Best support for growing clematis to cover wooden fence

Posted: 20/10/2014 at 20:59

I use staple gun to attach mesh but have problem of little growth on honeysuckle & clematis[ they have sun all day nut are behind a bushy lavatera & delphiniums---will these be blocking the light too much?

Good point--I also put them straight in the soil; ---as I did with my agapanthus & then heard Monty say tonight that they should be kept in pots!!! 

So much to learn & remember!!

Are  you saying that all these ''sinks'' we see with plants in, have an interior lining---seems a lot of ''kerfufle' if I may say so? I knew I had to ensure good drainage, then thought you just popped plants in, with suitable compost.-------

I visited Anglesey Abbey as a result of reading on this forum & was blown away by the ''snowdrop walk''---I think at different times of the year there will be different gardens of interest---but, a great big but----was the lack of organisation in the restaurant; not enough staff, long queues etc etc---& it was mid week & it wasnt in school holidays!!!

I think you'll have a great time with your greenhouse---I was like you in the beginning & each year find more things to use it for---now am after a larger one but no chance I used to have a stool----took up less space but then got rid as took up too much room!!!!


Why dont you  use it for making early start on veg & flower seeds--using seed trays that have plastic lids over them for added protection???

I am the lucky recipient of an old butler's sink in good condition which I would like to use in the garden---id there anything special that I should do to it before setting it up with plants? And what would readers recommend--a herb garden in it or an alpine garden???

Eagerly looking forward to your ideas---
