Vertical gardening ideas

Posted: 05/03/2014 at 19:24

I intend doing this here. I want to grow 'downwards' as it will take a while for climbers and shrubs to cover all the bare wood. I hope I'll get some of it done this summer - last year  I built raised beds  and did lots of other things - so, now that I've got most of the beds planted up, and while the new extension is getting built,  I might get time to do troughs for fences! I've already bought small ivies and other bits and pieces and know how I'm doing the construction of the boxes.  I will do pix as I go along

Many thanks David  

Thought I'd live dangerously and try a couple of different varieties this year! 

I had a little scout around a few sites recently for creams/whites but reckoned you'd be able to suggest something nice.

I'm sure I'll have plenty of packets of seed I won't use. I live about half an hour from Jeannie so  if you want to PM me Rosie, I'd be happy to forward you my email to give Jeannie if she would like me to help her with organising/posting/ etc.

Marion - the pot of little species tulips are so lovely 

You're garden so well ahead already. Looking forward to seeing all your 'golden moments'

David - we all know you don't have to prove anything to anyone. 

Sad when people want to stir, isn't it?

Do you grow different varieties each year or do you stick with favourites? I grew Cathy last year - a cream with lovely scent, but was a little disappointed with the colour sometimes- it was a bit 'muddy'. Is there a white or cream variety you can recommend?

multi purpose compost Andrew 

My new borders are the same Loganberry. Patience is what you need more than anything!
