Morning all, it's sunny here and not too cold so gardening beckons. I have had a delivery of pelargoniums to pot up. At some stage will be popping to visit mum and their is a rumour that we are eating out tonight with Firstborn as part of Merri's birthday celebrations.
Walked round the garden earlier and the recent frosts have killed off the new growing shoots on both Clematis and done a bit of damage to the mahonia. The shoots on the grape vine have also been damaged. I'm sure they will recover, fingers crossed that we won't get any more.
Kay8 I live in the West Mids and have grown jasmine outside in all my gardens. Have a huge one in this garden and the weather doesn't seem to bother it. I agree that it will be too strong for your arch, mine bought the fence down at one point.
DD, I'm with Dove on the decking situation. It can be lethal when wet and you be leaving yourselp open to accident claims if anyone slips. Food slipping through the cracks would also be an issue.
Have a good day everyone.
