Teacup Flowers And Regal Roses
Interestingly the last few Roses from Wilko's have been grown in Poland. Does anyone know is Poland a hotbed of Rose growing,or is it a new industry?
The Rose Queen Elizabeth had been trimmed and sealed with green wax.The roots have been wrapped with black polythene over a sawdust/chicken manure mix.I washed off the foul smelling compost mix and planted in my mix (garden compost,and Asda compost).
I went around today and sprinkled Rose food in all the pots and the four Roses in the front garden.They will need feeding after their first flush of flowers has finished.Im a Rose O phile..
I checked my Chili seeds today in the conservatory.Alas they had all got a rotting infection.I saved 3 Scotch Bonnet,and 1 Jalapeno.I promptly went online and ordered some new Chili seeds from Suttons. Chili Tabasco,and extra Hot Jalapeno.I will try a new way of germinating seeds as suggested by Laura,who has the most impressive Chili plants in the blogosphere.
Spring will hopefully be here soon, and the temperature is predicted to rise on the weekend.
