Wooden Pergola

Posted: Today at 14:47

Hi Supernoodle, I agree with Nut, expect for the wisteria. I have a north facing pergola and I so wanted a wisteria. It did not like me at all and after 5years I had to move it. I think, despite giving it all it demanded, it just sat there and sulked as it did not like the north aspect !! So, do a bit of research and chose your plants wisely. Not only will you enjoy planting but watching them grow. I have ALL the plants in planters and they have done well. A few took longer to establish but the patience was rewarding. Do use BIG deep pots and they will  work(within reason). I have up to three plants per pot and surprisingly, they are Ok. As Nut says, clematis and roses are good companions and I have chosen ones that flower at different times.

Besides the clematis and roses I have Rhiochiton, chocolate vine,coboea,golden hop, grapes and Acinidia Arguta.  

The whole project is quite time consuming as it needs regular pruning,watering,feed and admiring!!

So Noodle, have fun

I have wild garlic and am happy to send you plants. Do PM me. I enjoy having it in my garden, and, it makes lovely pesto, milder than the real garlic. I make it in the spring and freeze it. It is delicious in stir frys and the young leaves are lovely in salads. The white flowers are a welcome sight in early spring too. Don't worry, it will not destroy your hedge plants and is shallow rooted so you do not need a Fiskars tool to remove it.

To each his own eh? One persons "weed" is anothers' joy

trying to identify this shrub, have tried with two pictures, hope it helps

Buying seeds online/eBay

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 21:17

This year I decided to try Amazon for seeds and plants  on a neighbours  advise and was pleasantly surprised. They were miles cheaper and the seeds have all come up.I certainly will order again from them.

Thompson & Morgan - issues!

Well done T&M, you have done it again......but I don't blame you at all. We gardeners are very trusting simple folk ,so you treat us like fools. What is the point of your e-mail address when you do not respond, or, we get a stand reply which means nothing. Even when we ring we get sarcastic responses like, ...."oh really.....". But fear not,once bitten twice shy, we will soon vote with our feet and go elsewhere. This forum will help us do so. Smaller suppliers like SUTTONS and FOTHERGILLS, and even AMAZON can fulfill their commitment, and their seeds actually do germinate. Try emulating them, or, are you making a lot of dosh out of  your BAD "customer care" as you call it on your e-mail address? 

What AMAZES  me is that GW still 'recommends' your site by offering 'free plants'  from your sites. You are onto a winner, aren't you? Surely you must be making money from our 'P&P' AND getting rid of your surplus plants. It's win, win all the way, isn't it?
