That's the same reason I am think of trying giganteum. I got mount everest and gladitor from lidl last year and i got a few more this year very cheap £1.69 for 2 bulbs or £3 for 4 bulbs  v good bulbs as well. Giganteum are quite expensive where did you get your from Andy?

New hedge height advice?

Posted: 19/09/2016 at 20:08

I wouldnt use cherry laurel for a hedge that size, you wouldnt get flowers or berrys because it would never get chance with routine pruning to keep it that size. 

Viburnium tinus would make a lovely hedge winter flowering and berrys. photinia little robin would also be a good candidate.

Not so much in my own garden just fed tomoatoes and pots around the garden. Planning about moving plants for next year.

Been digging up my mum garden this afternoon trying to level it out, surprisingly a Lancaster bomber and a spitfire flew over.

Planting beds in a greenhouse

Posted: 09/09/2016 at 22:11

I have benches on one side and bed on the other side. I personally think tomatoe plants do far better in the ground as well, dont have to do nowhere near as much watering as well. I got a monster cucumber plant as well must be over 12ft long it just goes mad, I let it grow across the shelving above the benches.

I keep toying with the idea of getting a calamagrostis karl foerster  I am thinking of planting it with a eupatorium purple bush with aster monch and rudbeckia Gstrum in front of it, dont know if I can bring myself to plant a grass though my instinct might try to mow it down. 

That red phormium on the other hand is lovely, where did you get it from ? cant find it on the web and is it fully hardy?
