Morning all .

Garden lighting.

My solar lights dont light up the plants and are just a light and there only use would be to mark out a path or similar. Hopefully there are stronger ones on the market.

Spoke too soon about the weather-its here now!!!

Back from course, which was quite good and even better finished at lunchtime. Trip to GC ended up with some little dears jumping into my passenger footwell!

Chaenomeles nivali £3.50, white flowers, spiney, already 2' tall, will go nicely against sunny fence and be useful to prick any pricks who try and climb over (am I allowed to say that?)

Also 3 poor dried up clematises for £2 each but why didn't I go to morrisons for healthy ones at £2 each? 1,felt 'sorry' for them, 2. wanted a 'challenge', 3. they do have some growth and potential, 4. 2 I had chosen anyway from Taylors website 5. and the most likely reason -  I've gone mad!

The president, Montana Tetrarose and Snow Queen.

So that's now a total of 10 climbers in the last couple of weeks! Have chosen mostly vigorous clematises, so my 3 arches will be swamped! No really, not all will go on the arches - at least 2 have different places to go...

Well, it's still a reasonable day here, windy but not overly so and no more than a light 10 minute drizzle so far. 

Oh yes, what plant food would you recommend for these lot to get going? Thanks.


New perrenials... Should i protect?
