i have it in my garden and i have always know it as woodruff.. well that is what my Granddad callled it..

dunno if it is the proper name.. it spread very easily each year it comes up and i find it will tolerate any conditions.

i have been told that ceanothus come in a tree and ground cover plant.. and i think they are right.. my neighbour 2 day had one that was a tree while mine is just spreading over ground..

can i make it grow like a tree if i prune it right?

@wintersong.. your garden is looking lovely.. what is that plant around bottom of your clematis.. is it an iris in bud or something else..

Also like the way your path moves round the garden... just looking for tips as trying to decide on what mine will be like..

@obelixx.. many thanks for you pictures and overall review of chelsea.. although i am very disaapointed with the coverge this year.. the gardens that i have seen are good, though the planting theme has been quite loose this year.. more on structures rahter than plants..

i have to admit i am loving the use of dry stone walling this year.. it is so beautiful to look at and so natuarl... i do not like the red wooden structures on Joe's garden at all.. too dominating for me.. and Andy's garden is very good.. love the use of different materials yet all tie together.. the structure in the water is growing on me alittle.

i love the water feature in thte garden i can not recall.. it is black and just pops up with a ring of ripple and spreads out.. that is very good.

the cacti stand and carniverous plant stand are great.. not been showed them on tv and love the arranged flower photos.. not seen any of them on tv either except one alans litle table.. my also love the big snail ornament.. great!

but overall it does seem the buddies of Mr Titchmarsh are getting a very lot of coverage..  it really has been the worst coverage this year..

What's the weather like in your area?

Posted: 25/05/2012 at 13:01

@shrinking Violet.. i dunno why.. but as soon as the sun is out.. its "lets get the barbi out" today..  to end up with burnt sausages etc..what about cooking when its not out.

i think it goes back to the early man.. when they would make a fire and cook on it.. it is a natural instinct.. shame they do not the gas hob burner in the smame light

and once again last night... the same old gardens on show.. where is the coverage of other gardens there.. it is very bad this year.. or is it just me..

Chelsea!

@wintersong..your welcome

I must admit that i have not seen much of the courtyard gardens or small gardens.. keep seeing the same damn ones all the time.. or going other gardens of famous people.. dont get me wrong.. i love looking at gardens.. but i dont seem to have seen much of the chelsea ones this year.. i must be fast forwarding to much or something
