I would have a beautiful Magnolia tree - don't have a big enough garden to have one but love them when they get really big.
Wisteria in my garden today, just beautiful.
mahonia likes a shady spot and in the winter you get the lovely yellow flowers and scent. Can get tall, mine is about 5ft.
Don't give up Lilly3, I really thought mine would not do anything but they are just coming up, maybe it is too cold for them to come up yet. Hopefully it will warm up soon.
Both have suddenly sprouted into life. Just shows a little patience................
Maybe if I say north of Ipswich
Do you think someone could add me please, I have tried but no luck. I am in Eye, North Suffolk thanks
I have James Galway which is a David Austin shrub/climber. It grows to about 5ft which they say is suitable as a small climber. It has a wonderful scent and has never suffered with any disease.
Hi Blairs I planted them a couple of inches deep - is that deep enough or too deep? I have been keeping them just damp and yes the tubers are solid.
Thanks everyone, yes will persevere as you say and keep hoping for signs of life.
