Good to see you Lyn - thinking of you ((hugs))  You may have felt cut off, but warm wishes were heading your way.

Something to cover a pergola that doesn't drop flowers

What about a vine?  Hopefully you'd pick and eat all the grapes so they wouldn't fall and make a mess. 

The flowers are very small and so wouldn't make too much mess when they fall. 

If I were you I think I'd look at the Alpina varieties of clematis - they have flowers of course, and lose most of their leaves in the autumn, but in my experience they don't make too much of a mess and aren't too rampant.

Hi Minosgardener and welcome   Etiquette??? on here???  No such thing - all are welcome to just jump straight in and tag along

I've never done hot composting, but Artjak is a Compost Master trained by the local authority - if she doesn't know I'm sure she'll know someone who does.

She'll probably be along in a bit ....
