ANOTHER YEAR JUST SLIPPED ON BY…
It’s been a wonderful year for us here at Clonbinane! We’ve settled the roses into their new ‘home’ and gotten used to the idea that our business is different – we speak to you weekly through this newsletter which continues to be a real pleasure for all of us, lots of our roses leave the nursery packed in a box rather than the boot of a car, we grow more of our own food now and rose gardens are being planted here. We have new chooks, the Langshans and a miniature poodle puppy, Mooi. Life is grand!
Graham is more understanding about me spending time at the computer and is slowly learning how to read more on this screen. The old saying: “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” has happened for Graham.
GRAHAM’S TIPS FOR HOLIDAY ROSE CARE…
- Soak, like really soak the garden beds before you go and make soaking them one of the first chores when you get home;
- Potted roses can be left with a deep saucer of water under them but will need attention at least every second day;
- If your whole-garden mulching hasn’t been done yet, place a thick layer about one-metre square around each rose bush;
- Dose each rose with liquid seaweed which ensures 3-5 degrees greater heat tolerance!
Generally tidy up the garden before you go to make your place look ‘lived-in’ and less attractive to intruders!
Last joke for this year: Q. What do cats eat as a special treat? A. Mice creams.
Have a really lovely holiday season – a break in sending the Rose Rambler will give me time to research more information and find some great jokes for 2014 … see you then
