Sad Christmas Roses

Posted: 14/10/2014 at 18:56

Cannot keep my Christmas roses for more than 2 years

However, if I grew them again I would do so in pots.  John innes and mushroom compost topped with grit.  Partial shade too

Dwarf Dahlias

Yes I have grown it.  Didn't like it at all.  A bonsaid dahlia,,for me, looks odd even freakish.  

However, they should not get attacked more by slugs, snails or caterpillars.  If your plant was a bit below par pests will be drawn to it and not because it is a dwarfed variety. 

is it too late to overseed my lawn?

Yes sow now.  Cover lightly. It will germinate quickly right now

ba nanna cake? 

Been a fantastic day...very warm, even hot at times, dry and no wind.  

Had a meeting to discuss my mums care home situation.  A lovely residential home is now a possibility but my mum seems to change day by day. Currently she forgets so much, can't put too many words together but seems content.  A difficult decision to make 

Matty, heleniums are fast becoming a favourite of mine.  Don't know Sunset but given some moisture in summer they are all fantastic.

 

Vandalism!

BOATER, that's unacceptable.  Can  you have a word with any of the parents ?

Talk to police ...they will prob have a word with the suspected vandals . Spread the word to your neighbours 

Would you like to have a dog?  

Prickly bushes like Berberis  Darwinii in the long run

A catapult would be my chosen solution but prob not the way.
