I was thinking of putting some in my newly sown meadow (only a small area) becasue I love it so and for the wildlife but now I'm having second thoughts!  Might go with one of the cutivars mentioned instead

Kate it's been a joy to actually give Mum some things I'd aquired from elsewhere for the 1st time this year

Must find out about Beechgrove if it genders such excitement and ice cream

Garden arches planting - help needed

Posted: 03/05/2012 at 19:42

Thanx Pam - I'll look into those

And all of Obelixx's suggestions for clematis - I'm with Trish for worrying about the arch looking bare but I got a group 2 and a group 1 from GW last year (so still only small this year) and I can hardly believe the growth rate on the one I chopped to the soil in March!

So I reckon I'll plant it up the arch and leave the seed heads on and hope for some frosts to pretty it up with maybe the Akebia on the other side

What's the weather like in your area?

Seaside Oldie - best £20 I've ever spens is automatic openers for the windows - at least they have a chance at getting some ventilation.

Looks like the north has got it easiest today and tomorrow - we'll miss the worst of the rain and it's not too cold either.  V tempted to plant out the Sweetpease this wkend but there's a threat of grass frost so I'm not sure....

I had to give up on my Freecycle group becasue it was clogging my email and I couldn't change the settings.  But I've joined Freegle now so I'll look out for requests - every little helps when you're starting out

Def wouldn't put anything outside my house - if they weren't missiles they'd be strewn all over the pavement & road, like the litter that blows in my garden

Seaside Oldie, I'm donating mine to the World Environment Day event at the office - did it last year and they went in seconds and raised money to plant trees under the Woodland Trust scheme

Can't allow myself to buy plants other than the occasional P&P only GW offer so I content myself with 'shopping' at my Mum & Aunt's cold frames

It's working out well becasue Aunty is getting too infirm to garden at all now so she's happy they live on in a new garden - and in return I'm starting to make colourful pots each season that she can see from her window so everyone's happy
