Does any grow this variety,  how tall does it grow? I was just about to plant mine nearish to the front of the border but I thought I double check the height it grows. On the label its says 75cm max but just had a look around on internet and it varies from 1m to 1.6m

Thanks Runnybeak , I want it to be like a little hide away where I can have a cuppa  so I got some  verbena bonarises to plant there to give some height but I can still see through it so I can see rest of garden.

First time I ever seen one,  but I would of thought a brush would be just as affective at getting rid of worm cast.

Been busy today staining my pergola light oak  what you think ?  its only the first coat but it took 3 half hours.  I hate painting its so boring. Two more coats to go 

I got a climbing rose Arthur bell to plant on one side, I think I put a clematis on the same pergola leg as well. My wisteria Prolific has flowered, second year I have had it.  Saved me some money were going to buy one already flowering for £50 

Growing some sweet peas just for this year on them cheap nasty trellis on the side of shed, I was think of planting  a winter jasmine but tempted at trying a kiwi plant for side of shed. 

Just need a bench now to place underneath pergola and get my plants in


Just watched Monty Tonight

I think I am in the minority as well I didn't like the gravel garden  It was a bit bland for my taste. 

If you want plants now Joyce your best of buying from garden centre etc. or you could sow some perennials for planting out autumn / spring 

It's my birthday
