So good TLC will do the world of good for her?


I get confused when website's suggest she will grow well on a north facing wall but then mentions that it will need at least 4 hours direct sun; a north facing wall will get no direct sun for much of the year with a few moments at sunrise/sunset in high summer.


I will see how she fairs, as to have the scented blooms will be so nice near the kitchen/bedroom windows.


Thanks Dovefromabove for your reply.

I've planted a Madame Alfred Carriere rose with the intention of training it to cover a north facing wall as it keeps getting mentioned as being good in shade. Can somebody who actually grows miss Carriere on a north facing wall give me a 'review'/account of how well she performs in this condition? Does she flower well or just the odd flower in a mass of green? Is her scent as good as they say? Photos welcome!!

Can somebody recommend a large climber to cover a large sheltered east facing wall which would be growing in a 'stone' cattle water trough (3ft deep, 2ft wide and 5ft long)?

I live in Derbyshire.


So there is nothing really stopping me as a gardener from buying whilesale, bar telling a white lie?

Hi all.


Not sure if this is a taboo topic but does anyone know where you can buy a large amount of perennials at not so high prices? Looking at wholesale nurseries, they only sell to the trade. However, how would they know if I wasnt, say, a fledgling nursery? 


apolog if this isnt allowed.

Thought it would be good to follow on from my post. Its not quite the full, lush and blowsy cottage garden I am looking for but it is early days (years). The marigolds and foxgloves are both grown by me from seed . I've managed to plant some geraniums (Wargrave) and lady's mantle however it is proving expensive to buy enough to fill the borders. any tips or constructive criticism is appreciated !!
