New South facing garden

Hi recently moved into our new home with a very uncared for south facing garden,

Although now im stuck with what will grow the best, especially on the west facing fence?? Thought about some climbers, have recently popped in a Passion Flower, and my Great Grandmas old English rose bush, (handed down in cuttings over the years!!!) But what else could i grow iv dug out a long border right along the fence, the kids bough some lupins, but i want to try and create a herbacious type border, that will also attract wildlife??

Good evening everyone, im new to this and have really enjoyed reading all of your gardening tips and friendly banter!!!!

Warming up nicely in Northumberland, a lovely sunny day, if the weather is like this tomorrow i might attempt to put some onion sets in the veggie patch although my optimism will await with the changeable weather!!!

thanks Lazy gardener, ive got them indoors in a southfacing room at the mo!!

Ive never had much luck with tomatoes, so hoping these hanging varieties are better!!

Do i need to nip out the tops of them once established to encourage them to be bushier, or just leave them as they are?

Thanks for your advice

Hi has anyone tried growing hanging basket variety of Tomatoes and any tips on growing them??

I have recently potted up 3 plants ( Tumbling Tom Red) into 1 hanging basket as recommended from the nursery i bought them from, and plan to hang them on a south facing wall.

Any tips on how to get the best crop?

Spend a little live alot....and where gardening is concerned, its definitely worth a chance with supermarket plants!! After a few people at work stating how good value Aldi was... i decided to try some roses and purchased 2 climbing roses at a  mere £1.79 each! I also bought a peace rose to try out, ive added plenty of blood fish and bone meal and hope after planting in the Autumn that this year.....once it warms up, gives them chance !!!

Also last week after think of nipping in to see what other offers they had, i bagged myself a bargain at 2 Magnolias at £3.99 each (half price)!!!
