thank you for your help with the shady patio space

staffordshire, United Kingdom Gb

it looks so much better . i have added a clematis montana warwickshire rose, a clamatis and a rose bush. have added a couple of carnations just to fill in the spaces untill it grows a bit. added trellis up the wall fence and shed. have had to trellis off the front like a gate as the dog has already took a liking to one of the plants and has snapped a branch so blocked off till plant a little stronger. effective but cheap way to screaen of an area ( £1.29 from home bargains)




this should keep you in the pink for the summer. :o)
could i suggest that you gently untie the clematis from its canes [the green tape] and loosly tie them to your trellis with soft string/twine. it will spread out better and grow and cover more trellis. Do you know what the other clematis and rose colours will be?

That looks really lovely. :o)
It doesn't even look shady any more, either.

Super job there. :o)

I think I may have to visit home bargains tomorrow. I'm sure we've got one in Boston but I've never been, lol.

glad they are looking better. I forgot to do it to one years ago and it got all mildewy as a result. :o)

definatly recommend home bargains. the trellis cost me £1.99 for the larger ones and £1.29 for the smaller. in wilkos the smaller was £2.99 a huge difference. its amazing how a few plants brighten the place up.

definatly look better now been seperated from the canes. thank you seaburngirl. maybe one day i will have enough knowledge to help someone in my position
