The most important thing to do is prepare the hole the rose is to be planted in well , with drainage, compost (and old horse muck if you are lucky)and make sure the rose is planted firmly , sprinkle some rose feed around the base and it should...

Too cold for the Rosebush?

I have a new rosebush that need to go in the ground. Should I wait til it's a bove a certain temperature outside? We've always bought rosebushes in the summer, so I'm not sure~

Re: Your Moisturizer

Lillia, thank you for your reply. You say cornflour instead of cornmeal - I looked the latter up on the internet, and it appeared quite yellow. Do you mean the cornflour that you could use to make white sauce with? Do you use the other ingredients (honey and olive oil) as a cleanser on a daily basi...

Re: Townies dont like my cockerel. ;)

This discussion could go round in circles. If you move next a farm then you expect farm noises, but if you move next to allotments you don't necessarily expect noises. Blatfarm, please don't give in without a fight. I understand, Grannyof4, but that's my point. Maybe you should expect noise living ...

Re: Townies dont like my cockerel. ;)

Out of curiosity had you got your cockerels when the people moved in? I don't think you can compare it to someone moving to near an airport, you ARE going to get planes but just because you move out of town you are NOT necessarily going to be near cockerel/s. I am not siding with the townies and ne...
