Same. Mine stay in the ground because I love them and because I can't afford to keep replacing them every year

MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 07/06/2013 at 08:03

Good morning all, after sleeping twelve hours catch up, I'm having a relaxing day in the garden today, and a little bit of allotment later.

 

Summer has arrived

What a beautiful rose that is John and I understand your frustrations with discovering bare roots in a pot-plant. I had a similar experience when I bought my white rose, that fell out of its much larger pot with the tiniest root system I have ever seen. I gave it two seasons worth of TLC in the pot before it went in the ground.

I have to admit that buying plants from my local DIY centre is not really the best choice or standard of plant. Sadly, nurseries (which I can't get to or even the regular and more expensive GC (which I rarely get to ) still produce a much higher quality plant in its correctly sized pot and raring to grow.

Wintersong..have you come up with any ideas for under your honeysuckle..you could try periwinkles, they love semi shade and are evergreen...downside they can spread a bit but come in pretty shades of blue and white.



No, I don't want the trouble of periwinkle to be honest, but I did purchase a Pieris Carnaval yesterday although I'm still undecided if it will live under the honeysuckle because it needs to stay in a pot, not my ground. but I just coundn't resist, how silly am I?

Hate pink and yellow together- one of the first things I did here was remove the pink flowering spirea with the yellowy/gold foliage.Yuk!

 

omg. That's funny because that shrub is one of my most treasured in the garden. I adore the foliage and yes yellows and pinks together can be demanding on the eye, I used to steer clear of them but found that only the strong pinks and yellows actually clash in my eye. So you are right, when subtly is called for to tame the beasts
