hi Fairy  we used Cuprinol and didn't thin and went on lovely and in one coat. Other half I think went quickly over it with brush as he sprayed If you get what I mean

My vote goes with Hosta and Fairy and would go ash black.  It would look stunning.  Also I would invest in a paint sprayer as takes half the time.  

Deer at heads off my sunflowers - are they done now ?

Very Long Fence Line

Sorry bit hard to describe but I mean create flower beds that will take your eye away from the long fence 

here are some gardens I googled to try and show you what I mean

I know it must be horrid as the fields will be soon gone but if you let that get to you, you will go nuts 

recently I went to an open garden and all around the edge of their garden was a very busy main road but when you were in the garden you would have never known.

they had created rooms, seating areas and each was different and totally secluded from the road.

maybe think about planting up in arcs rather than all along in a straight line?

sculpture display areas is lovely idea.  Maybe try local car boots etc for the troughs etc

Hi Pat 

if I was you I would think of the fence as a lovely back drop to your plants rather than try and cover it.

i have read your other post and yes it will be exspensive if you plan to buy plants and do all in one go.

maybe take your time and work out exactly what you want and then think about splitting plants, growing from seed, begging from friends etc 😊

I look forward to seeing pics of how you get on
