It's a wild Arum Lily. Those berries are poisonous. Quite an attractive plant if you don't have children, but, if you do I'd dig it up. Mine thought they were sweets and ended up in hospital. Funny thing is, my husband was a dentist and they weren't allowed sweets. Perhaps that's why it was more tempting!

Rebecca is on that Taylor's Clematis site I sent the link for. If you look on the left, Clematis by name and click on that. Looks a good one.

Here is one of my beds in May, looking reasonably neat.

 And here it is again today looking rather scruffy and yellow and red.

 Here is the lower middle bed, gone blue and pink.

Georgie, your garden is looking really lovely, and it's one of those nice pictures that enlarges when you click on it.

I thought I saw a reply from Andy the other day. A thread from someone wanting to know something, not a chat thread.

I think sometimes one is just busy and life takes over. Maybe more people on here in winter.

I like Charlotte, which are 2nd earlies. You can dig them early and they are good new potatoes, leave the rest in the good until they mature and they are like main crop but earlier and they keep well. They are also more blight resistant than some varieties.

I'd paint the wall then put up some trellis then plant clematis. There's a good site that tells you all about them here  http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/

Good points from Smokin Donkey. I only use my GH from March when I start sowing in heated propagators, so warmth in winter isn't so much of a problem. I have a frame filled with sand with a heating cable in it which I put young tender plants in at night when it's cold.

Morning all.

Went to a good dinner party last night, ate on Terrace outside, wonderful views, nice food.

It depends what you want to do with it. Mine is aluminium on an aluminium base which is concreted in. I kept half of it earth to plant into. Paving is good for where the potting bench and shelves are as it's easy to keep clean.
