What a difference


After having a huge tree and surrounding jungle cleared,it left me with lots of space.
Being a complete novice at gardening and only growing stuff in containers, I got stuck in.

None of the fence was visable before

All the fence panels have Clematis and Honeysuckle planted all the way round

Thanks guys, still got lots I want to do, moving things around untill they look right.
All the containers with Clematis, Honeysuckle and Fuchias in have a large hole cut out of the bottom so the roots can grow into the ground. the rest of the boarder has been covered in that matting that stops weeds growing through.

It has been a challenge what with my garden being on a slope and my complete lack of gardening experience. Just can't wait untill the spring now.

This has given me the confidence push ahead and keep improving things, and who knows one day I may be satisfied with the garden.

This looks great, Chris, and all done with containers. It's very impressive. Your heuchera obsession is competely justifiable. I think I have 4 but am planning to collect many more. They are so pretty, long-flowering and generally obliging. For same reasons, also love tellimas and tiarellas which I think are related. As for clematis, don't get me started...

TB I have 9 Clematis in all, no room for any more.

I will have to look out for Tellimas and Tiarellas not heard of them before, mind you 2 months ago I had never heard of Heucheras, and they say ignorance is
