I'm currently revamping a rose garden in one of the gardens I look after, which happily involves planting a lot more roses this winter. Have been given free rein by the lovely garden owner to plant all my favourites - so how's this for a mouthwatering list? Madame Hardy, Charles de Mills, Graham Thomas, Comte de Chambord, Jacques Cartier, Souvenir du Dr Jamain. Can't wait till this lot flower next year... #happysigh

Great to see so many initiatives coming forward from #horticulture industry to help gardeners use the plastic in their gardens in a more environmentally responsible way. HTA has already partnered up with Winchester based plastic pot recyclers Ecogen in national scheme to recycle plant pots from garden centres, now piloting taupe coloured pots (so recyclable at kerbside unlike black pots) #gardeningwithoutplastic

The waste hierarchy: 1) prevent (i.e. don't use #plastic) 2) reuse the plastic you have 3) recycle what you can (i.e. anything that isn't coloured black) 4) disposal. As outlined in the Waste (England & Wales) Regulations 2011 and a good blueprint for dealing with plastic in the garden #gardeningwithoutplastic
