Help for flooded gardens

Would you all like to see some photos of our plants being delivered to the flood victims?  See below!!!

So many messages of thanks on the facebook pages now.  People talking about bringing smiles back on faces, real morale boosts, such happiness at seeing things green and growing among the misery.  This week Moorland celebrated the first three families moving back into their homes!  So big smiles everyone, and thank you all again so much....

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

Thanks - will nip to garden centre tomorrow and get some nasturtium seeds - or young plants if I can find them.

How fast do you think they would grow if planted now?  Is there anything I could do to speed them up?

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!
