Yay! Can't wait for mine to flower. The new growth on my other roses has been zapped by the frosts....hoping they will recover. As for my hydrangeas, they are ok...just! Although not sure if they will flower this year😕
Morning everyone, have a super Sunday 🙋♀️. Zephirine has had this one bud for a couple of weeks now but I don’t think it will open as it gets no sun at this time of the year 🌺 #climbing-rose-zephirinedrouhin
Morning Jeremy, it is isn’t it. Elaine @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom read or was told, I can’t remember which, to feed every two weeks which is what I’ve been doing and it’s made such a difference 👍 @jpea
@jpea @pelly It was on the ‘Beechgrove Garden’ programme...apparently they tried it last year with much success.... I’ve religiously done it but I have found some black spots on one rose bush but all my others are still good..👍🏼🌹
I found that too Elaine, so I'm religiously picking off the leaves and making sure there are no leaves fallen. This was one of the points they made absolutely clear at the rose pruning course I went on earlier this year @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom @pelly
Mine are on the bottom arch 1 either side. To be honest I didn’t get in garden yesterday at all from after school run. And we’re pretty much flat out for the rest of the week. Alton towers on the 12/5 for 3 nights. Away so going to miss Bruno and the garden.
My newest climbing Rose not only looks like an old fashioned one (which it is) but it smells like one too, it's perfume is divine and reminds me of the Roses in my parents garden when I was a young girl 🌼🌼
