small trees to form an arch

Posted: 18/10/2014 at 17:46

How about a small laburnum arch? Just don't forget if you have small children that the seeds are poisonous, but children can be taught not to eat things!

Have to disagree there, Tetley, I have 5 hydrangeas growing very well between/under a hazel and a huge magnolia. Only have to give them water if it's been dry for several days.

Dipladenia and tendrils

Chris, I cut mine back by about a 3rd when I bring them into the house, then cut right back in March and repot into fresh compost. Don't forget they need quite a bit of light, so put in a bright place, a conservatory would be ideal.

Lyn, so sorry to hear your news. Haven't joined in on this thread, as it's very personal for most of you, but do wish all the poorly ones and their loved ones the very best.

Lyn, this is for you
