They have been outside in the pots in the position i want to plant them. The sun beam is mainly yellow in colour and smells like eucalyptus when you cut it. I dont know the full name.

I have bought a clamatis "mile a minute" which i plan to plant at the end of the garden against a sunny fence. What trellis is best to use? plastic or wood and what pattern? i.e big squares or closer together triangle slats or should i use fan trellis? I live in Solihull any suggestions on places to buy it from? 

Hanging baskets and window boxes

The Thompson & Morgan Begonias were amazing last year. I had massive hanging baskets full to the brim. T&M have a new pink version out for 2013 which im going to try. 

When do you bring your tender perennials inside?

Do you just put your begonias in the greenhouse with no heating?
