Re: syringa madame lemoine

from Ann

thanks for taking the time.
Plant was about just over a foo when I bought it, from a national trust property so I know it's a goodie! I'm feeding it with "Westland" slow release granular food. Hope this info is of help. Ann

syringa madame lemoine

from Ann

Hi, I planted a syringa madame lemoine about a year ago and although there are plenty of healthy green leaves on the plant it hasn't flowered at all this year. I'm promised large very fragrant blooms and can't wait! Is this normal? and how long beforethe flowers appear? I have fed it well and as mentioned it looks very healthy. Any advice welcome and many thanks. Ann

Re: Water butts

from Ann

I know I'm a little late with this advice but there is a product sold on the crocus website that cleans your water butt and it will enable you to add sink water and washing machine water to your water butt and will make it safe to use. Hope this helps. Ann

Re: Re: Gloriana

Hi Anita,
many thanks for your advice. I have decided on the Gertrude Jekyll you mentioned..Looks a stunner and very fragrant. Found a lovely spot for my "Gloriana" I am a new member to "Shoot" and you are my first gardening pal. Thank you again!

I bought this beautiful rose with the intention of growing it up a 6' 4'' rose obelisk but now realise it may need more space to see it's full beauty. I have a small cottage garden and need a rose for the obelisk in the middle of a border, which is not very large. Any ideas? Thanks
