GillyL, be careful where you put those Chinese Lanterns, they grow rampant and spread like mad!

Oh, good morning everyone, enjoy your day, raining here and thunderstorms.

Wow Liz, you are really talented, that painting is beautiful, I love the white narzissus (spelling?!), have some of those in my garden and there are wild fields of them in certain parts of Switzerland.

This jasmine is hardy, it's not the same as the one you buy in the supermarket. Have a look at this description from the RHS:

Happymarion, those are fabulous, what a talented lady you are. I'm afraid if I started to try and paint it would look like it was done by 5 year old! I wonder if there are others on here who are talented, will keep my eye on this thread.

Someone on another thread asked for something similar and I think it was Buzzy Lizzy suggested Trachelospermum jasminoides (star jasmine). Apparently it is scented and evergreen.

A Cautionary Tale .....

Posted: 09/06/2013 at 12:28

It's a red hazel, quercus and grows like the klappers, sprouts endlessly from the base as well as sprouting all the nuts I can't find.  Don't have room to let it do it's own thing, so have just let two trunks grow. At the last place where we lived there was a hazel at the end of the garden that was at least 15 meters high and just as wide, but garden was 1000 sq.m., this one is only 500 and the house is in the middle.
