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..


And how it looked last year..

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

Thanks jatnikapyar. Whilst it does look nice in the summer it has little to no interest in the winter. I concentrate on trying to get the best look for me in the summer, and im happy for the garden to look bare in the winter whilst resting.

Click on thie following photo of how it looked when I moved into the house 5 yrs ago, quite uninspiring..


And last sumer..



Heres another of my clematis (Nelly Moser) growing in a planter I made from floorboards..



Trees that provide cover for a small garden please!!

For a smallish tree have a look at Amelanchire Lamarckii (June Berry Tree)

Actually yes, I do recall sprinkling sone clematis food around the soil. I shall have to remember to do the same this year.

Thanks GG. It really performed well last year and surprised me with the amount of flowers. Thou it had spent the previous 2 years in a pot being moved aroun my garden. Im hoping now that it has settled that it will do just as well or better this year.
