You have them with the open end at the top, so the luck doesn't drop out.

Lovely pictures everyone here's a few taken today.  Thought I would stick with the rose theme.

This is the first year I have ever attempted to grow anything from seed since I grew mustard and cress at school.  I thought I'd share my excitement.

In my walled garden I would like

Shrubs and Trees that grow to exactly the size I want and flower at exactly the time I want.

Oh and can I have a garden that looks after itself when I'm on holiday please (including a lawn that doesn't grow until I get back).

Welcome Jinxygg, Nikki B and Thomzo.  Ive been using the site for just over a year and I've learned so much from some very friendly individuals.  Ask your questions and people will do their best to answer.

No idea what the red one is (it's a colour I don't go for).  It is odd isn't it the way the red is the stronger.  I bought a Stratheden this year, that's how I know its yellow.  Ooh just a thought isn't Mrs Bradshaw a red.  I think you could be right that somehow there are two plants in one pot.

HELLO FORKERS!

Evening all, Congratulations Lily, how exciting, have to say being a Nanna is the best thing in the world.

Good Luck for tomorrow WW.

Have been really busy in the garden today, out there from 10 - 6.  Got lots done, planted the purchases from yesterday and cut back/tidied loads of plants.  We're supposed to get rain tonight so only watered the baskets, new plantings and pots.  Hope the forecast is right as the whole garden needs a good soak.

Lady Stratheden is supposed to be yellow Nut not red.

Casualties in the heat.......

No real casualties but, I agree, the roses didn't really like it.  Rambler Paul's Noel especially looked a bit jaded but it has picked up today after some rain.  Mind you the Cannas revelled in it.
