I actually managed to kill off a Clematis Montana Rubens last year having to move it while some building was going on but I am very happy with how all the Montana children are coming along! They range in colour from deep pink to white - the only one that is a bit of a disappointment is Clematis Monatana Rubens 'Marjorie' which isn't the lovely deep peach colour of the one I saw at Maryjoe's open day a few years ago. It is pretty insipid and the flowers are much smaller. I'll be giving it some extra TLC in case it is an environmental issue.

In the meantime I'm more than happy with the Clematis Walk and I think the Laburnum is going to really enhance that area.

The other star performer at the moment is the Wisteria which is making good efforts to spread along the Pergola.

I would so wish for a Wisteria to grow well, or to even grow at all, in our garden. I went to inspect mine the other day and suddenly remembered that I pulled it up last year it was that pathetic. Still have one more down under the Pergola so I must clear that area up and have a look.

Hazel, your garden is just so full of colour, it's really lovely.

The plants are certainly covering the arches and your Wisteria is gorgeous. I hope you are not getting this horrible weather that we have here this morning.

Sounds like your garden is on the up:)

Fantastic, Hazel. That first photo is special, I love the Laburnum.
