fuchsia Lena

Lena is a hardy Fuschia in a sheltered position. But I wouldn't plant out new baby plants until the frosts are finished.

Anyone grow Agapanthus in border

Posted: 22/02/2016 at 23:27

I had Headbourne Hybrids in a border when I lived in Kent years ago, sheltered, close to the house. They looked wonderful. I planted a hardy Agapanthus in a border last year, hope it comes up this year.

Perhaps there's a gate in the wall!

I like curves too, but my bed in front of a wall is straight.

Lupins can look good on their own. The photo is Great Dixter in June 2013.

 

Any ideas what I can plant in this space - help!

If you decide you would like climbers on the wood at the back then you could easily put some rows of wires and train clematis along them. It would extend the flowering season if you had some early and later ones, but nothing too vigorous.

Sown more seeds today, things I've found in the past that take a little time to get going, Busy-Lizzies, Lobelia, Antirrhinums, Dahlias. Also some perennials, Penstemon, Dianthus.

Sowed some seeds this afternoon, in electric propagators.

I don't know that the French have the same tastes. I like doughy bread that you can cut in big slices and spread Marmite or Marmalade on. The French around here like baguettes with crust that rips their gums and are full of holes inside so you can't spread anything. But they aren't keen on Marmite or Marmalade.

Morning all. Foggy. Must go and buy a new shower head, it fell apart in the middle of my shower. Had crumpets for brekkies. We brought them back from England, they don't do them in France.

I agree with Hosta. I know it means more work, but the result will be worth it. Think of the climbers you can put on the wall! You need to plant 12 to 18 inches from a wall as it can get dry at the base.
