They look good dont they? Hope mine will be ok, I didn't think not to plant them out yet. I bought clems from aldi, morrisons and reduced section at GC for between ??2 and ??5. Just had to go with varieties they had. Wish id known about clematis man bbefore so I could have chosen exactly the ones I wanted! Good website. Have you put him on the good suppliers thread? look forward to more photos as they progress.

Another nice one lily. Thanks,  might have  a chat with school, ok about the 'role' as such now I've looked into it but v worried about time if I get another days work esp. Don't want to be eating too much into my gardening time do I? Think I'd have a lot to offer.

Acer looks great Lily, and what a bargain.

Off topic, and in no way garden related..... Has anyone been a parent governor for school? Got the form hom etoday and it got me thinking, I have a bit more time atm, should I give it a go? Any tips, experiences? Shall I just bin it?

Clari, I think I've heard that before about weakened immune system and a trauma to  kick start the problem, think this was one of the reasons given to my niece. Glad you can enjoy a lot more foods now and have a 'healthy' outlook on what life throws at you.

Gg/woody, love all the blues, and the tulip combinations work so well I may need to steal some ideas  I like the archy tree at the hall as well, seen something similar on tv programmes, is it willow? What a lot of planting you have to do Gg!

Had a good afternoon pottering, planning, planting and weeding. 

Also 'turned' the compost. One heap sort of looks ok so took anything twiggy, green, white or wormy out, and put back in. The rest I put to one side, may end up in old plastic bin to finish off. The other heap looks a bit of a sorry state (help artjac and edd!) , put grass cuttings on last week but they have gone grey and mouldy (dry)! Just mixed it up a bit and put some freshly removed turf upsidedown on top of it.

Should just nip out again to finish the afternoon off with a good watering.

Gg and Woody, I don't know where to start, breathless and beautiful

Now here we have some pics of my arch no 1. as promised eons (?) ago...

overall position in the garden

from one side with solanum glasthingy and clematis alpina pamela jackman


and tiny rose Generous Gardener

 you can just see arch no2 &3 in the background but that won't be their final position, that's till to be decided.

Now I'm going back to look at gg's pics again.
