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.

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.

Still have lots to do too. New plot on allotm

ent  to tidy up. Mainly digging over ready for next spring. Probably going to put potatoes on much of it next spring.


I want to redesign my back garden too, work on making the borders more interesting. OH made me a new raised bed this summer which worked out great so I'm inspired to do more.
