Figrat...What a lovely Clematis freckles, mine's been a tab bit disappointing, started to flower in December but a very poor display, there's lots of green leaves though and new growth.
Clematis jingle bells hasn't been much better and there's alot of dead leaves on that. When do you prune.I can't get my head around pruning clematis . I've one which flowers in spring and then puts on a show in late summer.
Discovered a Christmas rose in flower today,hidden behind a fern. I've little daffs in bud and tulips are coming up really early.
