Climbing hydrangea does take a year or two to get going and I think you want something a bit quicker than that so I would go with the other suggestions that have been made already.

identity please

Japanese Anemone not happy

They do seem to take a year or two to get established.  My best ones (pink) are against an east facing fence which remains dampish so they get early sun but avoid the baking hot sun.  I also have a white one on a west facing fence which just about survives each year, but I have noticed it has crept under the fence and is doing well in my next door neighbours garden and it is therefore facing east there like my pink one.  Give yours lots of drinks and maybe consider moving it in the late Autumn if it doesn't thrive.

If they have made you poorly I definitely wouldn't risk eating any more.

Fridgetbones - G. Phaeum is supposed to be good for dry shade.  I purchased a couple this year from a local 'open garden' and was assured they were good for that position.  I will find out next year if that is the case.

Hardy geraniums are my number one favourite plant - such good 'doers' and so many different varieties for shade or sun.  Lovely picture Verdun.

when to prune?

Posted: 15/07/2014 at 19:33

Try to hang on till August Marc as you may have little birds still nesting.  They usually say late winter to early spring for a heavy prune but you could do a tidy up prune next month. 

I give up!

There is still time yet Annie.  Mine have only just started producing beans - enough for supper yesterday.  So give them lots of water to drink and while you enjoy your pea crop you may find the beans suddenly start producing.
