What is an all year round garden?

Posted: 06/11/2016 at 21:12

Lovely picture, Nut.


I think I have something flowering every month of the year, except possibly December. There may be the odd viola out then and there are berries, if the birds haven't eaten them all. They don't usually eat the berries on the Nandina, but they like the cotoneasters and the pyracantha.

Gorgeous roses,Yviestevie.


I usually agree with you, punkdoc. Don't worry about those who don't agree with you, we don't all have the same views. But I hope they haven't sent you unpleasant PMs, if they have then ignore them.


Lunch went well, lamb and veg were lovely and I enjoyed the company. They stayed until after 5pm. I've just finished washing up what wouldn't fit in th dishwasher.


Glad you had a good visit, Dove. The pheasant from the farm shop was delicious and so was the Sea Bass.

I hope you feel better soon Thankthecat.


It's lovely and sunny outside and the lamb is filling the kitchen with the fragrance of Rosemary and garlic. I'm having brekkies, slice of toast.

Rose suggestion for new metal arch?

Clare Austin, I've heard (haven't got it) can have heavy flowers that hang their heads. There is a lovely little white rambler called Snow Goose, repeat flowering, from David Austin. A friend has it on an arch, gorgeous.


I have A Shropshire Lad, beautiful shaped flowers and almost thornless, but it doesn't have a lot of flowers at a time. Does yours, Chicky? Mine is in a large pot though, up a pillar.

Morning all.


Just put the 5hr lamb in the oven, will have to take it out later to make room for the roast potatoes which will be at a higher temperature. 2 couples of new friends coming to lunch.

We've just been to a bonfire and fireworks in a local village. Fireworks were magnificent. They were selling drinks and hog roast sandwiches in the village hall next to the field, but we were to full of roast pheasant and raspberries from the farm shop Dove told us about

I have Crown Princess Margareta, but she's still a baby and getting off to a slow start. I've seen her in other gardens, lovely.


I also have Mme Alfred C and I think, if she grows like mine, that she would be too big for your arch.


Have you tried "Classic Roses", a rose nursery started by Peter Beales? I've sorted some here.
