Dan and Paul, how often do you change the potting mdeium in your big pots? I've had around 12 roses in 50cm pots for four years, putting off the awful job of tipping everything out and replacing . Is there any way to replenish the potting mix successfully without all the haulage and mess of emptying the entire pot?

Betsy , I changed the entire mix every two years , I wish there was an easier way , but I find the new potting up works great and the roses seem a lot happier

Actually, David, I believe it was Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser, borrowing from George Bernard Shaw. Sadly, I am old enough to remember him, too.(Fraser, not Shaw)

To the pots: Dan, I have a small fraction of the roses you do, so with me it's more shrinking from hard labour than cost. :sigh: But I will just have to bite the bullet and get on with it. The Paroles are looking peaky, in particular.

FWIW, Dan, mine own beloved and usually hardworking Paroles have never looked worse. I actually had one bloom that was partially pale pink, and was so confused it also thought it was a single. Only one set of petals opened. Then there is silky's orange cuckoo. Maybe Paroles in Oz are jinxed this year.

My Alzheimer's is better than yours, David. I misplaced my car keys today. I found them in the microwave
