One of the major reasons for starting the herb spiral - growing rosemary - was a huge flop! I now have some little cuttings in a pot. Rosemary is clearly not happy in a hot and humid climate. The arch over the top for passion fruit to clamber over provided too much shade and the ground in the herb spiral never dried out. Firstly the arch was tidied up - old dead branches of the vines were removed and tied back to allow some sunlight in. The mandevilla lies over the arch too, with its very heavy branches, so it all got a good cutting back (what I could reach that is - it is aiming for the sky!).
