Thank you, something to think about.

What to plant in VERY tall, narrow planter

Posted: Yesterday at 08:55

I've got a standard Salix growing in my tall blue glazed pot, around which I planted Sweet Peas last year - they grew over the sides of the pot - very effective. 

What grows in dark/dry areas?

And Pieris.

Suggestions re a suitable creeping plant

I have the same problem, as I am keen to clothe a north facing brick wall, but it is  where our drive is and so I can only plant in containers.  I am considering a Clematis Montana Rubens, but still investigating other options - what do you think?  The oak boxes sound very attractive. What about Parthenocissus, would that grow in a container?

Plant ids please

Sorry, Lily, hope I didn't offend.   I'm hoping to make a stumpery too.

A dead and buried one.

Restarting failed compost

Quite simple really, isn't it?  If it's too dry add uncooked kitchen waste, grass clippings, soft prunings etc.  If it's too wet add shredded paper or cardboard.  Horse, chicken manure is also very beneficial.  Keep it covered so that it heats up, and stir regularly.  Very satisfying!
