On the top of this page is a place that says "search this site" with a magnifying glass sign. Type in "birthday", click on the sign and it will take you to a search page. I think it's "It's my birthday".

Found it http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/its-my-birthday/455545-42.html  but saw you'd already found it.

Mystery Vine

Try feeding it in the spring and watering when the weather is dry, it may flower. Will need pruning too. They often don't flower for several years when young.

August replanting in terrace pot

Trailing lobelia sometimes fizzles out, especially in full sun. The fuchsia and petunias should last longer. Last year some of my petunias got straggly so I cut them back, gave them a feed and they re-grew. If they really aren't any good then see if there is anything in the garden centre.

That is what I think as well. Mine are in the ground, have been fed and regularly watered, they are huge. I don't think those pots are big enough either.

I've really tried to take photos of birds on the feeders and never managed it, they all fly away.

This is the sky last night preparing for the storms we had in the night. It had been blue sky 32°.

We had thunderstorms in the night, woke me up, so no watering here either.

Honeysuckle - Grow It Thick And Bushy on Wires Only??

Posted: 23/08/2015 at 08:31

I completely agree with Fairygirl.

I have 6 honeysuckles, all in the ground, all in part shade, all tied to strong wires attached to walls. 2 are Hallianas, they are very vigorous, grow way taller than me. I cut them right down last winter because wild ivy started growing in them and was trying to take over the wall. I wanted to remove the ivy, not an easy job. Now the honeysuckle has already grown taller than me again. The supports you have shown will not be strong enough in the future.

Honeysuckle is a vigorous woodland plant, may be OK for a couple of years in a pot then will want to be planted in the earth.
