where do i look at photos in the gallery.the only ones i could find where of jo swift at a flower show...not ordinary gardeners gardens which is what i am interested in.thanks

I think you go to Galleries on the first menu and when Joe Swift's Gallery appears at the top of the page scroll down and there are more galleries below e.g. Wildlife / Fruit and Veg etc... hope I'm right...

Looking for flowers to 'fill in' a border

Posted: 01/03/2013 at 15:49

What is your soil like? And which direction does your border face?

Some types of Campanula might do and you get different colours. You could try looking on these sites for some ideas and then go to the garden centre with a list... with the rhs site you can put in exactly what you're looking for and also your type of garden - soil, exposure, etc...  and you don't have to join either. Hope this helps.

Climbing rose -  Zephirine Drouhin lovely perfume, thornless and happy even on a north wall see link for picture.  I have it and Madame Alfred Carriere and both are lovely. Also have hydrangea petiolaris but it has been slow to take off. They are all growing on my north or north west facing and I have 2 clematis on my Northeast facing walls. One is Clematis Comtesse de Bouchard but I can't remember what the other one is<span style="font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: xx-small;"><span style="font-size: 13px;"><span style="font-family: Times New Roman;"><span style="font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: xx-small;">.<span style="font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: xx-small;">

Ok Many thanks I'll check for suckers and see if I can find any.  Do I need to keep the softwood cuttings I've taken in my greenhouse?

Lavenders

I have found that my lavender tended to get very woody after 3 - 4 years and I took lots of cuttings last year but I also tried "sinking" a couple of them into tall pots last year and am waiting to see how that worked.  It is supposed to stimulate new growth in the plants at the base... but I'm not fully convinced that it will work.
