Hi Stacey

I did very similar last year with a newly planted Clematis.  I left it to see if it would survive and it did.  It wasn't the biggest of plants last year but it is still surviving!!

Well done Tracey!! 

I've got forest flame, just gave it a fairly serious chop! It was looking a bit old and worn. Lots of lovely rich red shoots coming out now.

Choosing a clematis

Posted: 11/03/2014 at 22:29

Some gorgeous ideas!, may have to snatch a couple!,  we bought a clematis a few years ago and planted in a pot outside the back door in remembrance of our dog when she was put to sleep. I can't remember the name but we call it Casey! It has lively rich burgundy flowers. Anyway since then I seem to have built up a collection of around 10 different types. Can't wait to see them all flower this year

Tracey, my new obsession.

One is flowering at the mo, but the other I think will flower in early winter so we'll see what it's like in about December.


Puncdoc, fab piccies. 

Feel inspired to take a few more piccies myself. OH bought me a tablet for my birthday so it makes the job of downloading much easier.

I saw all the piccies of Hellebores on here and couldn't resist getting a couple.  We went to Wimpole Hall for the day in the lovely sunshine and they had plants on sale. £7.00 each. 


Tracey your piccies are great. 

Since joining GW forum,I have been overwhelmed with all the support & advise

I didn't make cake, but I made soup to go with that lovely loaf of bread. 


I agree with everyone. Great forum for info, a laugh etc. I particularly like the photos.

Planting for cut flowers

Posted: 10/03/2014 at 20:16

Hi. I would also like to grow cut flowers and am going to set aside a patch at my allotment.  So far my ideas are Cosmos, I like purity which is white, delphinium, salvia (cant remember exact type)  Dwarf sunflowers,  sweet peas. Dahlias. Any other ideas greatfully received. X  I have loads of seeds ive collected over the last few months and will just try a few of each.
