Potted Hydrangea

I think the colour of the flower is determined by the acid/alkaline soil. But im not sure if this affects all hydrangea plants?

Its called ArtStudio available for iPad & iPhone. I have the free version on my iPhone but the paid version must have more features? The free version allows you to sketch as Joe did.

Susan Bradley, I think the iPad app that Joe was using is called art studio.

discodave, thanks. The first thing I did when moving into the house (and before unpacking) was get rid of the narrow borders & straight edges of the lawn. Instead I gave the lawn some curved edges which helped make the borders deper.

I did grow dahlias in pots that year, and I might try doing the same again this year.

A very nice looking garden wintersong

 

Bunny, thats what I still do and it gives me ideas for changes. Dont be too jealous though, Ive only taken photos of the good bits of my garden, there are areas of my garden that dont look so good, but I neglected to photograph those bits!

I found it useful seeing photos of peoples whole gardens on this forum, as opposed to individual plants. It gave me inspiration and ideas for my garden.

Heres my garden that I inherited when we moved into our house in 2007..

BrummieBen, I didnt realise there was such a thread, Ill do that.

creeps, this is a good reference site for clamatis plants..

I dont know where you are in the country but you could contact a specialist clamatis nursery such as Taylors in Doncaster and ask if any are good for insects etc
