Prune ramblers

Prune rambling roses after they've finished flowering. Cut out the shoots which have flowered, removing them as near to the ground as possible, then tie in new ones in their place. Don't forget to wear thornproof gloves and clothes as the long, whippy, thorn-laden branches can be painful!

Plant of the Week: Autumn/winter pansies

Plant of the Week: Autumn/winter pansies

With a bit of luck your late-summer containers are looking fabulous at the moment, all hot reds, oranges and yellows. But a good gardener is always one step ahead - so now is the time to be thinking about what you'll be planting to follow them.

Luckily we've got just the thing. Pansies are the troopers of the bedding brigade: cheerful, easy-going and flowering through all but the very coldest weather from autumn through till spring.
