Trailing plant for chimney pot.

If the pot is big enough, how about Clematis integrifolia Rosea  http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/clematis-rosea.html  - not evergreen, but flowering from June to September and happy in the shade.  Cut it hard back every spring and feed it and it'll be glorious

The person who would know how to do it all would be Italophile, but he's got his own place in Italy already

Just thought I'd say that it turns the right way up when I click on it, but I suppose that may be down to the software on my laptop

Hello folks - niece collected and fed - now she and OH are in the studio making a piece of collaborative art.  

When she arrived there were frogs hopping about all over the lawn in the bright sunshine - we spotted at least six !  Don't know if Hissing Sid had been about again and that's why they were so active on the lawn, but things have calmed down now and all but one are happily sunbathing amongst the pond weeds.  The one that isn't tried to catch a wasp and we watched him spit it out - the wasp crawled away and the frog sat in the pond looking a bit disgruntled - then suddenly he leapt out of the pond and across the lawn, presumably in search of something else for lunch. 

Sorry to hear of poorly gardeners and baby with delicate digestive system and hope all is well for everyone very soon ((hugs))

Fidget - that sounds marvellous   We shall expect marvellous photos when you get back. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Just off to fetch niece - wish us luck!!!
