Bjay - they don't really climb -they grow tall and need tying to some sort of support

When we redid our garden about 9 years ago we didn't have a lot of money to spend on edging so we decided to use brick paviors - they have lasted really well

Bjay - pot your plugs into 3" pots and if you want them to be bushy pinch out the growing tip when there are 3 pairs of leaves - I have some Lady Boothby climbing fuchsias that are hardy - they have been in the border for about 4 years now.
Love the cake

Non Support of Poor Companies

Any company can make a mistake - it is what they do to rectify it that counts in my opinion.
I had ordered 2 lots of Lilies fron Van Meuwen and a collection of Lilies fron Thompson and Morgan. They are the same company by he way.
3packages arrived on the same day -each with a substitution voucher for ??5.00 and 20 ChinaGirl Lily bulbs instead of the ones I had ordered. I really didn't want 60 Lilies of the same variety so phoned Thompson and Morgan and said how disappointed I was. The outcome was that I was sent a different collection of Lily bulbs,I could keep the China Girl lilies and the 3 ??5.00 vouchers and they also gave me a complete refund. I would say this is good customer service when something has gone wrong.
I buy lots of plants through mail order and on the rare occasion when I have needed to complain I have always been happy with the way my complaints have been dealt with.

over wintering osteospurmum.

At the end of last summer I took cuttings from my Osreos as usual and put the parent plants in the cold greenhouse and just about forgot them . When I was sorting the greenhouse out a couple of weeks the pots of Osteospermums looked pretty grim but I noticed lots of new shoots on the bottoms of the stems so I cut the plants back and tidied them up then gave them a feed.Hopefully they will grow into good plants
