Thank you Salino , I also find this in one of my books last night and thought it could be this one. It's so lovely that I'd like another one, maybe ill just get one and hope for the best. I am somewhat miffed though that I was sold the wrong one in the first place, especially as it was for a present...luckily I kep it  

Rose ?

Wasn't sure if to put this in plants or problem solving! I bought a silver wedding rose for my sister then discovered someone else had also bought it her so I decided to plant it in my garden...now the label which is attached to the plant clearly says silver wedding, hybrid tea rose, large white blooms....now my plant is gorgeous, really bushy, very dark glossy green leaves but not at all white! They are a beautiful pink.....other that my rosé changing colour I can but assume they were incorrectly labelled....anyone recognise which one i have as odd like another one.....

thank you everyone

I use verdone....it's great on lawns as it doesn't kill or mark the grass....it makes the weeds grow fast and in doing so they kill themselves....I use a stronger solutionthat's stated on the bottle though, not much just an extra 5ml

Hi all, I have an orchid that looks really well in that it's upright, leaves are rich green and petals not drooping but dark spots/marks have appeared on quite a few petals.....any ideas what is causing this?

I swear by verdone.....it's brilliant. Spray the weed and it encourages the weed to grow that fast that in doing so it kills itself. Spray directly on to weeds in the grass and it doesn't touch the grass. It really is amazing and much better than anything else I've tried. You have to spray the weed whilst it has good leaf growth and when dry....

oh dear!

I grew some sweet peas early, I love them they are so delicate. I also tried to grow some blue Poppy's at the same time but hand no luck with them...a little to advanced for me at the mo. the best part is that of all the seeds I grew I only actually bohollyhock candytuft and lobelia as all the others were free packets with magazines.....bargain  


oh dear!
