What kind of climber support?

And use galvanised wire.  Will last forever then.

Cheeky Kathy.   Yes I know those grasses.    Helictorichon is nice and narrow to slot in most amhwhere.  Prairie Sky is much like heavy metal but I prefer Shenandoah which has nice red leaves.  

Elizabeth, Rubrum seems to need a min of 4 degrees...if I remember correctly....but also to have some moisture over the winter.  The other prob is it's a warm season grower and a late one at that so not a lot to see until late June

It's difficult,,isn't it Philippa?

I guess  people need to talk about these things.....maybe over talk.....to sort their own heads out, to make some sort of sense about it all.  .??

I understood that Fairy.  But when parents die prematurely...killed whatever.....their young children face huge issues.  From personal experience I know the devastation this has on children.  So....age is irrelevant.  I AM talking about the effect on YOUNGSTERS.

You shock easily then Busy.  You need to take it as said but allowing for the fact it was said in a KINDLY way. You have gone off on quite a tangent there I'm afraid spotting only (your chosen) bullet points regardless of context. Rather like reading text messages that can often be read harshly. I wont explain further because that will be denigrated too

Yea...wimps everywhere!    It's really cold here now but I have braved a walk to the beach and cut almost the last of fhe dahlias down.  So cold...prob 14 degrees.  And the rain, blimey I almost got wet in the mizzle.  I'm dreading the temp tonight...bet it will fall below 12 

good news....my Abelia Kaleidoscope arrived.    Looks lovely.  Potted on and will go out in the spring.  A dogwood will make room for it then....will enjoy the red stems first.  Probably ophiopogon or other dark perennial, a blue salvia and elymus magellanicus to plant with it.

Wear a mask when spraying Rainbowfish?  I'm betting you don't .   At least get a mask and wear gloves

Much respect Punkdoc but do you also apply this to criminals?  Don't send them to gaol because others will come to steal from us?  

We do need to close doors at least to enable us to thoroughly check those coming in.  

I'm not a racist in any way....colour,,background, etc. etc makes no difference to me.  I see the individual.  But troubles are brewing.  our own people are getting stressed with worry.  They sense things are not quite as they once were.

 Terrorists are now highly organised, mobile, fanatically motivated and driven and have new found energies.

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.
