Clematis

Posted: 18/03/2013 at 18:38

Hi, we bought two small Clematis from a supermarket last Spring...about two feet high and only a couple of quid each.....there has been virtually no growth and no flowers on either, and I have read that I should have heavily manured the planting hole and mulched which I didnt really do. I also have few plants round them to offer shade to their "feet"......I haven't pruned at all due to their not being much to prune!...Should I replant, or make a couple of adjustments and be more patient?????? Thanks folks

Anyone oop North started planting yet ?

I'm new to veg growing in Glasgow, but have spuds chitting (1sts and main crop) and herbs and salad from seed, garlic in a bed.......have shallots and red onions waiting to go and was thinking of starting leek seeds on the windowsill this week......then I want to do carrots, parsnips, tomatoes, chillies and corn when its a bit hotter.....almost all in containers, see what happens....

Hi Bob, I bought some 38cm diam plant pots so I'm going to put a couple of shallot sets in one and a couple of red onion sets in another...then I'm going to put some more of each in small pots ot modular trays, before planting these into the soil as you describe...you can only try...

Thanks Janapana, can I ask what you used for compost?.....I take it you growed them from seed....I have some South facing windowsills which my potatoes (chitting) and herbs are on just now, was thinking I could try them there then pot them up in April.. Too early? Thanks again

I dont have a GH and was wondering if anyone has successfully grown tomatoes outside in the Glasgow area......I see a lot of updates from people a bit further South where it is usually a wee bit warmer...If anyone has, can you give me some tips ie if you used bags or containers etc

Many thanks

Has anyone grown reds or shallots in buckets or large pots? Have sets of boths and was thinking of giving it a go and also putting some straight into the soil.....also, are you placing sets or seeds into modular trays?? I have small pots, would it be worth starting my sets in these before planting out?   thanks for any info.

Morrisons are doing veg seeds relatively cheap (their own make - if you know what I mean). Allowing for the lack of variety, will these seeds be any good??

Container potatoes and veg

Watched a couple of Monty's videos re growing spuds and shallots in containers....he had a bin for the spuds but just a metal bucket for the shallots. 

Has anyone tried the shallots like this? Was thinking of trying it with shallots and red onions, and maybe even parsnips, if I can get big enough buckets...any thoughts??

I take it the type of container doesn't matter as long as there are drainage holes in the bottom?

Cheers
