Hello Woo2 - I am in Surrey.

I am looking forward to seeing your garden

Kate - I am looking forward to your 'after'

I am going in the garden now - surprise,surprise - it isn't raining - yet!

I am going to make up some more tubs and baskets

You could put a Cherry  Tomato - Sungold is a good one- in one corner and 3 canes tied like a wigwam with  dwarf mangetout peas at the other end - Mr Fothergills sells seeds- and there will still be room for some lettuce leaves and radishes in front .You can buy mixed pkts of Lettuce leaves that grow in a few weeks !

Garden arches planting - help needed

I think Akebias are quite robust plants - ours is on the fence by a gate which is north facing and it gets pruned regularly  to keep it in it's place so over an arch it would have more space .My son gave it to me a few years ago instead of an Easter egg - it is also called the chocolate vine and is supposed to smell of chocolate

Last year I bought Akebia 'Cream Form' - it has had a few flowers this year - much smaller than the other one but very beautiful

Garden arches planting - help needed

Posted: 03/05/2012 at 05:53

I have Clematis on both our arches. By the front gate - Comtesse de Bouchard and in the back garden Etoile violette. Trachelospermum is evergreen with a gorgeous perfume but it may be too strong a grower for your arches.Clematis armandii is also evergreen but too rampant.If you didn't mind bare arches in winter Morning Glory and Cobaea scandens are wonderful for covering an arch.

Wintersong - it is sad to lose plants but as you say you now have a lovely new space to fill

We have sorted a few borders this year and I am pleased to have more planting spaces

I pricked out psb,Kale  and Primo cabbages today and also planted up some tubs

The NGS County organiser called this morning with all our posters etc. for our Open Day - makes me a feel a  bit nervous

Wonderful photos again

As much as I would like to take the credit it wasn't me who identified the beautiful Aquilegia
