at the start of the summer I started a thread asking for help with my garden, want to see the outcome?

I have uploaded photos of my garden now and left the photos of my garden then up. Thanks for the help, the sunflower was accidental, we didnt plant it the chickens must have dropped one of there seeds. grin

Thanks! Much improved but I think you need more climbers

So, now you've started, what's next?

::gardening is addictive emoticon::

hmm climbers, I can do climbers, what would you recomend and when would they need to be planted? I havee some honey suckle in teh back rockery behind the trampoline (cant wait till that thing is not part of the garden).
I intend to plant all the pots out now the plants are quite big and geet new things in the pots, replace my brick border with a little wall and raise the bed up, thats about as far as I have thought it.

I was going to suggest honeysuckle for the scent. How about jasmine? There are dozens of very beautiful clematis but they tend not to be scented. Or how about a climbing rose?

jasmine would be good, dd1's middle name, dd2's middle name is rose.

Oh yes a climbing rose would be lovely in your garden next to the jasmine and honeysuckle.
I'm quite pleased with the variegated jasmine I bought- the leaves bring a bit of light onto the fence.

Sounds like a yes to jasmine and rose then!
