What a cold windy day it is today. If there was no wind, it would be very nice. However, windy it is and in less that 3 hours, a whole line of washing has blown itself dry.

Just been to a garden centre to pick up a few things for this years gardening, including an all-round sharpener for implements (and indoor tools such as blades on food processors etc.We are going to see if it is at all possible to hide our oil tank. With that in mind, we have invested in two Clematis.

The first is Clematis Viticella John Howells, which should flower June to September. It does need pruning so I hope that won't be too much of a problem growing with the one below that doesn't require it:

The other Clematis is Macropetala Wesselton, which should flower April to May. It apparently needs no pruning:
Mind you, having thought about it, that might be a problem, but we do need the tank to be coveredby growth in the colder months, even if it is twiggy and lifeless. Ah well, time will tell.

Where our old compost beehive used to be, in the front, near a hedge, we will plant an Hydrangea Paniculata Vanille Fraise:
It looks like a large twig at the moment so hope it will do something this year. I must remember to plant it far enough away from the hedge so both can be trimmed and not encroach into each other.

If the weather warms up a bit more after this week, I think I will have a go at dividing a few more plants to fill in some gaps.
