Pig C, you can often see that book in Charity shops

planting between shaped bushes on a fence (tall structural plant ideas please)

Delphiniums? One of mine was 8' tall this year; cut back after flowering and you should get another flowering later. I have some in a pretty shady spot as well as full sun.

Pig C, welcome; I have never removed anything from sweetcorn. Have just looked up in 'the vegetable and herb expert' (v. useful book) and he says; side shoots should NOT be removed. Any roots exposed at the base, cover with old compost, water in dry weather, tap tassels at the top of each stem when fully developed in late June or July will help pollination. Liquid feed when cobs start to swell.

I ate one at Garden Organic last year; it was growing in a greenhouse and it was September. It really did taste like a cross between the two

Native mixed hedge against a fence?

Uberto, I don't know how large your garden is, but a native hedge will end up being fairly thick. I would attach some trellis to the fence or wires and grow clematis, roses or other climbers up it, hopefully that wouldn't steal too much space from the rest of the garden

I love the look of it; I have hopefully planted it where it will like to go forth and multiply

I found it impossible to grow from seed so decided to get a small plant this year in the hope that it will seed.

Salino, I was just so impressed by the speed of delivery and the packaging, which has instantly gone to a friend who does ebay.

When I googled Miss Wilmotts Ghost (the plant I wanted) one of the sites that came up was RHS, Crocus was not there.

Edd thank you for that tip.
