North facing wall

I think it may be too vigorous for a pot Eileen.  How about clematis Montana?  Or a summer flowerimg variety like Nellie moser which will perform on such a wall?    Honeysuckle too,,of you can water it from time to time

Yviestevie on the shady side new guinea impatiens......white always good in shade.....but grasses for me there, like hackonechloa, Bowles golden grass, golden sedge, carex testacea or acorus Ogon.

Charley, mine are flowering....have been for few weeks. 

Two things.....early season way down here and, secondly if you bought jumbo/plug plamts they will be late to flower.  Possibly may not flower this year but domt "fuss them"......plemty of summer left yet to do something in lare,August.  They do need a certain amount of water though so make sure they do not dry out.

On late night, impulsive slug hunt and discovered a favourite old dahlia almost flattened by the storms last night.  It's at the top of the garden so missed it earlier.

Will stake it tomorrow.....hopefully it will be fine. ,

Usually I put quite thick poles around this one and double twine as it is big and needs stromg support.  It's a blowsy old pink but I have grown fond of it over the years.  It's in a stoney rough part of the garden......would be difficult to remove it now......but does make a nice focal point for several weeks.

Yep, I know Salino.  Camera phone is not great.

Talking to an entomologist couple of days ago whilst she was out on the Towans here with her expensive camera and she recommended a camera for me.  I'm aware of the fuzziness of my pictures  So new camera is high on my to buy list.  Got a birthday coming up soon folks
