That would be some veg patch Verdun!!!

I grow just nasturtiums and tagettes round veg. Nothing with toms, and chives in clumps dotted amongst the carrots.

Yes just pop something else in there, no probs

Can anyone recommend a grass for a novice?

Verdun, I would love it if you would post some piccys of your grasses, I would love a couple of those really tall ones, but they do have to be wind resistant, we are almost 1000ft up and very very exposed.

I know you can see them on the net but its not the same as seeing them in real life gardens.

Thank you.

They will be fine once they are in the ground, they spread to about 4ft in all directions and will be loaded with lovely ones later on, nice lot of muck around them and they will romp away.

I had 4 plants last year, 2 would have done as they filled an 8 x 8 bed.








4 plants last year and had a freezer full of ghem, besides dinners and grated in cakes.

I couldnt find anything on the net by that name, could it be a bay .

None of the fast growing climbers like to be restricted to pots really.

If you have had it for 3 years it should be miles long and covering house shed, walls etc

It grows in any aspect so I wouldnt think the position has anything to due with its lack of growth.

I spoke too soon, site maybe fixed but I have lost the posting box down behind the keyboard again. When site was down I could see the posting box and what I had typed, could you break it again Daniel.

I found mine were tatty and using up lots of space so I tied all the leaves in a bunch with garden twine. Looks more tidy now.
