Jasmine hedge

I want them to look "full" the jasmine is really mature and vigorous, very happy if they cover the wall completely, I pruned the jasmine really hard early spring this year and it has flowered really well despite pruning at the wrong time 

Dont laugh but Do climbers climbers climb down again?

Hi tingly, roses love clay soil, would yellow flowers be ok rather than yellow leaves?

i have to move a Montana that is in a place where it would totally take over everything around it, along our front wall there is a very mature rather vigorous jasmine'hedge' is planting the Montana at the opposite end to the roots of the jasmine and letting them entwine so I have 2 seasons of interest a bad idea?

Lavender cuttings

Posted: 01/10/2014 at 21:04

I took 6 lavender ( hidcote) cuttings a few months ago and they've all rooted, they're still only sprigs but I got a bit over enthusiastic today as had nearl 15 minutes in the garden!! I planted them out in the bed I want them in , along with all the grit they had in the pots, should I have waited? I wanted to free up a bit of space on my mini greenhouse, should I repot them ASAP? Thus is why I don't do well with cuttings, I rush everything
