This first batch of pics are of the late Alan Bloom's original Dell Garden, and then moving on down towards the water meadows and Foggy Bottom.



Can anyone help identify these plants?

No. 1 could be a forsythia

Hello folks 

A tired Dove reporting in - it was very warm at Bressingham and ice cream and  a cold fizzy drink was needed.   it was really hot and we stood under the sprinklers that were watering the Foggy Bottom to cool down.  The first few drops of rain started to fall as we got into our cars.  

I shall now attempt to upload a million photos  -  I may be gone some time ............

suggestions please

Don't know those ones Lily, but this is a pic of HF Young on my north-facing fence - it has huge blooms and flowers now and a second flush in September.

I agree with Nut - it needs an air gap, and the bed needs to have four structural sides, not three and the fence!  

Falling out with neighbours over boundaries can lead to much unhappiness so best get it sorted and let the neighbours know that you're doing that before they get upset.

I'd sow now, don't think they need to be indoors - maybe cool greenhouse to start but they're hardy so move them outside asap.
