Once again, some gorgeous photos everyone.  Lovely

Can you give me some advice on Passion Flowers?

@Lorea thanks for the advice. Will try cutting it back. Heavens have opened this afternoon, will try another day! @Alina no it's in the ground and usually gives a great display, perhaps I'm just impatient.

Oh yes, sorry to confuse the issue I meant the Clematis and not the perennials from this months mag! Sorry.

Wow your allotment looks fab!! We got our about 4/5 weeks ago and have a few bits planted so far. U look like u have spent a fair bit on it! I am trying to be a budget allotmenteer so we tend to use what we have so far. It's great though isn't it. I enjoy it so much. Trying to keep the kids interested so they each have a raised bed. Only prob we hav so far is weather and those pesky birds!!!!! Everything covered with net. Going down there today to set up some sort of scarer! Happy gardening!

Can anyone give me advice on passion flowers? I didn't cut it back and at the mo it looks pretty sad. Should I cut it back and see if it climbs again and treat it like my Clematis??? Could it just be the cold? Can I feed it? What's best?

think of the blackbirds Monty !

Timing for seedling planting with this weather?

I wish I had a proper greenhouse! I have one of those hexagonal plastic covered things. It's better than nothing but can only really use it for seedlings etc. Not enough room for toms in grow bags etc. Still a bit of a beginner at all this, but things going ok.

Yes, plugs around 2-3inches. Should grow well once potted up. I cut my others back almost to the ground every year and they are a couple of feet already. Think i'll put one to climb up near front door. Not sure about the other?
