Just bought a load from the wonderful Moat Road Nursery, 80p a bunch, bare rooted. I suggest you google local nurseries, they are often much cheaper than Garden Centres like Dobbies and B&Q.

Or as Dove suggests, car boots and street markets.

Heat rises, so wrapping the roof would be logical, but I have never wrapped my g/h, though perhaps I should.

I agree about the Russian Vine, also known as mile a minute. It is pretty impossible to keep it in check.

The Really Garlicky Company (motto; it's chic to reek!)

I ordered 4 bulbs of garlic 'music' on Thurs pm, the parcel arrived today, beautifully wrapped and there were 51, yes folks, 51 huge cloves for £11.75 inc postage.

I am really impressed.

That is quite art deco. A banana will survive if you are quite far south, there is one in Shepherds Bush, West London that thrives. There are palms that will tolerate British weather, it is just a case of researching them. Paving stones, gravel and dare I say it fake grass? There are some amazingly convincing types around. Big stylish pots with large architectural plants.
