I grew a very happy courgette in a galvanised bucket last year; they normally go into large plastic troughs.
Would love to see some pics once you have got everything planted, as I grow some of my veg in containers; partly lack of space and partly to keep tomatoes and potatoes in fresh compost each year to avoid blight. Also, aubergines, cucumbers and some toms are all in containers in the green house. I have an old enamelled jam pan which gets new compost each year for a Tumbling Tom type tomato.
I grow carrots in very big plastic pots and so the lazy carrot fly cannot reach them. When I grew them in large grow bag type containers, I created a barrier with canes and a bit of polythene sheeting.
Have a great weekend and I hope your plans go well for Tuesday.
A sunny morning bump to you all
If it does not have to be completely solid, how about some Compassion roses or other climbers. Also Clematis; there is a huge variety, some evergreen.
Hi New G, may I suggest that you look at 'pleached trees' on google and see if that is the effect that you need. Then report back here and I'm sure you will get lots of advice on how to do it
Verdun, is it Nepeta Walker's Low that you are thinking of?
I'm not really getting a feel for the area from what you have given us. Is there a terrace behind the Barn, which I assume is your house?
Could we see a pic from end of garden looking back at the house? Possibly a pic from a high window?
In my experience, seeds often germinate even though they are passed their use-by date, except, I believe, parsnips.
I am so glad that it is all working so well
Jeannie, don't overdo it will you?
This is really brilliant that plants are now moving in a westerly direction
I have nothing large enough yet to be moved and planted out, but will have soon I hope.
