Wonderful set of pics, Sharnford.
Yes, lots of work for everyone to do in their gardens as soon as the weather allows... but the rain is welcome for the growers :o)

I'm impressed with your peony. Is it a standard peony or a tree peony?

Now I am very interested in the Blackberries. My neighbour has a lot of Brambles that I have to say we like to eat....they do little gardening so I look after some of it and I think I should tie up the Blambles as you have your Blacberries.

I do like the look of your garden and you have plenty of interesting shrubs. The clematis adds that bit of cheerfulness which we are all needing right now.

Loads of colour & lots still to come :-)

Yes it has the wow factor, the Camellia`s are gorgeous and I love that Clematis, with all those buds you are in for a further treat very soon, hope you put a pic on to show when they emerge.....

Linda, it say's to prune each winter cut out dead canes that fruited previous summer and trainin new,tying them onto support's where they will produce their fruiting spurs following summer, hope that's some help.
We had such a good crop last summer hopping the same this year.
Sheilar,you have me there ??was in the garden when we moved here five years ago,when finished growing it's like a large bush, i have to stake it as the flowers are large and it ends up top heavy,thanks for all your comment's (sun out all morning now its raining again )
can't keep up with it, rain stoped sun back out :-))
