clematis wilt

Posted: 14/09/2015 at 15:30

Clematis wilt is actually rather rare. What were the varieties which 'succumbed' and who diagnosed it for you?

Yes, you may replant in the same place. If you are concerned then add some of the Replant stuff which is sold these days.

Seems very tall for Eucomis, Ours are only about 18 inches maximum when in seed like that. But, yes it well could be that.

The seed heads of Phtyolaca americana is what it reminds me of.

Hedging help please!!

Have a look at Lonicera nitida, comes in green and yellow variegated forms. Easy to keep to a reasonable height.

Watch out for molluscs. The seedlings which I got this year were destroyed in one night of mollusc mayhem. My fault I should have found somewhere safe from predators..

The ones sold by Homebase et all are versions of C. persicum and they are only hardy down to about -2c.. And then only in well drained soil.

There is a hardeir C. persicum from the Golan Heights in Lebanon, but it is not that easy to come by.

And if you are like me, then you will have millions of them all around! They seed if you do not get around to dead heading them.

Transplanting Leeks

And the grit inside the leeks is easy enough to remove when preparing for cooking. Slice off the unwanted green tops and the roots and stand the usable bits upside down in water, the grit soon drops out.

Another Plant ID please.

The pink flower belongs to Himalayan Balsam. A rather invasive annual.

ID please

Changed my mind, it is a Chelone. Senior moment, as I was looking at Phyostegia in the garden just before I came on.
