I tried to overwinter mine last year by lifting them, potting them and keeping them in a cold but frost free greenhouse.  I didnt succeed, don't know what I did wrong

Building a two level patio. Advice needed...

Having gone down the decking route in a previous house I would not recommend it.  Unless it is in a very sunny spot it becomes lethal as the moss takes hold.  We spent our life treating it with Algonon to stop ourselves falling.

Morning all,  raining here so glad I did the garden jobs yesterday, today I will be mostly washing and being lazy.

Pat and Bushman hope you feel better soon, enjoy you holiday Bushman.

I'm rubbish at Birthdays but glad to hear you enjoyed yours SGL and Lizzie.

Have just caught up with Downton, absolutely love it.  Everything is just so beautiful and the storylines are brilliant.  Will be so sorry to see it end.

Off for a look round now, catch up with you all later.

Is it common for them not to flower in the first year?  I planted mine in a sunny south facing spot, they are at the correct depth and nothing shades them.  I had lots of leaf growth, they look really healthy, but sadly no flowers.

I've had a bit of a problem with blackspot too and I usually remain clear of it.  Think the weather has had a lot to do with it.

Afternoon all, Just got back from hospital, mum's quite frail but they are sending her home, I think she will improve quicker once she's back.

Have had a very productive morning, washed and stored loads of pots, mowed the lawns and sowed Meconopsis Sheldonii Lingholm, Snapdragon Madame Butterfly, Wallflower Ivory White and foxgloves Alba.
