You would be most welcome to join in any of the threads Jennie, don't wait just until you have a problem!

i did notice your first ever post was never answered, that doesn't usually happen, there's always someone (usually always!) who can answer you.

I agree with Philippa, too late for fruit, sow some more seeds at the end of February  and start again.

Thanks Verdun, I will pop them in a greenhouse when the frosts come and plant out next Spring. 

Evergreen climber?

Fairly flat,,,that was not! I think a clematis or two would be best.

I wouldn't recommend Glasnevin Steve, it will be a huge tree before you know it. We had to cut ours down a few weeks ago, it has been cut right back every Spring, and even though it's only been there three years, this was it in August. Not that pretty either. As you see the height here, so you get that in depth, I was forever chopping it back as it grabs you as you walk past it!



Is this scurfy rose scale?

I seem to remember my mum painting this scale with methylated spirit, or is that not allowed these days. One coat used to do the trick.

The butterflies and bees love the dahlias.

 Hostas Dahlia still going strong


This is the top garden, never usually shown! It was a fantastic day yesterday.


The grasses around the pond have some lovely fluffy seed heads

 Rudbeckia just catching a Queen Vic Lobelia.

 I have always got pansies in various stages.

 I have lots of these bees now, they are very pale coloured.

what size pots now Lyn?  You will lose them if you plant them out now I think.  My own rooted plants vary from a few inches in 9cm pots to bigger in 3 litres and they will all have some protection either by fleece or gh.  Those in the garden will stay out and I will know which are hardiest.  Black Adder and Sangria have survived 2 years outside already

they are in four inch pots, deep ones.
