Nut, I would have thought that your lawn, surrounded by trees would be pretty protected from the wind?

Clematis Orange Peel; grows like crazy, has been flowering for months, and I think Nutcutlet told me you can cut it back hard after flowering so the winter winds won't cause too much damage. Mine is growing over an exposed arch here in the Fens, which nothing else could handle.

Verdict....your new plants this year

Cucumber 'Crystal Apple' prolific/delicious and not too large.

Marmande tomatoes; just wonderful

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?
