Those photos are a couple of years old, and taken when the garden was looking pretty good. I'm in the middle of completely re-landscaping the lower half of the garden, but a back injury has slowed me down somewhat. The shed/summerhouse was already in the garden when we bought the house, I wager it would have cost the previous owners £1000 or so to buy new?
The clematis on the archway is Dr Ruppel, and is one of my favourite plants in my garden. Its currently in its second flowering stage of the year, even though its October!!
FairyGirl, I haven't changed the planting in the planter as I'm giving the climbing hydrangea a chance to prove itself. So far its failed to flower, probably because of the conditions/aspect? Same for the clematis planted next to it, it flowers OK but nothing special. The planter is east facing which is probably why?
