House wall

Morning all,

I want to plant something on the house wall, our house is low and long and very white pebbledash.

,What would ye recommend. Has anybody got something on their house that's evergreen. Don't mind if it has berries or flowers. not Ivy.  I know I will be planting on the foundations but was going to try and dig a hole and put soil into it.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

Hi All,

Has anyone a recipe for pickling cucumbers.

Grew the white ones this year and there's a huge crop from 3 plants. Tastes really good, and a very thin skin on them. I think I rather them to the green ones, also have apple cucumbers plants - in flower at the mo but no fruit yet

beautiful flower, never knew you were supposed to cut the leaves off, do you do it when they are in bud or when  they flower

Dry and very cold here in Dublin, really would like a good blast of frost or little bit of snow, it would kill all the flu thingys floating around in the air. Just got rid of it and now we all have it again.

How about selling bunches of Holly, Ivy, pinecones and other greenery that people can buy to make their own wreaths etc. Just tie them with twine and sell them in bunches. They won`t cost anything,  if you have time to go out for a ramble and collect them.
