Plants for lightweight arch

Posted: 19/11/2014 at 22:57

Philippa smith2, my hop not only flowers but self seeds - usually in my veg patch. The golden form I have read is not  supposed to come true from seed but mine does! I have given several away to friends.

Annietts, I also have a David Austin rose on an arch - it's almost thornless and well behaved. Not the best of names, it is called Mortimer Sackler but is a lovely rose. I've seen it grown up an obelisk at RHS Hyde Hall, a good endorsement!

I love my Cornus kousa when it flowers,  the strawberry like  fruits disappoint me as they are few and far between but it is just colouring up beautifully for autumn.

Some camellias flower at this time of year. November through to spring is flowering time dependent on the variety.

I have my golden hop on a light weight arch, cut it to the ground every spring and have never had any problem. Mine must be a weakling from your descriptions! I'm really surprised.

Something that will die down each autumn/winter and then regrow in spring - that way it doesn't get too big and thick. A golden hop or a clematis which you cut back each spring.

Done.

 

Constructive criticism from the teacher in me which I hope you don't mind me making -Two spelling mistakes which you should correct before submission Question 6 - sheers should read shears. Question 10 the spelling of 'existing' is incorrect and I also think you should rework the final phrase in the question.

Good luck with your project.

Front "garden" needs some inspiration!

Ferns do not produce pollen and the geraniums have short flowering period - therefroe produce pollen for a short time with more interest through their foliage.

I'd plant lots of tete a tete narcissi and some low growing tulips like - Little red riding hood now to give a lovely show from Feb/March. An evergreen geranium - Geranium macrorrhizum would offer you low maintenance ground cover with interest throughout the year not leaving any place for cats' calling cards! A few sedums (in sun) dotted through would add height, texture and flowers at a different time of year or as suggested above some ferns(shade).
