There is a lovely simple yellow rose called Mermaid, which keeps a lot of it's leaves in the winter.

If you need small pots, approach a local nursery (preferably not part of a big chain) and ask them; it is not worth their while to wash/sterilise and re-use, so they normally just go to re-cycling. I had hundreds for the Flooded Gardens project

Verdun, 2 questions; are you growing that Buddlea Ivory Buzz in a container and are the flowers really ivory, not white?

...and Lou12, I saw Sissinghurst about 25 years ago and was disappointed with the 'white' garden as any slightly cream shade looks grubby against a purely white flower. But the rest of the garden then was in good condition, I think it was late May/early June. I have noticed over the years that a lot of major gardens are well over their best by even the beginning of August. Though the one we went to today (Castor gardens) was in it's prime

About gourds, Zoomer; when I was a child my brother grew them and I think they were used as household ornaments (placed in bowls etc). Some years ago I bought some and brought them up to the Fens and put them in bowls and left some in the London flat. The ones in the Fens went moldy as it is so humid here, the ones in London lasted much longer.
