    What should I grow against my south-facing wall?

    NO!!!!!! Annuals so you have to replant every year and you probably need to do it in Autumn in a cold frame to get reliably good results; they look crap in the late summer, they disappear in...

    Which Is Your Favourite Garden?

    I like Dewstow because it's quirky and totally original in its design.From visiting it as a kid, I'll always remember Stourhead.

    Thank you @Sienna's Blossom. :) This particular honeysuckle only grows to approximately 15ft so the trellis won't have to cope with too much weight.They are plants that don't need a lot of fuss as FC has found out, and worthwhile when we gain not only the flowers but the lovely, sweet scent too.

    Perlite / Vermiculite in a small flower bed?

    This probably seems contradictive but perlite holds moisture and also allows for good drainage so would probably be a good additive in your situation.

    I've used ground that has not been used for years and always get a good crop first year. If the ground has not grown much for a while it might well have a few years of fallen oak leaves rotted down in it. I think the very old idea of having a fallow patch was a good one.

    While this plant grew and spread nicely across the front of the garden, one clump seemed top get bowed down by heavy rain, and inexplicably flattened at the base under a rock. I've removed the rock, and placed it as a support in front of the stalks, and am wondering if the clump will revive.

    Fern

    Looks like a Heart Leaf Fern.There's more than 20,000 known species of Fern, but being a shop bought one helps narrow it down a bit.
