I am looking at changing a part of my garden next year,this part of the garden is only 5 foot by 5 foot and I am thinking of planting grasses.

It only gets the sun in the morning and the soil is heavy with part soil and part clay.

anyone got any grasses?

need some ideas of what to buy.

looks like some kind of marketing.

companies get your email address this way and sell it on to hundreds of other companies.

over the past two years I have planted over 20 clematis plants

The first ones I planted are now over 20 feet long running along my garden wall,the following year I planted some below the first ones which have grown into the first ones so I get 4 different coloured flowers running along the same wall.

I have now put a trellis up in the middle of my back garden and I am going to see how many different climber plants and colours I can get off a trellis which is only 10 feet long. I have already planted two clematis and one Jasmine all of which are different colours,I can plant the trellis on both sides and are now thinking of a couple of honeysuckles and a climbing rose.

The trellis is only 10 feet long but the border on both sides is three feet long so I am going to use canes for the climbers which will be planted three foot from the trellis.

So will it work?

any other climbers what I can use?

I was going to put up a trellis to act as as a screen from next door,but with the problems cost and getting one made to fit I have decided to put up hedging,

has anyone got a cherry laurel in the garden and will it do the job of screening.



Wooden planter for clematis.

Clematis is a beautifully varied flowering plant, available in a multitude of colours and flower sizes, however all Clematis fall into one of 3 distinct pruning groups: No Prune (Group 1), Light Prune (Group 2), and Hard Prune (Group 3).

Group 1: Early Flowering. Typically blooming in winter and spring, these varieties flower on the previous year's growth only, so if you need to remove damaged stems or control the size of the plant, the best time would be as soon as they have finished flowering. Included in this group are Alpina, Macropetala, Montana, and Evergreen varieties.

Group 2: Large Flowers. Typically larger flowers grow out on new shoots from last year's growth in late spring and summer. Some of these will occasionally display a second bloom at the tips of the current year's growth in late summer and autumn. These varieties should be pruned in spring, right back to where there are strong and healthy buds, before they start their active growth period. New flowering stems will be produced from this architecture of previous growth.

Group 3: Late Flowering. Group 3 Clematis only flower on current year's growth. These blooms tend to display from summer through to late autumn. These varieties are arguably the easiest to prune, as you basically cut it right down to about 20cm (8ins) above ground level in spring before they begin their active growth period, removing all of the previous year's growth.

Hi all.

I am after some advice about a couple of shrubs I need.

First these must be evergreen.

Grows up to 6 foot high and 3 foot deep

With flowers

To be used as a barrier

Soil will depend on what shrubs I get as I will be replacing the soil with the best soil I can get my hands on.

Part shade

May be asking for too much,but worth a try.

Help needed to create a new garden

I would also love to her out if I knew where she lives,I live in sunderland and if tatiana lives nearer me I would also help out.

free plants off garden centres would be one of the first things I would do,but this would depend on the location.
