    Not a very good picture, taken sitting at my computer in my office :). The Clematis has just climbed through to the top of the lilac tree (a big lilac tree) and the bottom of the picture is the apex of our 8ft high greenhouse.

    A friend gave us this from his tunnel

    And this tomato plant was self-seeded in an empty pot of compost in our greenhouse (whatever plant was in the pot must have died :noidea:). We haven't the faintest idea, yet, which variety it is - but it's a tough one as we didn't spot it until late Feb. It's now knee high and starting to flower!

                  I wish you'd stop posting pictures of them wisterias @noisette47 serious wisteria envy here :heehee: How long are the flowers on macrobotrys ?

                  If you haven't got free draining soil @Jasmine star Crown imperial Fritillaria are probably a waste of money .

                  Everyone got some really nice pictures , I took a few today myself still haven't got much to show yet , I'll put some on tomorrow .

                    Nearly a metre, @Perki.....I didn't use to believe the books, but I do now! The first flowers got just a hint of frost, so looking a bit 'faded', but worse things happen at sea :biggrin:
