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 🤑
