While on a recent family trip i ventured into a garden centre and purchased this new shrub with no thought as to where i was going put it, i'm sure we all have done it at some time, two weeks on and i am still none the wiser as to what i should do with it, where to plant it, what to plant it with, i'm now thinking of just potting it on to give me more time to decide, does anyone have any ideas suggestions? 

 It does have an unusual growing habit and colour hence why i had to have it

I've recently planted some Virginia Creeper in a largish pot at the front door, just want it to grow up the wall and over the door and down the other side, don't want it covering the whole wall or shooting all over the place, not feeling so confident that it will work after reading your post pansyface, but he who dares n all that..

Have you considered Jasmine for your arch Kez? i've got one growing up an arch in a very shaded area...

Hi Ya-all,

Got a Clematis ( v Polish Spirit ) that is basically now in the wrong place, was in the right place at first but my Solanum has taken off this year and has swamped the Clematis, question is would there be any advantage cutting back the Clematis just now and moving it to it's new home, or should i just wait till i normally cut it back in May?

Congrats on your engagement Clari & Steve...

Off out to give my my overgrown Montana a haircut, problem is it's sprawled across the top of a flat roof shed not to sure it will support my weight, might send one of the kids up instead

Ha Ha i know what your saying Philippa, i have seen me stopping in my tracks waiting on the birds finishing there bath before continuing up the garden so as not to interrupt them, there is nothing i like better than sitting on the decking next to the waterfall and pond and watching them having a bath in a wee pool, or stopping off for a drink, if i disturb them i too always apologise, glad i'm not the only silly burger on here...
