Strange, Artjak, I can grow peas, but not Sweet Peas. I think it's too hot here in summer. Can grow coriander, but it goes to seed quite quickly. Last year it seeded itself all over the herb bed and part of the potato area.
Can grow eremurus, but when it's finished there is a bit of a bare patch. It's huge spidery roots take up quite a bit of space. I'd probably forget to water it if I put something in a pot there. Pots need watering every day in the summer and I have lots on the terraces. Including a dwarf rhododendron in acid compost that I can't grow in the alkali soil.
I thought last year's delphiniums hadn't survived so I bought more and now the others are all coming up!
