Tallish Self Supporting Perenials

A bed 12" wide at the base of a wall is not a promising site for anything of any size. Anything planted there will need far more care and attention than plants in a wider bed. The foot of a wall will be in a rain shadow and susceptible to swirling buffeting gusts of wind. A wider bed will allow for mulching which will retain moisture. It will also allow for denser planting so the plants can support each other.

Good morning all. On phone so smilies limited
I would've slept well had the loo in the en suite not developed mind of its own and made a noise for five mins or so every hour. How come I was the only person it woke?
Now I'm up drinking coffee and listening to the jackdaws in the inglenook chimney.

Can't really tell without leaves - wait just a few weeks and we'll have some information to go on.

If you put a gun to my head and said "Guess!"  I'd say it might just possibly be an ornamental pyrus, but that is just a guess.

Does he still have long plaited hair? Haven't seen him for years!

 

Yes  - he lives not far from here and we use the same supermarket.  Not sure if he'd be available for regular GW - his wife has been very ill and he spends a lot of time with her and their young twins.

I think he's great on GQT but not sure that he'd be right for GW full-time.
