you could sow some seeds now, and protect the young plants over the winter and put them into position next spring, the plants you already have in the garden you will be able to take basal cutting next spring , to increase your plants if its a particular good one, I adore lupins but find they only last a few years.

Any ideas?

maybe a viburnum of some sort

they will take a time to germinate usually between 21 to 45 days don't despair, they will  come up, and its always nice to nurture a few more plants, next year you can put them where you want them, as if they seed themselves is anyones guess, any free plants are always a bonus. I have just sown some yellow ones free of gardeners news.

hi can anyone give some suggestions, the leaves have started to get brown spots on my early pots, is it blight, or maybe a deficiency , first time growing in a bag, so any advice would be great

I agree this dvd is fab, I watch it often when the weather is bad , torrential rain and it gives me a little ray of sunshine, and just to see some beautiful blooms, and Geoff had such a wonderful way of explaining and presenting .. Come on summer

well I will wave the monty flag, I find his laid back, make mistakes sometimes form of gardening inspiring, as a new gardener, his approach is easy to follow, people are always quick to criticise, he is in fact  a self taught gardener, journalist , not a actor who feels easy reading a script, so this may come across as bumbling along, if you want to see a gardener look at their hands ?????.......

Where are YOU?

wow that one big tree, and like you I would get rid, dig in pleanty of compost, organic matter into the soil, the tree has most probably taken all the life from any soil, you can always use pots to start of with, give the garden a year and then you will see where the sun comes in , look around other peoples gardens in the area and see what they are growing. Its all good fun and trial and error, keep a look out in the local garden centres for reduced plants, usually with a bit of tlc they come back to life .
