Musing on life in the heart of rural Wiltshire. Well, erm Chippenham actually...
Seeing that arch in the first photo has got thinking that I might get one for the yellow climbing rose I'd like on the plot.
Hi Flighty - I use mine for growing sweet peas. Don't make the same mistake as I did though - this was a very cheap arch from Wilkinson's. They rot very quickly...
Thanks for the warning! Maybe I'll get my woodworking son to build something for me.
Hi Dragonstar - glad to be of help! I like the idea of your son's bespoke work though. I'm hoping to persuade NAH to do something similar to replace the broken arches on the plot, in particular the 1 I used for my vines!Hi KMF - thanks for the compliment! I'm posting these every couple of weeks or so, so that I have a 'time lapse' garden and plot. I think it'll also help me plan some changes as I'll be able to see what's not working and when.
I love hearing from you and welcome thoughtful conversations :) Comments aiming to link back and give credence to commercial websites will be composted!
