I think we are going to be here a while. The garden is small, the traditional long terrace shape. I'm going to run out of space so some climbers will give me some more privacy as well as more growing room.

Gardens can be grown anywhere and I think I'm always going to be a girl! Good to meet you aym

I'm a girl How about you?

The jackmanii was bought a few years ago for my first garden it's survived a couple of moves and it looks happy where it is now. I thought I'd killed it last year by pinching it out, but there are some green shoots starting on the lower bits so I it looks like I got away with it.

I like how our plants have stories and histories attached to them

My first attempt at layering. I've covered the top now with some stones to try and help with mosture and it's very hot up there and watering will be a pain


 When I was up there I pulled a lot of it across to grow over our shed so it should spread over so we get the benefit our side.


 


 Took a few cuttings as well, a couple have drooped ever so slightly but so far so good with the others. Thanks for your help
