I love it Robyn. Like others say, hardy and really easy to propogate. The flowers last ages too. I adore watching the cats have a good time on ours.  Mine was a tiny plant when I got it. Plonked it into a border at the front and it grows to quite a size in summer. I cut it right back when it's done its thing.  Bees also love it.

Trees in Pots

If you want interesting colour you could go for a silver birth.  Very elegant and not dense so a nice light airy feel. 

If you want a show, you could go for a flowering cherry like a Kanzan. Simply stunning blooms in late spring / early summer and amazing orange and gold leaves in autumn.

I agree with Bobs good advice. 

ask your local garden centre if they have any unwanted plastic pots. One of our local garden centres actually have a big box of them for customers to help themselves. 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Everything got a good drink last night. Absolutely poured down and was quite windy too.  Hoping the water butts have filled back up.

got to go into the office today (big booooooooo). Will be dreaming of being in the greenhouse all day. However, got a lunch with a lovely pal who is also into gardening (big yipppppeeeeee)!

Hi Snowdrop

ive just nipped outside and taken these photos for you. I have two roses, both white, both climbers, both fragrant both without thorns. Not sure if they technically keep their foliage in the winter, but both mine seem to have done so. The madam alfred has been in for two years and is the one almost halfway over the arch which is north facing, and the Claire Austin has been in for a year and is South facing. Both are looking very healthy.  Hoping for a good display of blooms this year. Hope you find one you like.

The best multi purpose compost this year

Posted: 23/03/2015 at 05:44

I usually go for Arthur J Bowers or Murphys but have been disappointed over the last couple of years so this year I went for Jacks Magic and it's wonderful. Like luxury compost! Lovely and thin with no great bits of wood chip or unidentifiable chunks. £6.99 for two sixty litre bags.
