Well done Tracey!! 

I've got forest flame, just gave it a fairly serious chop! It was looking a bit old and worn. Lots of lovely rich red shoots coming out now.

Choosing a clematis

Posted: 11/03/2014 at 22:29

Some gorgeous ideas!, may have to snatch a couple!,  we bought a clematis a few years ago and planted in a pot outside the back door in remembrance of our dog when she was put to sleep. I can't remember the name but we call it Casey! It has lively rich burgundy flowers. Anyway since then I seem to have built up a collection of around 10 different types. Can't wait to see them all flower this year

Tracey, my new obsession.

One is flowering at the mo, but the other I think will flower in early winter so we'll see what it's like in about December.

 

Puncdoc, fab piccies. 

Feel inspired to take a few more piccies myself. OH bought me a tablet for my birthday so it makes the job of downloading much easier.

I saw all the piccies of Hellebores on here and couldn't resist getting a couple.  We went to Wimpole Hall for the day in the lovely sunshine and they had plants on sale. £7.00 each. 

 

Tracey your piccies are great. 

Since joining GW forum,I have been overwhelmed with all the support & advise

I didn't make cake, but I made soup to go with that lovely loaf of bread. 

 

I agree with everyone. Great forum for info, a laugh etc. I particularly like the photos.

Planting for cut flowers

Posted: 10/03/2014 at 20:16

Hi. I would also like to grow cut flowers and am going to set aside a patch at my allotment.  So far my ideas are Cosmos, I like purity which is white, delphinium, salvia (cant remember exact type)  Dwarf sunflowers,  sweet peas. Dahlias. Any other ideas greatfully received. X  I have loads of seeds ive collected over the last few months and will just try a few of each.
