be cautious about migrants and stop painting us as evil uncaring people for daring to say this.

naivety is still seen in the comments today and I find this worrying.

Age is irrelevant Busy.....the old have families incl young ones.  See the children in need prog last night to see the effect on children who have lost their families.

i too feel strongly that our rights to privacy should be disregarded now. give our security forces all they need to protect us.  Our main human right is the right to LIFE.

PEOPLE WILL NEVER INTEGRATE. When will we ever understand that?  Why should they? 

highly emotional issue about the migrants but they are from another continent with far different ways, customs, and thinking.  And they are coming in their hundreds of thousands with no end in sight ever.  many of these people will come to resent us, not respect us, for the way we are and, no, they will not integrate, but will form factions of their own.  We will resent them too........

Missed your post Chicky.....hope all is well with OH 

it's not us about selling arms,,feeling guilty or hypocritical or beating ourselves up about this or any atrocity.  We didnt attack the people in Paris, behead innocent people, etc. Etc.  IS did.  There is nothing wrong in selling arms...it's the real world we live in.  We are a nation of decent people as most nations are

We have to stop blaming ourselves....for those who do, don't worry.  We will suffer as those in Paris did.  The same terrorists are in this country now

In Cornwall Elizabeth....in the warm part near the coast but protected 

your P Rubrum is tender...as you know.....and keeping it over winter is not easy.  Sometimes I can but often not.

Jacy, the slugs have not gone.  They are there waiting and watching for you to put out their next meal.

 Remove any flowers and repot in early spring.  You will find it growing fast then so repot a few times until it fills a 3 litre pot then plant it out.  A few pellets and/or night time surveillance and you will have good flowering plants in early summer
