Late Summer/Autumn Clematis'

I also love Betty Corning, aym280, it has a wonderful scent. I have it in a pot, bought having seen it in a garden open for the NGS.

What are your most diisease free roses?

Shame about your Gertrude Jekyll. My David Austin roses seem more disease resistant than others, but I have most in pots and I feed and water them a lot. The ones in the ground need more watering than other roses I think. I have a climbing "The Pilgrim" which never shows any sign of disease. Lady Emma Hamilton did very well last year, but I've only had her for 2 years.

Sorry, I don't know. I've only grown one I bought in a garden centre, by it's third year it had grown so big and heavy that I left it outside, so it died, poor thing.

I love the smell of bluebells.

Roses "Lady Emma Hamilton" and "Constance Spry".

Honeysuckle.

Yes, rain water is important, meant to mention it. I live in a hard water area, they don't like hard water.

My two did much better when I added another one of a different variety for pollination. Mine are in large pots with ericaceous soil in shade in mid afternoon from the house. This year I will be netting them as the birds found out and starting taking the berries.

Whoop Whoop for Clari

Thanks all, I feel much more hopeful about the Cosmos now. I will pinch them out when they are bigger and, hopefully, they will grow bushy. Other years I've had tall ones in beds, but I don't think they really like the hot dry days in summer here. I wanted bushier shorter ones for pots so I can control the watering better and Antiquity looked lovely.
