Sorry, it's Hydrangea Seemanii which is evergreen.

I have Virginia Creeper and it's an absolute pest, now it's got into the veggie garden, don't know how - it's 50m from the house. Seems resistant to glyphosate.

Crab apple is my normal choice for small gardens, but I thought it might be too wide for this one. My daughter has a small garden and they have an espalier apple tree on one wall. You could always hang bird feeders on that Prunus!

Morning all. Sun is shining, but not so warm. Good gardening day, but I feel knackered after the weekend events. Charity BBQ Saturday, Bring and share lunch here after Sunday church to finish up the BBQ food.

Evergreen and coloured flowers is not so easy to find. Hydrangea Petiolaris is evergreen, but the flowers are white. It also is happy on a Northwest wall, not the sunniest. Roses have lovely flowers, but aren't evergreen and need more attention. Some would need more sun. Honeysuckle is fairly tough and easy. Some clematis have gorgeous flowers, but there are so many sorts, you would do best looking at a site like this one and learning a bit about them. http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/ 

If a plant is sold growing in a pot you can plant it at anytime of the year. Before planting dig the ground and add some compost and a blood, fish and bone fertiliser.

Hello chica, I remember you from before. It is addictive isn't it? But does it matter? It's good to chat with other gardening people.

How do I keep my indoor herbs alive?

Mint will normally be too big for a windowsill, chives really prefer living outside, so does mint. Basil I usually find OK from a supermarket, I nip off the tops of the shoots to use and they grow sideshoots. Parsley can be funny, it may recover, or you could cut it up and freeze it in a plastic bag to use when you want. Don't overwater but keep damp. For the first days don't put them in direct sunlight, it may be too strong through a window, do it gently. As Nutcutlet says, they are grown to be used.

What about a Prunus Amanogawa? It is a very slender flowering cherry. This is a pic from Google.

Autumn is just starting and new plants are appearing, like Sternbergia Lutea (yellow autumn crocus), cyclamen and Michaelmas daisies.
