Oh goodness me Irishgardener, you have a lot on your plate.

Good luck with the blankcanvas, I had one of those once and there's only two things I would say about my experiences:

Landscape before you plant and choose your plants wisely.

Morning Forkers.

Get well soon Gardengirl.

Another stunning gorgeous day here today. Got a lot of landscaping done yesterday, it was very dusty dirty work but somebody had to do it  OH built me another raised veg bed not in the veg plot but the little bit that joins middle garden to bottom. You'll see later when i post a before and after although I took some photos yesterday, I have a new camera that needs adjusting

Rose aid please

PRUNING: Climbing roses, prune out dead and crossing branches and anything that doesn't fit your space. Tie the branches horizontal and deadhead for more flowers.

:Rambling roses, prune only dead or old branches from the base at about one third. Never prune new growth if you can help it unless its too big. They can get rather large, so plant somewhere and let them romp away. Only flower once a year, abundantly.

Chilly in kent again this morning and work this afternoon. Just done my Wicks order so I'll be labouring in the garden by the end of the week

Oh well, once the path and lower garden are finally done, its the veg plot in the autumn and weeeee...landscaping is complete.  Only took me twenty years

Morning forkers.

Wet here and work this afternoon so my gardening is very limited today, but the small joy in that is seeing whats new when I do get out there on Wednesday.

Happy gardening to all
