Zoe, only just seen this thread and it looks so exciting.

As said before what a fantastic blank canvas. Don't try too hard to get it perfect first time - that's no fun and frankly it's just not gardening (not as I know it anyway).

Buy what you love. Beg from friends - now is a good time as you can see the 'finished product' and most plants are nearly ready to be divided. Even start some seeds from seedswap on the forum.

You can get bamboo or willow canes to cover the wall easily and quickly, which can act as a backdrop for whatever you plant. I've seen outdoor photo canvases on Living Social recently - think they were expensive though but could look great with your own picture outside.

Good luck and enjoy.

Good Evening FORKERS

Hi Pentillie, I don't think we've met, pleased to meet you and welcome back. Not a day goes by without missing something on here!

I found this facinating and thought I'd share it with the forum.

I was amazed and enchanted by the country as a whole but it was such a treat to see how they use goethermal power to grow tomatoes all year, I hope you can read the information sign for full details.

Georgie - your garden looks great, just a little bit jealous

BL - lovely any time of year as always, but isn't it amazing how a few months can totally change the look?

V - the song 'mammy' reminds me of my dad, he used to wind us up singing it! Hope your rendition was better.

Fully and fairy, OH s experience of paint sprayer is to apply with sprayer then work in with brush. Says its worth using sprayer and is quicker than brush alone.

Morning all.happy birthday panda.

Lots of tidying up in garden yesterday. Jasmine I've had since June finally found its home, but had to ditch the nicotiana - not quite, replanted elsewhere but don't think they'll make it as nearly finished anyway. Planted hibiscus, will now ignore it and not get upset when nothing happens for a few years if ever!

Work again for me. Sunny morning. Have a good one all.

500 varieties... would love to see some photos!

I have 2, one I've had 3-4 years, orange not sure of name, that flowers May/June. Then a new one I bought this year called Catherine Woodberry which hasn't flowered this year.
