    Thank you for that, I will certainly try your suggestions, I am just starting a new bed in the garden so I can prepare that as it will be a sunnier spot for it.

    Fingers will be crossed in spring, but hopefully you may seem some fat flower buds forming before then. If not, then patience - they are worth waiting for.

    What can I grow in a secluded spot?

    Hi,Maybe a hydrangea peteolaris - they don't mind the shade and make a good climber - not particularly fast growing though. Or a passiflora - now they do grow like mad once established. Cheers Rob

    Large pots - what plants?

    Many thanks for your help. My objective was really to put some of my existing plants into pots. But I think I am going to have to go out and try some of those grasses as well.
