Fast (annual?) climbers for instant effect... now?

Posted: 15/06/2014 at 11:29

Oh dear.  I've messed up.

For various reasons (including new puppy!) I'm terribly behind in my gardening tasks and have also managed to kill off my young sweet pea plants.

I've got two obelisks (5 foot tall) by my front door, which were destined to be covered with sweet peas this summer.  Is there anything that I can plant now to grow up them which will give me similar sort of show over the summer? 

Any suggestions welcome!

Hello everyone, sorry I've been so vacant!  Life is a bit ridiculously busy at the moment.  For those of you on facebook, the page is Community Blooms.

I'll try and get an update on how the planting is going and post it up here in the next few days or so!

Great work Maureen!

Can I just say that one of the lovely things about this forum is the way everyone is pulling together?  For example.... Artjak started this initiative;  I did a little bit of research making contact with Andrew and the FLAG group on facebook;  now everyone else is getting on with it and plants are zipping all over the country without any help from me or others, it is just HAPPENING!!!!

You are all wonderful, fantastic people.  Big cheers!

dahlia tubers in ground through winter question.

My dahlias have just poked up out of the ground in the last week - two inches above ground now.  I'm in south wales, on clay soil, and I spread a thick (6 inch) layer of mulch (leaf mould) on the bed before winter.

Now I can see where they all are, I can start putting the other plants in around them!
