Here's one last summer.....there is a wigwam of hazel poles under there somewhere

There are some bred specially for pots - i think they call them patio clematis.  I have a couple called Abilene, that have been happily growing in the same pots for the last 5 years.  They are group 3 so get pruned down to about 6 inches every March, then they have covered their wigwam again by June, and flower well.  I put a couple of the slow release food pellets in the compost every year too

If you go into your settings (click on your name in the sign on part of the screen) you can change your Forum settings so that you start a thread on the last unread post, rather than the first.

also, if you enter a thread by clicking on the little green arrow on the right, rather than the title of the thread itself, the it takes you to the end.

hope this helps

Haven't seen Poldark yet ....need spoiler alerts

Cqn see an icy film on the bird bath.  When we have no plums and pears this year, someone remind me it is probably coz they got frozen.

But on the positive side out Woody, a Forker posse is building.  Panda and I will be visiting on 14th June, hoping to meet up with Ggirl, if anyone else wants to join, then let us know

Welcome Fiona and MandaPanda

MP - Chelsea isn't great for plant shopping - you can place orders with nurseries, but they don't have plants for sale on site (no room).  But its full of  inspiration and ideas (which are free).  Never been to GW live, but I think there are more plant buying opportunities there

Fidget - stick to your guns and do it YOUR way - its your you say, they don't have to come.  Many years ago we had a "no speech", no "seating plan" wedding .....the two things that Mr Chicky hated.  He still says ours is the best wedding he's ever been too....ahhhh
