I have 6 V.bonariensis and 3 lollipop in my garden!! The butterflies love them!! I have had 5 or 6 butterflies all at once hovering over border in a kaleidoscope!! I love the verbena as it adds wonderful height and you can see straight through them.

you have all been sooo much help. 

I think, personally for me, I would like to have a repetition on one side of my garden with clematis, rose, clematis, rose... and so have decided to go for clemetis avalanche and a light pink rose called 'a shropshire lad' by David Austin... That said i've not bought it yet...and could change my mind by tomorrow!!

Hi there,

i'm hoping to a bit of advice. I have a of fence of c10m in length and 1.8m high and would like to run some climbers across them which flower nicely and give good green foliage throughout the winter...

Perhaps I should get 3 or 4 climbers across the 10m.. or would that be too many? 

What types of climbers should I do some research on? I love roses and hydrangea... so could definitely incorporate those, but perhaps I could get 3 or 4 different climbers?...

Thanks for ur replies.. bit of a newb question... But if I sow them by seed now..how do I know what is a poppy and what is a weed in spring???

HI there,

I would like to grow some poppys for next year; either from seed or little plugs. 

If i grow by seed is it best to plant out now? What about planting little plugs instead?.
