Plants for a wedding

Posted: 15/09/2017 at 09:23

My daughter is getting married  next year at the end of June. The reception is going to be in a Victorian conservatory. I have some very tall white pots about 70cm high and 40cm square and thought that they would look  lovely in the conservatory perhaps with lights in them. Any suggestions please.

Sweet peas

I planted them straight into the  ground about the mid to end of March. They seem to have no buds but are very green and tall. Sorry I cannot take a picture as I  am not at home until the weekend.

Does anyone know why I have no flowers on any of my sweet peas despite them growing to over 1.2m, They are planted on the sunny side of my garden and have been well watered etc

I missed Gardeners World last Friday and forgot to record it but was told that there was an article about Pemberton roses and if anyone has any they need to contact someone but I am not sure who. Can anyone please tell me as I am fairly certain that I have some as the house was built in 1863 and the roses are very old and are hybrid musk roses and flower so I am told  just like the ones on the program.The person who helps me in the garden who saw the show and who is RHS qualified is fairly certain that they may be Pemberton roses but neither of us has a clue to exactly which ones they are.

Trying again for suggestions for pots on my roof

I forgot to say I can feed the plants twice a year if needed. So a slow release feed should work.

Yes there will be a gap under the pots for drainage and they will have an automatic drip system so watering will not be a problem

Pots are 1m tall 40cm x 40cm, black and very light weight. They will not blow of the roof as they will be bolted down. they will not be heavy when filled as the lower 0.5 to 0.7 will be filled with polystyrene. The soil will be 50x 50 with vermiculite. They will have a drip system attached to them. All I want is suggestions as to what to put in the 5 of them. I want something tallish, evergreen and fairly low maintenance as I only intend to walk on the roof twice a year and yes decking is being placed around the roof as the roof is put on the building so that I can walk around it without damaging the roof.  Anyone got a balcony? what do you grow on it?
