Hello, I purchased this passion flower in spring but didnt plant it out as it looked a little weak, anyhow, it has romped away in a pot. The leaves are turning yellow now. Should I prune it? Should I leave it outside over winter or put it in the greenhouse? Thanks for any tips.

love your little kitty getting his/her chops into that photo! Your produce looks great! Your stew doesn't sound too bad either! Perhaps a picture when cooked? Yum yum!

Bored of my garden!

Hi Claire, wow what a beautiful garden! It looks so pretty. I'd love to achieve a garden like yours. I'm on the other side of the fence with just a large rectangle of grass as a back garden and complete fear about doing anything to it! I get my gardening fix from an allotment area I've created to the side, as well as two borders around the front. I've fallen in to the trap of stuffing my borders full of all sorts and now they are a real mess, very unbalanced. Planning on emptying them out completely this autumn. Am just in the process of researching plant combinations as ive got my heights all wrong and there's no seasonal flow. Is there any way that you could change an area of your garden rather than starting again? It seems such a shame as it is so pretty.

Thanks Fairygirl. I'll do just that. Hope you get lots of lovely flowers on yours.

Hi there,

well I managed to resist and left the clematis in pots. They grew a bit, but no flowers which I guess is to be expected.  Should I pot them on into even bigger pots do you think or just leave them until they die back, over-winter them in a cold frame and plant on the garden next spring?

Do you think your hellebore will flower again when it's supposed to?

guess who's hiding in my compost bin

Eeeek! I know they are harmless, and a lovely sign of healthy wildlife.... but the thought of a snake of any kind scares the living daylights out of me!  I'm a real animal lover so would NEVER ever hurt anything but I reckon you'd hear my scream in timbooooktoo!!  Good luck GG. You are one brave chick!

SD and Cagrand. - the world is a better place because of wonderful people like you. What touching kindness. Thank you from someone who loves animals too x x

What a lovely smell!

Thanks. I'll definitely give them a go. 

These were only £1.50 from the local Saturday morning market. I think they'll be a regular feature from now on.

fairygirl - what a lovely thing to say...thank you!! 

Other than sweet peas, are there any other strongly scented cut flowers?

still raining!!
