What's the star in your garden right now

So many of you do well with clematis, I tried last year & struggled so much with it. Any top tips to share I might try again next year. They do look great, when I see them I'm reminded how nice they are.

Very true Smokin Donkey (what a name by the way)  I wish i checked ebay before i got mine. Some great second hand deals out there. Also ever since i got a greenhouse, It seems that i'm always hearing of one's going free.

Finding one with the door on the 6ft side would be difficult i agree Zommer, and the inside space, become's very precious, you have just lost half of it. If you was thinking of adding staging in time aswell may be awkward.

They are great planters. LF that looks great for homemade I can use something like that myself. I wish i was a bit more handy like that. I've got the tools but no skills.

hi heather welcome to you. I'm still new here myself not too new to gardening. If your renting Heather take your before and after photo's, If you move you could always show the landlord, "never mind the mark on the wallpaper, look what i've done to the garden" I want my full bond back.  

I'm sure if you get stuck you will find the help you need on here.

Lupins help with cutting back...

Yes val thats normal with lupins it's all over very soon, but a great show while it last. You could as punkdoc say's collect the seed pods when ready and plant up for free plants next year, the one you have will be back spring next year for an early summer flower. If you chopped the dead heads of sooner, without the plant wasting energy on seed making, you might of got a second flush of smaller flowers. I find the second flush is always much smaller.
