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.

Thanks for reminder PD! Poldark here I come! 

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.
