Garden is getting past it's best as there are plants to cut down and it's getting blousy. Bindweed has been doing very well! But there are still beds in flower.

 and the annual end of my newest bed which is planted with the plants that didn't sell at my charity garden party plant sale.

Is it ok to plant climbing roses in a trough shaped planter

Posted: 22/07/2013 at 09:58

I'd give the tall planter a go. I have several not too tall climbing roses in pots, but they are 50cms deep and 50cms in diameter. I have 2 in a trough, but it also is 50cms deep and 100cms long, 45cms wide. When I fill the pots I mix manure, compost and earth in the bottom half and top up with compost. They will need regular feeding with rose fertiliser and lots of watering.

Here is "The Pilgrim", a David Austin Rose, about 4 years old.

 And Malvern Hills and Phyllis Bide, about 6 years old.

Morning all. Welcome back from hols those who went. Look forward to seeing your photos. There is a gallery for gardens we have visited.

Autumn Perennials

Posted: 22/07/2013 at 09:36

Michelmas daisies, especially "Monch", Rudbeckias, especially "Goldsturm', heleniums.

What are these plants please?

Posted: 22/07/2013 at 09:33

Addict, we used to tread on them too! Well done for Indigofera, at least I guessed pea family.

If it turns out not to be Euphorbia millifera, try Dixter.

Looking forward to the herbaceous stuff!

Nearly changed my mind the other day when wrestling with bindweed in the heat!

How to restrict the spread of a climber?

Posted: 21/07/2013 at 22:59

The advising of replies doesn't seem to be working at the moment.

Ferns would be good! But how do the Buddleia and the Rosemary feel about being in the shade? I thought they preferred sun.

I have Eremurus, only disadvantage is short flowering season. Now I know why it does well here. Very cold winters and hot summers in Dordogne. I cut the flowers down when I get round to it.

I have horses, so I just leave it in a pile for a year until it is black.
