My decision of the day - do I leave clematis alpina Pamela Jackman in its pot for first year when im sure its in the right place, or just plant it? Took all of 5 seconds to go fetch the spade!

Hi wintersong. Lots done today. OH found paint so arch no.1 now matches the decking, an awful dark brown but as its attached to the deck it needed go be done. After deciding I would start clematis off in a tub, ended up just needing to get it in an 18" deep hole next to new arch! Rained while painting and planting but no harm done, just a bit rusty! Long soak then as I told OH I couldn't possibly cook as well, he came up with an original idea - off to the pub, yeh hey!!! Will work on him to get going with arches 2&3 tomorrow! Bliss.

I like the gadget Blackest, what' sit called, brand etc?

Right, I'll just have to wait and see what my version of 'sweet pea' turns into! And I was so looking forward to them, never mind they must be somewhere! Worryingly though I think I've also nurtured a pot of weeds through winter in the belief that I had done so well looking after echinacea cuttings.

Grass cut on lowest setting, hydrangea p. has got some green tufts - so have cut back so growth can concentrate on them! Watering done in the sunshine. Can't find the paint/stain for the arch though. Dead tree has some growth again so still needs chopping to make safe, going with OH suggestion to let it grow again and plant some buddleia (can never spell that) in case it doesn't grow and then have some height, cuttings taken. can also put a clematis to grow up it and into comifers.

OK, what do I do with these sweet peas now? I don't follow the sweet pea thread as I should so will have missed any advice on there.
