climbing plants

Posted: 16/12/2012 at 19:27

I wouldn't recommend armandii as it gets very large  - and you will be continually cutting it back if you only want 6-7ft. Any large flowered  summer flowering clematis  would be good as you would cut it down to the base each spring. eg The President

Maybe you could underplant with some bulbs for interest at other times of the year or if you have a large pot - put in an evergreen shrub and then grow a small climber up through it. Can't think of a combination off hand but I'll have a think...

List of plants reproduced / reproduction by runners

I agree. If you could post a good picture of a leaf or leaves and a section of runner and root you will be more likely to get an answer.

Wow! How many clips are there? The swans, the different designs, the methods of turning inside out - what alot of info. Very interesting and inspiring.

Sorry, no Spanish. Wonderful planters - what have they been coated with to make them smooth and which paint was used? This is a really inspriational thread.

Well done gardengirl...I really think I would like to have go and your tips will certainly help.

What's the weather like in your area?

Drove from Essex to Heathrow and back today in very low clouds and it never stopped raining - spray was really bad on M25 this afternoon. Now after 6pm (home safe and sound) and it is still raining...thinking for those in areas with flooding or near rivers

What is this Seedling?

Maybe this is too obvious a question but did you or your daughter ask Brownies what the seed was?

Did you not ask at the garage if they could turn the tyre for you? They've got the machinery and if they have a slack 10 minutew - and what business doesn't at the moment...I'm sure if they were good enough to give you tyres, they would be approschsble - good customer relations etc

Growing plants in winter?

Posted: 18/11/2012 at 20:38

Good advice above.If I were you I'd plant up some bulbs for indoors and out - hyacinths, daffodils etc. Lots of places are selling off their bulbs at the moment and as long as they are firm you still have time to plant. Then you can watch things primed to grow at this time of year do their thing! It gives you a reason to look forward to the dark days of January - watching the shoots and then the buds and flowers of crocuses, snowdrops, early daffodils...You can take cuttings - look on the GW page for 'what to do now; then there are all the jobs we 'never get around to' which will give you a head start when spring does get here....
