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.

Dove. I agree about begonia, I have a simple little white one in the kitchen which flowers non-stop. Every few months it gets a hair cut to stop it getting straggly.

All those trees in the distance are wonderful, what is called a 'borrowed view'.

That wall is going to look great.

If you have any carpentry skills you could make your own troughs from pressure treated timber.

Hello, could we see a photo of the house; is it really hard edged Art Deco or more suburban (which would possibly mean standard roses and hollyhocks).
