My goodness, you have been destructive! I thought you were just having one side of fencing done and looking at your new plant list wondered how you were going to fit them all in.

Siris it is not our fence!! unfortunately none of the neighbours have accepted their responsibilities, so we have been left to pay for every fence front and back!!it has cost us a small fortune over the years!!.....due to the high winds this winter the left side is now collapsing, the only thing stopping it are some gravel boards which Peter nailed to the bottom to stop the badger coming through! left it would take all our plants with it, so here we go again!!
My ebay order has arrived, not happy , too small, too wet, disappointing to say the least......have been in touch with the seller.......back to the drawing board!!

So disappointing when you find yourself in a situation which isn't your responsibility but have to deal with it (and fund it) because no one else will! I am sure your Crocus plants will thrive and hide the fence in good time for your visitors. How about painting the fence green so gaps aren't so noticeable?

Oh dear unfortunately some people just do not care, it seems to me that your neighbours know how much your garden means to you so know you will pay the cost to have it looking good, never mind Dd you and hubby do not have to say thankyou and will once again have peace of mind, if left it would rile you each time you looked at it....Here's hoping the new planting does well for you...

A lot of work has been done and it must have been sad to lose some favourites. I am sure that all will be well and you will find some lovely replacements. Try to include a variegated jasmine somewhere though because you did love it.
Very best of luck with it all.

Gong to be difficult to get a mature look by June for your first visitors, unless you get really big specimens, but I am sure you will think of a solution. Good luck,Dd.

Thanks Siris almost impossible in 4 months!! (will have to divert their attention elsewhere) lol large specimens would be the answer, but.. they are so expensive, after paying for the fencing not a great deal left in the plant kitty!!
Wildrose many thanks, I will certainly try and include the Jasmine as it was such a pretty one.
Lincs, as you say it would rile me every time I looked at it, it had to be done, OH says he is hoping it will see him out!!
Gee we do normally paint the fences green, but this has been treated, although the fencer suggested we preserve it with a clear paint!! have got that stage in life when I really do not want to be doing any more fence painting (my poor knees are not as bendy as they used to be)......

What a task for you DD. We had to do our back fence because two large dogs kept Jumping over it to go exploring. It started to shred under the onslaught. Your garden will look so different for a while. We painted it green a while back and it sort of disappeared behind the shrubs.

Dorjac I still cannot get used to the borders, I don't really want to start painting, it would take ages, I know it would look better if it were green.!!

Goodness DD you have been busy. Boundaries are never simple, are they. We've had one or two problems in the past, one of them being a stone wall holding up the neighbours garden where we used to live. It didn't appear to be either of our boundaries as the deeds went back a long way. We've always had to go halves to get the boundaries sorted. One of the fences belonged to a neighbour and it fell to bits in the end so we offered to pay half. We got it sorted out in the end but I thought boundary lines were on the deed papers of the property as to who they belonged to. Perhaps I am wrong.....
