I always prefer to look and see if there's a thread already started on subject I need to know about, this time of the year you can get about 6 new OP on seed sowing or weather etc.

but as Dove says, we don't mind repeating ourselves.

I have wool cput into short lengths that I will put into a wire ball and hang on the bird feeders, we have a lot that will nest here, they seem to find bedding from somewhere.

Unsure about growing this climber

Good luck with that one Lizzie, you can see the growth on mine in just a few months, The bit at the bottom is where I had started to cut it away, it had grown right out to the greenhouse, monster!

I don't think it's as easy as it sounds, it's not....just chuck some seeds down. Monty Don done this and after a while it wasn't a success, I think he got rid of it. 

I agree with Nut, certain plants for certain soils, that's why you see only certain plants growing in one place, what's good for one is not good for another.

You're right Hosta, I I hadn't have kept cutting it, and that's twice a year I don't know how big it would have grown, it's about 12 ft there, and it was cut down in the spring.!

Soak them first in very hot water then try nicking with a pair of nail clippers, they only need a tiny bit nicked.

Here was mine, it grows this much from the Spring when it was cut right down. It's was in throes of being cut right down again and ventually out. It will cover a shed in one season though. I like the the flowers, it's just so big. 

edited to add, it's not a climber.
