Louise Row - Clematis

Posted: 17/03/2013 at 23:25

Perhaps you have seen this site, but they describe Louise Row as being pale mauve/white. It may help you find the other one.

What's the weather like in your area?

Glad about that. I'd have looked silly if it wasn't!!

Good luck Sue, hope you enjoy it. First day will be strange but I'm sure you'll settle in.

Looking good Deano!

I'm pretty sure that "Cerise" is a cordon tomato, on my french packet it says (in French) to pinch out the side shoots.

Lyon's photo is definitely lichen as Bob says. In Dordogne, where I live there is masses of it and the air is very pure.

which climber

If it's a south facing wall it shouldn't be too exposed in winter, it's protecting plants from north winds.

I have a pretty clematis called Diana with pink bell flowers on a south wall. Did you plant the clematis deep enough? Are you sure they are dead? They are usually pretty hardy, but they like their roots protected from the sun.

If you want something else then what about star jasmine, trachelospermum jasminoides? It is evergreen and has very fragrant small white flowers. Some say it can be a bit tender, but mine survived -17° last winter.

MOB rants

Hello Swiss Sue, I was getting regular emails then it stopped, but I haven't deleted the tick. It's happened before. The other thing that happens especially with the "weather" thread is it doesn't say "view first unread post" and there are more than 10 pages, so it's harder to get to the recent postings.

Seeds are up

Pestemons are germinating, took longer than the tomatoes etc. Does anyone know if they'll be big enough to flower this year? First time I've had them germinate, although I've sown them before.

MOB rants

I need a "Mob rant" because I'm not being sent it anymore? Am I forgotten or do you have to rant regularly to be updated?

Glad you put in the house, I'm one of the nosey ones! Looks as though it will be super a bit later.
