Climbing plants

Posted: 08/11/2013 at 22:56

I have clematis and small climbing roses in tubs, but they need regular feeding and lots of water. Have a look at this site for clematis. http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/?gclid=CIHag9Wj1roCFQ7LtAodg3AA-Q

I have Phyllis Bide in a large tub from David Austin roses. http://www.davidaustinroses.com/english/showrose.asp?showr=685

I also have Trachelospermum Jasminoides in a tub, Star Jasmine.

Oh bother, that link didn't show the photos, but you should be able to find them in it. Here is Falstaff, wonder if the photo will work.

Have you seen the David Austin roses? Here is the page on red climbers.

They have a French catalogue too and deliver roses to France. I live in France too and have several David Austin roses, including a red climber called Falstaff on that page and Phyllis Bide that Matty mentioned above. I bought it bare rooted from David Austin.

Morning all.

Hope you enjoy Belgium, Chicky. Is it holiday or work?

We are going to the supermarket this morning. Need supplies for the dog and the cat for the housesitter to feed them while we're in England.

Wet again today. Still haven't got my tulips in, it's all so wet. But there's time yet.

HELLO FORKERS!

Good luck with your move Hollie. I hope you settle in well.

Sorry I'm not an expert, but I'm sure it will need pruning to keep it to the right shape so here is a link to the RHS pruning apple trees site.

Also if I reply it will push your post up and someone more expert may see it.

Planting in winter

Still time to plant bulbs for a pretty spring. They can go under your new trees. The right time for tree, shrub and rose planting from now to March.
