 I've just made this from old bits of wood. Lined sides with weed suppressant polythene ( not the porous membrane) to protect wood from soil, I have painted exposed wood inside and out with cuprinol. Can't wait to plant it up.

Thanks pansyface, I already have red roses, fancy some pink or white if possible. I do have clotted cream jasmine which might look nice as well as climbing Mrs booth by fuschia?

Which scented roses would grow well over this new arch?

and any other scenoted climbers for inspiration?

They have flowered already, its just the leaves..just wondered if this was the natural cycle. There aren't any buds left. And stems and leaves don't look rotten.

the leaves on my oriental lilies in pots outside have turned yellow. Is this normal for autumn? Should I overwinter them in an unheated greenhouse or are they ok outside?

hello, I recently went to Wisley and saw two beautiful varieties of fuschia, which were orange and white. I couldn't find them in the plant shop there and wondered if anyone could name any variety of fuschia which have white and orange/ coral flowers? 

I would be most grateful. Thankyou.

What kind of garden injuries have you had

I fell face first into a patch of stinging nettles whilst trying to pull the damn thing up! Note to self...don't clear nettles wearing shorts and vest t shirt! Thank goodness for my aloe Vera plant in the kitchen! My face swelled up like a balloon!
