I think we should still have an old wall, if only to grow clematis up!

I think gardens are helped by walls...perhaps a low one, that you can sit on..

Hmmm - mellow, old, brick - or one of those wonderful dry-stone ones?

dlowan, I just planted some nemesia and livingstone daisies seeds in my own greenhouse yesterday. There were quite a lot of seeds left over, so I just sowed them across the beds in your garden. The climate is so nice in these parts, I don't reckon they will need greenhouse propogation to get sprouting, what do you think? Smile

has anyone mentioned tree planters? My sister just bought a house with two huge maples in the front yard and three old fruit trees in the back. There was an old platform-tree house and it had a box on it. I thought - ZAP - a planter for the trees! You can buy the moss-covered, wire-framed planters and wedge them in (maybe wire them onto) the crotches of the branches/trunks and plant drappy shade loving annulas and perennials. Maybe some ferms? Some jasmine?

Some deer??? Although they may frighten the cats.

And those __________ gardenias have set me a-sneezing! Confused

What a topical thread as I am in the process of desiging my garden (the preliminary work is almost done) - will be back with more descriptions and once finished, with pictures (I hope)

Hmmmm ... I think I might not get the job. Would probably ask me if I'd be the garden gnome, instead.

hmmmm, what would the job description of a garden fairy be? Would there be any disturbed women around trying to squash said fairy in heavy books?

Gautam, and everybody, I just started a new topic for Garden Pictures: http://www.able2know.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=149556#149556

Neko Nomad has previously included some pictures of his garden in the Formal and Informal Gardens Topic.

LOL!

Yup, that would be one good reason for me not to apply for the fairy job ...
