Hi Beaus Mum - If you can watch the last Beechgrove gardening programme you can see what they did with posts and rope to distract the eye from an unsightly cut leylandii hedge.  It's on BBC2 on Sunday mornings which you can watch on iPlayer.  I think they were talking about the Rambling Rector rose which is well known for growing quickly and rampantly plus other things.  I will watch it later today to see what else they were planning to grow along it.

Crumbs - that looks like a house not a shed.  I suppose you could ram posts at intervals into the ground with rope swags in between to grow climbers along.  Neighbours can be so thoughtless at times.

I always leave mine as I think they look attractive for quite some time after they finish flowering and as you also say in the winter with a frost on them are so pretty.  One of my pink ones is really large now and when it flowers reminds me of candy floss.

i hate flies!

I was bitten on my hand by a horse fly when on my allotment yesterday and my hand has swollen up - it's amazing what a teeny weeny creature can do.  

Does anyone know what this is?
