A fully formed Freddie at this time of the year. My Salvia Hot Lips is looking really good too. Today is the first couple of hours gardening I've done in some weeks. I even got two packs of tulip bulbs in so I'm pleased about that 👑❤️❤️

I’ve never got a plant off Amazon ... might have to re think my buying lol

Mary200631 Amazon is brilliant. Especially if you get Prime at a trial price, it's only 99p for a week. I got it delivered one or two days after ordering it and it was in great condition.

I’m not great with cuttings either.. but I do believe roses are meant to be the easiest and there are a few different ways of doing it too... maybe try some different techniques... just found the rose and put it in my own virtual basket now too lol.. definitely going to have a look at other plants now..

@kez001uk Yes he does. Can't wait for the first of three buds to open. He's growing fast! I think he likes coffee grounds and the plant food 🥂♥️

@midnightgardener it’s a good thing he wasn’t too eager to open or he’d have been wrecked after the winds this weekend. Timed it just right 👍🏻

Something does make me happy, this beautiful Freddie Mercury Rose. He's looking red at the moment, I really don't mind that but he's said to be pink, yellow and apricot in colour. Watch this space, hopefully he'll bloom in a few days. I can hardly wait 👑♥️♥️
