Morning Yvie, ahhh I may try growing it up against one of the fences then! 

I do love Jasmine... so pretty! 

My clematis seem fine, regardless of the frost. I'm sure yours will be fine :-). 

Have a great day x

LD, thank you so much for all the advice!! 

I live in Nottinghamshire. So I suppose it may have to move back into my greenhouse 😒😒. 

Hosta - WOW 😍😲😲

Liriodendron - you're not being nosey at all!! Any input would be very welcomed! I'm putting down turf on a lot of the garden so Elijah can play. He loves being outside!! 

I'm having a border down the right side of my garden as this is the south facing part. I'm adding more paving to carry on and go under the kitchen window. 

I'm having a raised bed at the end of the path to the right, however, I'm not sure whether to grow veg or flowers in this bit yet. 

I'm also making a little area near the paving as an ornamental grasses section, I LOVE grasses! I can't wait to share all this with you all! 

At the moment, I have two clematis growing up the arch - they are small at the moment. On the opposite side, I have a jasmine  inverleith... however, am I right in thinking this isn't fully hardy???? I did just put it in my little PVC greenhouse over winter and it's fine. 

I also did that with a chrysanthemum and a pelagornium - which I'm still in shock that they're growing back!

Wonky - thank you :-). Gardening keeps me sane - to a degree 😂😂. How lucky are you having a £1 perennial sale... I'd be there straight away! I have to hold back when I go to garden centres!! I'm always attracted to the unusual bits and bobs 😃😃. 

Where abouts are you at Wonky? Wondering if the garden centre is anywhere near me - doubtful I bet!!

Morning all :-).

My mum's giving me a break from little man today, so she's taking him at lunch and he's staying at hers. Gives me a chance to do some work on my garden! 

This ^^ is what the garden was like when I first moved in. Mainly full of weeds and not level at all! And full of cats 😣😣. I love cats, and all animals. But a pain for the garden! They love using mine as a toilet. 


So, this is the horrendous sight that greets me in the morning at the moment 😂😂. A load of dead grass and weeds as I decided to kill off the lot to level it all off and start again. 

Atleast I have my garden arch 😂😂. £6 from wilkos - not the best but it keeps me happy 😃. I've got gorgeous blue fairy lights around it.... 

Hope everyone's ok! Xx

Obelixx - that sounds lovely :-). I walk a lot with my little lad in his pram. Love looking at people's gardens as I'm walking past 🤑

Hosta - wow that is a lot!!!! My question is... how do you keep slugs and snails away! They must love your garden haha!! 

I mentioned a while ago I have the beautiful "Elijah Blue" grass but it's not looking too fantastic at the moment. It's touch and go as to whether it's going to come out with any new fresh growth but it's not looking promising!! 

Hope everyone's ok and had a good day!
