Hi Cleo13, I'm sure you'll be happy here

Choosing a clematis

Posted: 11/03/2014 at 21:13

Obelixx, how quickly does it grow, in other words how long before it will look great on the arch/es?

Dove - the light will be all around it. Again, how quickly will it grow?

I think I chose only quick growers but when I've looked at so many...(?)

Thanks both of you - I'm VERY excited!

Ordered the extra large compost bin, think its called 'easy load'(?) from primrose and amazon, whopping ??45 delivered. Even I think im sad! Cut through hedge trimmers, not even used them! Chain saw not been working for ages! OH says we can hire oneAND superhero says he can mendd the h trimmer! He's also secretly liking the idea of arches to screen out neighbours at bottom of garden!
Kef - if you've rested today, fingers crossed for tomorrow, but easy stuff only!
Clari - so the council c.bins are just basically nicked (legally) cos someone can't use common sense. Sounds about right.

Does anyone talk to their plants?

few and far between I reckon nut

mine's squeezed behind the climbing frame where plants would only get trampled on!

going for the biggest but will divide it so effectively get two out of it and then already have the third. That's the theory anyway, not sure how to do it in practice!

Oh PD and KEF, you've outdone me there! Your gardens are superb - wait til I get my arches though

Clari, you've got me on the compost trail! Now I'm considering 718L for £35 or 897L for £45. Don't want to spend £10 really! Got £50 birthday money I've been saving for plants... What do you think, will I regret not going for an extra 179L for £10, how mush id 179L anyway? Have already got a 22oL like you new ones Clari.

Is that the £35.46 for 2x 330 litres clari? Not committed to buy yet, got to spend it on plants!

Sunny now but still cold.
