A few of you may recall that I posted back in September last year regarding the newbuild property I'd recently moved in to, and I'm happy to report that I've been making (slow) progress extended the beds, adding top quality soil to a depth of about 2ft, and also - just recently - adding some plants/shrubs.
There's still plenty to do mind you, but I wanted to get your thoughts on two questions:-
1. What climbers should I put up this wall? It's south facing so pretty much gets the sun all day long.
2. Further up from the Beauty of Moscow Lilac Tree I'd like to plant a larger tree, but it obviously can't be huge as it's only a relatively small garden. Something that will:-
a) Be quick growing
b) Provide some sort of screening from the property over the road
c) Be aesthetically pleasing
On a side note, the slugs are devouring my recently planted Dahlia's (have put beer into an ice cream tub tonight to catch some of the blighters), and the Weigela that my grandmother gave me (next to the California Lilac) doesn't look like it's going to take.
