Hello Mike. I'm glad your blood test appointment went OK and the lady was nice. It does help! Hurts more when you are tense.

The Paul Bunnell test show whether you have had glandular fever when young.

Wisteria "Amethyst Falls" - is it ill?

Posted: 09/05/2014 at 22:21

I love the scent of the flowers. It looks healthy enough to me.

Dahlias

You put dahlias out after the risk of there being a frost, so normally not until mid May. The tubers can be started earlier in pots in a greenhouse.

Should planter be "self-contained" or open at the bottom?

I think open would be better too. It would need to have some openings anyway for drainage.

Geranium 'Rozanne'

How big are they? Did you buy plug plants or fully grown plants? When I bought 6 plug plants they weren't that big until the second year. I also bought one in a pot from the GC and it was quite big in it's first year.

I find this site a great help when choosing clematis. https://www.google.co.uk/#q=taylors+clematis

I bought Dr. Ruppel under a year ago, it seems to like the sun.

 

Dying Rhododendron

Mine looked like that when it was waterlogged. Is it in acid soil? Doesn't like alkali. Those aren't limestone chippings are they? They don't like limestone.
