The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

Thanks to all my new friends.


I would like to thank all the people who have responded to my first blog. A big thank you to, Hillyc,Donna,Terratoonie,Hywel, Blodyn,Jacques,Owdboggy,
Greenfingers,Waggers, Wagger,Spritzhenry.Thank you all. I hope to get some photos of my last garden in london and also pictures of my garden in Dunstable.The person i brought this house from told me that i would not be able to grow anything because of the high levels of chalk in the Dunstable area, how wrong he was! My back garden last spring and summer was a riot of colour,my climbers were fantastic.I added a lot of well rotted manure and the results were
truly outstanding. Some climbers i left in deep pots and buried them in the ground five years ago when we moved here.They all look so happy, my back garden is facing north east and we get early sun but have a nice shaddy garden in late afternoon.I read many years ago that if you have a small garden you should utilise the walls an fencing and create the feeling of having more space, these tactics have certainly worked for me.Thanks again to you all/Goodnight teamates.

Happy gardening when the spring comes around. Take care Alibongo.

You've done very well with your garden.
It will be interesting to find out more about how you have utilised your walls and fencing. :o)

Have you got photos from when you moved in, Alibongo? They'd be interesting to compare with what you've achieved since.

Alibongo, you haven't told us what kind of climbers you have. I guess clematis because of your question about them. What else do you have?
I have real trouble with clematis where I am. It seems the large flowered ones succumb to clematis wilt very easily for some reason although my two alpine types do just fine.
