Got a very large, sad thyme from B&Q last year for 50p; all it needed was plunging into water to revive

Any that you had last summer will have self seeded. They can be invasive; one small bed I have I could just leave it year in, year out and it would always have them. I have to pull them out ruthlessly to fit the sweet peas in.

I grew them one year, but missed the 'nano-second' when they were the right size. Too big and sprawling for my veg bed.

I was given a small, but quite old walnut tree in a pot last summer. I have potted it on to a larger pot. I won't know if it has survived until the spring when hopefully there will be new leaves. Am hoping to make it a 'standard' style tree.

Welcome Wendy, any climbers you put there would benefit from you enriching the earth; (chicken manure pellets/ fish, blood and bone meal/ well rotted manure) as the soil looks a bit neglected. Also initially, at least, you will have to tie the climbers on as you don't have many horizontal pieces. Have you considered a climbing rose like Compassion also to keep out unwanted guests?
