i have them in containers covered with newspaper with a couple of bricks on top which deters squirrels etc. and leave them at the end of the garden. I bring them near the house for a welcome show in the spring. They go back to the end of the garden after flowering as they produce good flowers if you give them a feed and let them die down naturally. I then plant up the pots with annuals for a summer display or courgettes etc.

Never mind squirrels, we have been invaded by jays(beautiful creatures).They nested here and produced two beauties. So the four of them are ruling the garden , displaying typical crow family behaviour. By the way, they love peanuts in shells and compete with the squirrels(they like shell peanuts too) but the squirrels ,so far have given  the jays a run for the peanuts!!

i think it is the weather, mine that is in the GH is doing very well, but the ones up the pergola have made lots of leaves and growth but no flowers.(Bit late now). Also, the seedlings (picture) look OK Quirkyboy. They should put on growth next spring and start climbing. They die down in winter and pop up again in the spring. Being tropical plants they react badly to lack of sunshine and WARMTH which was non existant this year! Every thing has been affected except.........our favourite topic, SLUGS. Lets hope next spring will be a scotcher.

Thank you Joe, I pay council tax too and I do not tell them what to do in their garden. Besides, they do not need to look at what I have in my garden. They even threatened to contact the council and complain about my "untidy" garden as I leave the berries etc. over winter for the birds!! Sad or what.

Has anyone grown...

Suttons have the seeds for £1.85p. Good luck.

You will Kate, it's hard graft and take a lifetime to acheive.The best bit is that you will enjoy creating it as long as you work with nature and remember that you are sharing your space with other LIVING things. Ask any oldie like me!

Oh my God,someone ,at last supporting what I have been saying for 50 years. I live in Surrey and know what you mean. I can't understand why people buy houses with gardens and then build 6" fences and walls. Then they concrete the garden and turn it into a monument patch with trees growing in pots.!! It is all to do with "control", I'm told.The trees are clipped and no wildlife is allowed in this NEAT patch. They have told me to REMOVE my compost bins(oh yeah) and water butts, as they are "ugly".Not aesthetic is the word! I could go on...!

Bye the way, they LIKE watching the wildlife in my garden. How sad.

PS I have just bought more compost bins and water butts.
