Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Wonky, I think I have energy but you have it to burn.  No chance of being sunburnt here today...very little sun but very humid.  Anyway, we cornish don't get burnt...we are used to it

get it outside asap now. 

Choisyas respond very well to pruning but leave it for now and trim it back to new shoots in a couple of weeks or so. make sure it doesn't dry out 

for a hedge it will probably will be better for that pruning

Too hot and I suspect alkaline soil in that pot

Welcome gerard

I'll make a start with honeysuckle and summer jasmine.  I have an archway with 2 honeysuckles on it and the scent from mid summer is intoxicating 

solanum alba is a favourite of mine too....white flowers from mkd summer into late autumn.  Vigorous and easy

clematis montana for white or pink spring flowers...grandiflora is scented too and a summer clematis like Ville de lyon would  give you red/maroon flowers all summer long 

Where are all the ranters?
