HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW

KNITTING WITH PLANTS

My project at the moment is to cover a rather ugly tall wall with climbers.  I have a passion flower

which I grew from seed bought when I last visited my best friend in Florida.

I have bouganvillia

And the ‘fleur rose’ (see last week’s entry) now identified as Podranea or Pink Trumpet Vine.

I also have a jasmine in there somewhere.

But there are a lot of bald pieces of wall, so I have been out there tottering on a ladder pulling, twirling, knotting string and generally knitting bits of plant around each other to try and persuade them into the gaps.

Hopefully by next month, the string won’t show and I’ll be able to post a picture of a pretty wall!
