48 perennial plant offer

Posted: 23/04/2014 at 21:48

There will be those who are satisfied with these offers but many who are not.

Rather than try to fill the garden with such a random mix of lots of perennials....most of which are small to tiny......better to buy a few good size plants amd use annuals as fillers for a couple of years.  Then you can plan your garden properly.  Beg or borrow plants from friends  and neighbours ...plants you like and want.

To us Cornish, Jamaica inn is embarrassing.  Not seen it but reports about sound quality and the awful Cornish accents is off putting.  

Hope the scenery is captured properly though.

If in a slightly shady position there is no better clemaris than Nelly Moser.  Pruned correctly it will give spring and summer flowers

I have an espalier pear.  I did mine from a maiden tree.

You need to train a pair of branches every year and tie them to horizontal support wires. You allow a leading shoot and two side shoots to develop and then these side branches are pulled  down to horizontal near the end of summer.

This process is repeated every year until the desired number of horizontal branches ...usually 3 or 4 .....is reached.

red robin and lavender

Red robin will not do well in a trough.  

How about a camelia? evergreens lovely evergreen with spring flowers but needs to be planted where it does not get the morning sun.  

Lavendars would grow there in those troughs but these need plenty of sun.
