If you wanted something to cascade over the top you could plant aubretia or delosperma.

Grape pruning

Posted: 02/06/2015 at 11:34

My vine is planted outdoors and is a wine grape. At the moment it has a lot of new laterals which will be cut back before they get any longer. The fruit laterals are forming and some will be pruned out. As Dave says do what works for your plant, it will let you know if it doesn't like what you have done and enjoy your grapes.

Bargain Buy of 2015

What has been your best buy? Mine was a flaming katy for £1.00 and a slipper orchid £9.99. Never seen one 'in the flesh' before so hope I can keep it going.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
