Lovely complementary colours here Spritz!

There's more to come - I planted two pots of pink Anemone blanda and two little pink Aubrieta plants at the edge! it's not all pink, though. The small tree is a white Hibiscus and there's a Sorbaria in there too. Two patio roses as well.

Ooh it'll be a dream when the warmer weather arrives.....I love the pink Aubretias!

I have two little Clematis plants as well - I am just waiting for the right moment to plant them...(small white flowers)

Jane being a Barnsley lass had to plant hibiscus of the same name.

More Clematis ? any wonder always ask you about them - you must nearly have national collection can just picture what your garden will look like when open for NGS , sure it will be beautiful.Its been stunning through the winter and really impressed by the colours you ve acheived throughout these difficult conditions.

Looks lovely Spritz, i do love that Skimmia in the background, what variety is it?...i think that may have to be added to my wish list

That's 'Magic Marlot', Angie. I got one last autumn and planted it in a pot - then I got this one for my new bed because I liked it so much. Hywel got one, and he likes his, too.

Thank you, BB - the two Clematis are small plants I bought as little ones, to grow on. They are called 'Early Sensation' and they are evergreen. I had one last year, at the back of my wide border - it was beautiful, but in the summer it got vandalised by a rabbit and it is only just hanging on in there. I thought that these two would look great to hide 'that fence' - but I shall have to choose my moment to ask if I can grow my Clematis up the wires. If not, I shall get a small trellis and they can climb on that.

Gone to my favourites Spritz, Another reminder to buy one, It will look great in my new front garden, Thanks... I love GOY :)
