This was my wisteria covered pergola a couple of weeks ago,  It is still going strong and filling the garden with a beautiful scent.  We also noticed a blackbird is nesting above the table and chairs.

I have bought some small beetroot plants.  Ideally I would like to grow in a container.  Can I do this and does it need to be a deep container ?

Growing trailing tomatoes

Wonder if anyone can help me.  I am growing tumbling tomatoes for the first time this year and I don't know if I need to pinch out the side shoots like you need to do for the normal upright toms.


I've broken the main stem of my fuchsia standard help!

Has anyone grown Pixie clematis

Posted: 12/09/2013 at 08:12

I have been given some old GW mags and whilst reading through them I saw a pic of Pixie clematis.  It stated that it is low growing and to grow over the side of a pot. 

Just wondered if anyone has grown this before and whether they have found it does not climb and if they are growing it in a pot.  I must say it did look good and I have been thinking about getting one.

Good idea Break23, about the subtitles, I will certainly do that. 

Whilst flicking through the channels last night I noticed that ITV3 are repeating Alan Titchmarsh's Love Your Garden - the first series was brill as it visited peoples gardens and I can remember a beautiful cottage garden.  This was before they changed the format to how the programme is now and I do not watch anymore.   If anyone has ON DEMAND tv then you can catch up with the whole series of Love Your Garden which is what I shall be doing now the nights are drawing in and nothing else to watch on TV. 

Sorry BBC for mentioning ITV3 on your forum
