Expensive gardening mistake - help needed

I just sooo want to see a photo of this......now and post fix snaps please Hartley! 

Too cold for jasmine?

Posted: 14/04/2014 at 20:56

Hi,

new pergola noes erected. I'd like to grow Jasmine climbing up one of the posts but concerned that plant details seem to say not completely hardy and advise growing against wall.  

So wondering if I should stick to a rose/honeysuckle/clematis combo on the pergola and leave the jasmine on the short list for the wall space.

I'm norfolk so we do get cold here.  Although not much rain.

Ta, Noodle

Installed bird feeders yesterday.   No takers as yet. Think they look rather nice! (poppy  shaped bowls on sticks) Suspect will be posting a thread later this year on how to get rid of the weeds under....

here birdy birdy....aphid with sunflower seeds on the side.... Fat and mealworms for pudding...here birdy birdy...

Sprayed with washing up liquid each day. There's less but still there.  Just found a ladybird in my son's potty (???!!!!!!) so have moved her onto the worst infested rose.

Cheers, guys.  Like fairy's feeder idea. the blue tits fly back and fore to the crab apple tree next to the rose bed.  So should be easy to get them to stop by for a snack.

Morning, Verdun.

yes, keen to do without chemicals.  There's enough wildlife here tlook things should be able to look after themselves - keen to keep the balance.

Think too many to squash. But that maybe because I am quite squeamish....
