Hoping there are some gardeners here...

For anyone interested in gardening & a bit of light relief from the problems of this world

Okaaayyyy.. a quick trip around the PHPBB support forum reveals that PHPBB does not like images without the standard file extensions which is what TinyPic produces. Soooo.... here goes again, and if this works you all had better say how lovely my roses are since I went to such an effort... :D

The smell is amazing...



Well, Twig, I really do think it's just you - or did I edit this wrong?

cheers, Nigel

Yeah, LOVELY roses!!

I can nearly feel the urge to nurture some myself - but oh, I haven't got the sewerage yet!!

Beautiful piccy Twig :)

We use stable manure, which we get for free from a farm.

My Dad always used to put a dollop or two of horse manure (without straw etc) into a water butt, I always thought it was a strange thing to do, but we had an amazing garden and his pot plants, tubs etc were superb! :)

Thanks all. My new neighbours have 4 horses in the garden (yes, in the garden!) so manure is relatively easy to get.

I don't have a water butt at the moment, but since I just applied for a water meter I suppose I should think about that. Hmmm... does manure float?

Alright...roses. When the blooms die off are you supposed to chop them off or what?

I think with most roses you can just snap off the dead heads, there's a little joint just below the flower head to make it easier! :)

I have a plan for them next year.. I'm going to train them up across a wall where at the moment there is ivy stuff. I'm going to cut the ivy back in Autumn and then in March use the advice in that link of yours Beech to cut some back and leave other bits to go where I want them to go....I hope...
