Garden looking tidy.


Been making the most of the sunshine over the last couple of days.

Grass cut edges done. Pots of daffs lifted and Dahlias planted.
Hanging baskets planted up. They all are secondhand, recycling at its best. Some of the plants are from my greenhouse, fucshias from last year, pelergoniums I bought as plug plants earlier in the year and lots of different trailing plants etc…

Only the summer will tell if they are any good.

Oh and they are up an old tree that I cut down the other year to let more light in. Hopefully they will add plenty of colour.

Clematis Carnaby and Miss Bateman showing off.

Jaqulin du pre putting in an early appearance.

And finally this little beauty.

I planted it last year and no flowers, this year however it looks like there are going to be loads. Any ideas on its name?

All looking lovely in your garden. Tell me, the Clematis Miss Bateman looks white in your photo yet mine, which should be the same type, is a 'wishy-washy- pink and only climbs to about 3 feet !

Lovely birdseye view and it all looks smashing, its a busy time now and great to be able to get things outside at long last. I also make use of an old conifer by using it as a feeding station in the winter and hanging baskets in the summer. Your clematis are lovely as well.......

Shirley, I have just looked a picture from last May and my Miss Bateman looks even more white with a pale green stripe down the petal. Its also up to about 4-5ft up the apple tree. The flower though is about 18" from the ground. Do you think I have its name mixed up? (it is possible)

Sorry Shirley, it is definately supposed to be white. Just used the searcg facillity on here and it comes up with pics, blogs and sellers.
Can you remember where you got yours from?
