Here in Edinburgh - I'm in the town and the little garden is surrounded by high buildings. BUT - the wind somehow swirls around and everything ends up leaning over in one direction, even with a reasonable amount of shelter. Last years continual rain made me decide to stick to quite tough perennials and shrubs this year. I went mad last year doing most things from seed but my favourite annuals were only really worthwhile when I'd limited them to pots and could move them around to cope with the blasted weather. They didn't have much survival or quantity of bloom power in constant rain.
So I'm being really cautious this year and sticking to as many touch shrubs and perennials as I can manage which I think will put up a decent show if the weather turns out to be minimal sunny days.
Can anybody tell me why on the blue band at the bottom of my thread posts it says 'Path' and I can't post any photos anymore? Have I committed a sin of some kind and being technically toyed with - i.e. has some setting to be changed to allow me to once again post photos? Also when trying to post this thread - where I've tried to type the letters path, it replaces with a Smiley sticking it's tongue out? Which might happen here as I've tried to type it again.
