I need to move my borders from here

and here

to this wonderful clay ridden patch previously covered in ground weed sheet and play bark.

Making room for a summer house here

There will be more room than there looks as the conifers are coming out ( hurray!).

Then the nice bit of reshaping the borders and replanting. 

Cant wait to see how it all comes together.

First, I need a bit of help digging that temporary housing over.

Passiflora, can I plant it in the ground?

Thanks PD and Clari. It's not going to have the protection of a wall, more middle of the garden. Might sink a pot and decide near t time for winter. 

Passiflora, can I plant it in the ground?

Bought a passiflora at Chatsworth yesterday, Assume it's caerulea but there's no label. 

Was told it was hardy but I have my doubts  for Yorkshire winters. 

It will be in full sun but also full exposure to wind and frost etc.

I have reasonable but clay based soil, which I believe would suit it.

Ive read it can be cut right down in Autumn, so If grown in a pot could it be cut free from its support and taken in for summer?

If I keep it in a pot what size and soil / compost?

Although I'd prefer to plant it in the ground but I am open to your suggestions, experience and advice.

Please help.

Went Saturday. Amazing but must say I was not as in awe as last year at Tatton ( the only other the flower show I've been to admittedly). 

OH well and truly treated me! Three 'harlequin willows' and a wooden chair. Just where to put them now! 

I bought a few bits n bobs myself as well.

Travel and parking was very good, we arrived at 9.45, long queue on foot but not bad on the drive there.

Wellies were essential, fun watching OH in his shoes!
