Have a look at Lonicera Heckrottii , a honeysuckle with fragrant flowers that isn't as big as some and would grow in a large pot. Will need some pruning and tying in position. Honeysuckles are woodland plants so don't mind some shade.

So long as you see a doctor, hurting and smelling sounds like an infection to me, as I said before. Don't try to pull it out, no matter how mad it drives you. There is a little blown up ball thing at the end to stop it falling out, air will have to be let out first to deflate it before gently easing it out. I have removed many in the past.

I think Monty is doing a good job, but he looks a bit tired. Prefer him at Chelsea to GW. Alan T has been on TV showing his own show garden, liked him too. I like Nikki Chapman, she's human, sympathetic and funny and quite attractive. Why do women presenters have to be "eye candy" ? She's a TV presenter, you don't need big gardening knowledge to present Chelsea and there is a mixture of presenters anyway, some of whom are gardening experts.

Oh dear, sounds awful. I hope you manage to get a night's rest. Perhaps you need antibiotics, could be an infection. Go to A&E tomorrow. When I was a nurse I don't remember men saying it hurt that much, perhaps they were putting on a brave face. I've removed catheters and no one even said "ow".

Thank you David. I love your garden. I would like to know the name of the dark clematis too.

Morning all.

I hope everyone who is going out enjoys their day and the rain holds off.

Cranes fly over my house every spring and autumn, they make a hell of a racket. They were early this year, end of February, also higher than usual so photo not very good.

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Have weeded and added Nicotiana and Busy-Lizzies to the round bed under the robinia tree.

Howling gale now, storms forecast.

Mrs. Garden's mistake  made me laugh!

Dove can't take sugar in her tea, Campari and soda not sweet enough for me. Like white wine though, and Martini Bianco with lemonade.
