Home made garden arch


 I thought I would share this picture of my garden arch that I made before the snow hit us. I made it out of Birch. The small piece of land at the side of my house was being thinned out so had the chance to get some nice pieces of wood. 



  • Hello Sam

    Looks good, have seen ish like yours at Ness Botanic Gardens but larger, tried to post but computer playing up.

    Are you going to grow flowers up it?

    Hey, nice job, should look great with some climbers growing up it. It's very satisfying to have made something and you should gets lots of pleasure from it.

    That's clever, what are you going to grow over it?

  • May be that would be good to grow up the nasturtiums seeds from the seed swap that I sent you.

    The nasturtiums would climb up nicely

  • I have a stunning night scented jasmine for the arch as in the woodland to the right of it is full of Honeysuckle and the smells are wonderful. My new nasturtiums are going in my big old barrel beside my french beans. I think they will look wonderful together image and am looking forward to them arriving Gardengirl image Yours were posted this evening so whould be with you soon.

    I have a lot of scented plants in the garden and plan to have a lot more as I have a very good friend who is blind after a bike accident and like him to have the pleasure of the garden even though he cant see it.

  • That sound nice the bees should help your veg grow

    What colour is the jasmine is it white?

    I have a little flower white one - can't remember name growing up a fence looks pretty

  • I have a couple of white ones that I took cuttings from last year but this one has a pink flower. I have never seen it before so am hoping it will do well

    thats really clever, love the little gargoyle too image

  • I had'nt Verdun, no. They sound loverly. I love the lemon scents. I have loads of lavender and rosemary that have come from cuttings I took this year and last so Im planning on making a hedge out of them. I love herbs for cooking, magic, medicinal etc. I am hoping to have a big collection again. My last cottage, everything in the garden was there either edible or herbal. If it didn't have a use, it didn't get grown but my new garden is 4 times the size so can definitely afford to add more now image
