Musing on gardening and 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.
Hi, let's start a conversation - right here, right now! If you have a question, I'll also endeavour to get back to you over at your place.If anyone is having problems leaving comments, do contact me on vegplotting at gmail dot com or @malvernmeet if a quick tweet is more convenient for you.Thanks xxxMy general policy re commentsI value genuine commenters for the conversation they bring. Those aiming to link back and give credence to commercial websites (thankfully rare) will be removed.Blog posts are kept open for your Comments for as long as possible - for at least 3 months. I've reluctantly taken the decision if a post comes in for a sp@m attack after that time, I'll remove its Comments facility. I've found genuine comments are rarely left after 3 months, but dozens of sp@m comments are :( Removing these takes away the joy that a genuine comment might be left one day.
