Now is the perfect time of year to be taking cuttings from many of the wonderful plants in your garden, especially roses!
Listen to me chatting to Rebecca Parker from BBC Radio Solent on how to make the best of your cuttings for a beautiful garden next year.
Roses need attention all year round, but right now they need a little extra attention to grow beautiful huge blooms next year. This is a short piece from myself on BBC Radio Solent talking over the autumnal rose jobs to do before the temperature drops.
There is nothing better than the late summer sun shining on the roses which are flowering their socks off after these past few days of warm weather. White Gold, a wonderful rose from Harkness, set against Verbena Bonariensis looks fantastic in The Sheep Dip garden as does Charlotte with Salvia Nemerosa. We, along with The Real Flower Company, are praying we will be spared the frost forecast for later in the week which will put an end to this splash of early autumn beauty.
