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.
A lot of people do this kind of thing in an old, shallow ceramic or stone sink/trough. Sedums and alpines I would imagine are the things to plant. The effect can be very attractive.
Quite a few of my seedlings have done this too; the tomato newsletter that I get suggests a drop of water issued via a pipette, but frankly, the seed casing will fall off soon anyway
need close-ups of 1 & 2
4 MAY be a philadelphus, but cannot be sure.
I keep the garden tools in my studio, but in no way is that my potting shed. I use the greenhouse; 6x8 lean-to, I built my own staging and I use part of that as a potting bench. Made a shelf below the staging which has large plastic boxes for spare pots and seed trays (they get very cobwebby if they are not in containers). I sometimes put a stool in there and sit with a cup/glass on chilly evenings...bliss
SFord, we will need to see pics
