Climbing prickly plant for fence

Posted: 08/05/2015 at 16:22


My pyracantha grows free standing and doesn't need support. It won't stick to the fence it grows as a shrub. It can grow quickly when established but not uncontrollable with secateurs or a small saw. I believe the yellow and orange berried ones are less vigorous than the red berried ones.

Gg I have two glass GH's  The old one gets less sun so it suits the cumbers, new replacement one ( my wooden one rotted after 22 yrs) is for GH toms, peppers, chillies etc. I also grow outdoor medium sized cherry toms, any surplus I freeze whole and use for cooking in the winter. I also make gummy tomatoes..Jamie Oliver recipe

Hi GWRS I empty the sacks when harvesting then re-fill with the same compost to which I add organic potato feed and sow my carrots. My carrots seem to like potato feed

I am just finishing harvesting chard and p s broccoli. I sweat chard down like spinach, drain it and squash it and freeze in small balls and eat it in the winter.

I have runner beans, French climbing and barlotti beans to go in. Small area so things have to climb.

Radishes growing well as is garlic (Autumn sown) and shallots.

Lettuce in GH ready to go out after frosts.

Toms, cumbers, peppers, chillies, aubergine, courgette and a gourd thing seeds bought in Greece. Spuds in sacks and will use sacks for late carrots, less root fly later. 

Need to do my spinach and beetroot ASAP as well as my bunching spring onions and rocket, and coriander and basil for GH 

It keeps blinking raining on me  However the soil is lovely and warm so battle stations ASAP   

Hope you all have a great productive season

Hi, what a chatty lot you've been today

Voted, done SM shop for mum, pulled up the p s broccoli ready to make a bean bed, potted on my aubergines and liatris and then done some weeding. 

Time to consider what I'm doing with salmon for tonight's meal.

Have a good evening all
